Bus from Gyeongju to Busan

by cyc_827 Online Now Feb 9, 2012 at 6:43 PM

We are not sure whether to go to Gyeongju from Busan for a long day visit (this is preferred) or stay overnight at Gyeongju.
Hope to get some help with our planning:
1) we would like to take photos of Ch'eomseongdae observatory tower and Anapji pond lit up at after dark. Is the night lighting switch on everynight? And from what time to what time?
2) we have the bus timings for Busan to Gyeongju, but not the other way round. What time is the last bus from Gyeongju to Busan and from which bus terminal?

    The lights on the observatory tower are on from sunset until 10~11pm depending if it is winter or summer.

    Anapji Pond is open for visitation from 9am until 10pm.

    I personally have visited both in the day and night and agree that the illumination at night is quite beautiful and photogenic.

    The last bus between Gyeongju/Busan that I find from the Express Bus Terminal (not far from the observatory) leaves at 10:30pm.
