Daegu although one of the largest cities in South Korea is a less popular tourist spot compare to Seoul but this city is equally exquisite and has its own unique attractions. If you happen to pass by this area, here are some of the things worth considering.
Daegu is home of historical temples and every tourist is welcome to visit and meditate in this place. The Donghwasa is well-known for its amazing Buddha statues and historical structures. The place, although teeming with people has a serene atmosphere that would entice you to meditate and pray.
The Seomun Market is a must see especially to foreigners. The place is full of vendors selling thousands of things from clothing to food to handicrafts to souvenirs and pots. You can bargain for something that you like but expect to shed cash because you’ll be tempted to buy more than what you came for.
The Daegu Museum of Oriental Medicine and the Daegu Oriental Medicine Market are also some of the best tourist spots in the city.
Travelers are also encouraged to visit Palgongsan and spend some time hiking to see some of the wonderful sceneries in Daegu.
Daegu has plenty of places to eat and you won’t have a problem finding something that you like because it has different offerings from western to authentic Korean meals. Vegans and other people with special dietary requirements can also find good restaurants that offer foods especially for them. At the KNU North Gate a popular rock bar called the Gypsy Rock is located. You can visit the place and meet new people or just drink the night alone.
There are plenty of love hotels in the city if you are looking for a cheap way to rest for a while. These are similar to motels in other places which are available to be rented for a few hours. If you want more savings on few days’ accommodation, then go to the downtown and look for the Danim backpackers.
