Social Tours are scheduled on October 14, 2017. All the participants can choose one of the following two options. One is Tour to Gyeong-ju, and the other is Daegu City Tour.
The City of Gyeong-ju has an important and rich history. For centuries, the city served as the capital of the Silla Dynasty (57-935 BC), the longest period of reign in the history of Korea. Even today, you will find ancient landmarks blanketing the city. These ancient relics are such an integral part of the landscape that is commonly known as the “museum without walls.”
It will take an hour from EXCO to Gyong-ju by limousine bus. We will guide you to visit several historical sites including 2 UNESCO World Heritage Sites (Gyeong-ju Historic Areas, and Seokguram Grotto and Bulguksa Temple). Ancient Cheomseongdae Observatory and Underwater Tomb of King Munmu are other attractions to visit. The tour schedule will be posted here around the conference.
Daegu Metropolitan City, the center of Gyeongbuk (North Gyeongsang Province) with 2.5 million population is a historical city taking over great culture from Silla Kingdom and Gaya Confederacy. It is strongly recommended for you to experience creative, gourmet, or healing tour in Daegu having the countless number of heritages, past and future. The tour schedule will be posted here around the conference.
