Things to Do in Daegu EWorld

Daegu is the fourth largest city in South Korea after Seoul, Busan, and Incheon. It is located in south-eastern Korea, near Busan than Seoul. Daegu is officially known as Daegu Metropolitan City (대구광역시) and a city surrounding by mountain.

Have you ever heard 'Daefrica' (Daegu Africa)?
Yeah, it is nickname for Daegu as the hottest city in South Korea. That's why Daegu hold Chimek (chicken-mekju) event in every summer. The best time to visit Daegu is in spring and autumn actually, but winter will not be a problem. The weather will not drop too much and not as cold as Seoul weather, but it is hard to find snow in Daegu.

b) Palgongsan and Donghwasa Temple (팔공산 - 동화사)
The highest mountain in Daegu (I think). Take red bus (급행1) until Palgongsan. Then you may start to hiking or take the cable car. But you still have to walk along to get to cable car station. Since you are in Palgongsan, then don't forget to visit Donghwasa temple just by walk.
