Asia: New Tours Highlight Daegu
South Korean city Daegu has redesigned the visitor experience through four new itineraries unveiled recently by the Daegu Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).
Known as Deagu Colorful Tour, the tours explore four different geographical regions and experiences in the city.
The Daegu Modern History Alley Tour takes visitors through several downtown locations that clue them in on Daegu’s contribution to Korean history, including the original site of Samsung Group’s headquarters. Yangnyeongsi, South Korea’s oldest and largest oriental medicine market, is also on the itinerary, as is the historic textile market, Seomun market.
Alternatively, visitors can travel to Suseong or Gachang beyond downtown Daegu to experience local life by hiking Mt Apsan or unwinding at a jjimjilbang, or Korean bath house, in Spa Valley.
The third itinerary offers cycling down the Nakdong river path for beautiful sunset views and a trip to Mabijung Mural Village, which is full of art and culture.
