After the misadventure in Jain, I took the bus straight from Jain and into Daegu. I missed the station I was supposed to get off so I ended up walking. However, since I was rejected from the restaurant in Jain, I was super hungry and went to any fast food restaurant I can possibly find.
The next stop was Daegu Museum! Admission fee is free! It has two floors and an awesome souvenir store with postcards!
Like most museums, each room has their own theme as well as a permanent and temporary exhibition. There is one permanent exhibition about textiles of the world.
There is also a temporary exhibition about ancient states found in Daegu. Daegu had composed of tiny ancient states before it eventually became unified state – Silla. There are many tombs and potteries found all over Daegu with excavations still being done. Being the Daegu museum, I actually thought this would be a permanent display since this is distinctively Daegu.
Right next to the museum is Beomeo Park, which was more of a large hill than a park. It was quite huge with many park trails. THOUGHTS: I find that people here likes to take shortcuts and there are many off beaten paths … I took one and ended up with some very muddy shoes LOL.
The final place of the day is Bancheon Market! It took a while for me to find this place, because it is close to downtown but not quite. You have to get off at Keimyung Hospital Station, take off at exit 3, and then walk some 10 minutes. Apparently, it used to be a poorer area but it has been revitalized in recent years thanks to the murals dedicated to Kim Gwangseok-gil (a musician who had once lived in this neighbourhood).
There are also a lot of cafes and restaurants here. We went to a Japanese fusion restaurant near the market. The price was fairly ok and we ate quite a bit.
Finally, we had cheesecake at a very nice coffee shop! It was a little bit pricey but it was ok 🙂
… that was February 21 2017.
