2016 July: South Korea: Things to do in Daegu

Daegu is one of the six metropolitan (first level) cities of South Korea, located in North Gyeongsang Province.  It has 2 subway lanes,1 monorail and multiple bus routes to access the city.

Day 1
  • Enjoy the multitude of cafes to choose from  in Dong Daegu KTX
  • Visit the restaurants in Jungangno (e.g. C'est La Vie, Flavors of Daegu)
  • Walk around Banwoldang to Daegu
  • Visit the churches and appreciate the architecture
  • Experience Love Rain's 1970's student life in Daemyeong-dong campus Keimyung University (from Namsan station, monorail)   

Day 2
Have some rest from the bustling transfers across the trains and buses and join an English theme tour by Korean Tourism.  Select either from Mt. Pangolsan or Biseul Mountain course

Day 3

  • Experience again the scenes from Jo In Sung's It's Okay, That's Love in Herb Hills
  • Be one with nature and walk along the metasequoia trees

  • Can't get enough of Jungangno, revisit and shop 'til you drop.  Explore the main and street sides of cafes, clothes and more cafes. 

With heavy rains during the monsoon season, I was able to cover the above sites.  However, there are more to see in Daegu like the below which no longer fit my schedule:
  • The 83 Tower (for Running Man)
  • Suseungmot Lake (for the water fountain light show)
  • Mt. Apsan Obsservatory
  • The ARC River Culture Pavilion (Running Man Episode 311, August 2016; Episode 238 March 2015)
  • Arboretum
  • Cheongdo Wine Tunnel (청도 와인터널) (for 2 days 1 night Episode 456, Jul 31 2016)
  • Seomun Market (Running Man Episode 327, November 2016)
