Together with a Korean friend, Adrienne Hill, an American vlogger living in Busan, took a day tour to the city Gyeongju, known as a thousand-year-old capital and also the cradle of Korean culture and history.

During the tour around the beautiful city of Gyeongju, they provide viewers chances to visit historical heritage sites from Daereungwon Tomb Complex - the place that preserves the ancient tombs at the time of the Silla kingdom to Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond; and Cheomseongdae Observatory, the oldest existing astronomical observatory in Asia, also known as Korea's National Treasure No. 31. 

Besides, Gyeongju is often referred to as "the museum without walls" with its rich culture. Adrienne Hill and her friend - tour guide Jiseong enjoyed the multifaceted cultural space at Gyeongju World Culture EXPO Park and spent time contemplating art pieces in Solgeo Art Museum.

Not only explore traditional historical culture, but they also used electric scooters and had fun at traditional home-styled "Hanok" cafes and restaurants on Hwanglidangil Street. 

The video has gained more than 14,000 views and comments from viewers around the world. Many of them express their eagerness to travel to Korea once the pandemic ends.
