Gyeongsangnam-do, or Gyeongnam in short, lies South, adjacent to Gyeongsangbuk-do, and is next to the second largest city, Busan. It houses cities such as Tongyeong, Changwon and Jinju. Much like Gyeongbuk, it contains several cultural and historical remnants from the Chosun Period, and much of the landmarks remain untouched, in order to retain its natural scenery.
Visitors can expect to go to attractions such as Miryang, Geoje or Gimhae. Gyeongnam also houses a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Haeinsa Buddhist temple, which has many tourists visit daily. You can also visit Tongyeong City for a tour and sightsee along the Southern beaches and islands.
