  1. Gyeongbukgung Palace is nice. Bukchon Hanok Village and Cheonggyecheon Stream were more hype than substance, but you may get more out of than I did. But the Daegu Chicken and Beer and Body Painting Festival are the real deal. If you like hikes, Apsan Mtn and the cable car are nice too. Beomeosa, eh… jjimjilbang definitely. And I hate K-pop SOOOOO much!! lol Have fun!!

    • Thanks for the tips! I haven’t heard of the Body Painting Festival, but that sounds rad! I honestly don’t like KPop too much, either, but I think it would be an experience to go to a show while I’m here. I like hiking, too. So I’ll definitely look into Apsan Mountain 😀
