Daegu is only a 2 hour train ride from Daejeon (on the slow Mugunghwa train… click here for the KORAIL website to book your train tickets online). There is loads to see and do in Daegu, but once we arrived there we got sucked into the shopping ( we counted at least 5 seperate shopping malls! Not to mention the hundreds of other shops everywhere) and spent the whole day wondering around the busy streets and drinking coffee in cute cafe’s.
The shopping is all located downtown. To get there from the Train Station, go out exit 1 (which is right by the big Lotte Department Store) and then just walk straight (cross under the road) for about 10 minutes. You’ll end up right in the center of Downtown.
Primall is the name of the underground shopping where there are loads of great deals on Electronics…as well as the usual boutiques…
While we were walking around this really cool street performance started up right in front if us…it was bizarre but totally awesome.
There’s a big stone Buddah called Gat-bah-wi, and it’s said that he can make one of your wishes come true. You only get one so make it count!
