[KOREA] 대구 3D2N DAEGU FOOD ADVENTURE

After staying in Seoul for almost 1.5 year, everytime i have day off i feel boring and always want to go other city in Korea, i asked my friend where to go and they suggest me Gyeongju, andong, and blabla but i am not really a historical and cultural lover so i thought it will be boring or maybe those will be my very last places i will be visited before go back to my country HAHA so finally i decided,  after Busan, second biggest city in korea, i will complete Korea's biggest city series, 3rd biggest city in Korea and known as industrial area...

대구
DAEGU

TRANSPORTATION TO DAEGU
By KTX ₩43200 - 1hour 40 minutes
By Mugunghwa ₩21500 - 4hours
By Bus (Premium) ₩25000 - 3hours 40 minutes
By Bus (Regular) ₩17200 - 3 hours 40 minutes
Bus from 동서울버스터미날 dong seoul bus terminal or 고속버스터미날 express bus terminal.

TRANSPORTATION IN DAEGU
as daegu is modern big city same as seoul and busan, you can use subway and bus everywhere ( +/-₩1200) or if you lazy to make itinerary and browsing bus and train schedule, you can use DAEGU CITY TOUR BUS only ₩5000 for oneday use and if you arrive in Daegu using ktx or bus on the same day you'll get 20% discount. check their schedule here 
ACCOMODATION IN DAEGU
Hotel, motel,hostel, tons of choicez here but because i am backpacker i chose jjimjilbang HAHA i browsed  "Goongjeon lavender" located only around 15 minutes by bus from Dong daegu KTX train station, made it as the best cheap accomodation for travellers. you can take taxi for only ₩3500won or bus no. 156 or any bus with bus stop "pyeonghwa market". Price ₩9000 for jimjilbang ( but i got cheap promotion so i just paid ₩5400) :3


MUST DO IN DAEGU
To be honest, Daegu doesnt really a great city with tourism objects since its an industrial city ( even local people said that) but still some places you can enjoy while visiting this city.







MUST EAT IN DAEGU
as in Korea each area has it speciality in food, based on daegufood.go.kr I tried some best local food and also recommended for you guys!







Overall for me personally (every person's view different) as my boss said, nothing to see in Daegu but IT TOTALLY RECOMMENDED FOR FOOD ADVENTURE. All food in Daegu really fits my tongue. p.s dont forget to go with lots of friends or you'll gain weight like me for going alone

  1. I plan to visit Daegu (along with Busan) next year on my own. Do you think 4 days is too long to stay in the city? (Same for Busan, I will be in South Korea for eight days.)

    I saw that you posted separately about the things you did in Daegu. I will definitely get some ideas from your blog!

    1. heyy!

      you can searched "DONGDAEGU" for ktx
      because if you just entered "DAEGU" it just regular train

      and for DAEGU - BUSAN you can buy by kobus or just directly buy in bus sttion it's okay if you dont go while high season

    1. for transportation, you can take bus for cheaper option but if you want faster option, you can take ktx or train. and from daegu station you can take local bus to palgongsan.

      hmmm maybe just okay not super yellowish still greeny hahahaa but I'm not really sure since now korea already quite cold hehe

      you can ask more if you still don't understand
      cheers!
