It started to tip it down with rain as I got to Donghawasa and I suspect I'd have spent longer there if it had been dry! However it's a beautiful temple and the enormous statue is very impressive. I especially liked the lovely paintings on...More
We visited the temple on a misty Monday. The mist and fog added to the mystery and beauty of this place. It also made it virtually deserted. Being a Monday, several parts of the temple were closed. The museum, the temple food area, and most...More
Beautiful views, ample parking, and a lot to see. My children are 10&13 and enjoyed seeing a traditional temple. We visited, same time, last year. Toilet facilities are out houses or "squatty potties". Bring soap, bathrooms were not equipped:(

This may sound strange, BUT check the Daegu Facebook Group for foreigners. I have only been to the downtown area and my guess is that most here aren't either haha. Someone in the Daegu area will know exactly the best way to get around, what's grouped together.
One Day in Daegu (3 Replies)
Hi I will be spending one day in Daegu in March and wondering what is the 'must-see' in Daegu. My current plan is to visit Donghwasa Temple by taking city bus 105 or 131. After visiting the temple, to go to the downtown area like Yasi Golmok Street or Daehyun Primall for some shopping. Or are there other more interesting sights in Daegu which can be done in one day? Hope to get your suggestions. Thanks!
