Day 1 at Colorful Daegu: National Museum, Apsan Park & Suseong Lake
Hello everyone! Hope you guys are having a wonderful week and people living in South Korea, hope you had a great Chuseok vacation! This year during Chuseok, my husband and I decided to go to Daegu, a city that is really close to Busan. We stayed there for two days and one night. For today I will write about day 1, and I promise day 2 is coming soon!
So in day 1, we went to Daegu National Museum first. It is a brick built two storied building. According to wikipedia it was first opened in 1994. There are different halls in the museum, however it has three main halls, the ancient culture hall, the medieval culture hall & clothing culture hall. The museum is quite big so make sure you have enough time in your hand.
Next we went to Apsan Park. Apsan park is one of the largest urban eco park in daegu covering a huge area. This park contains numerous walking trails, war memorial hall of Nakdonggang river and different temples and monuments. However the main attraction is the cable car that goes up to 790 meter high.
A little drawback of roaming around during chuseok is most of the restaurants are closed during the time, as it’s a national holiday. Those which were open, were only allowing takeout. For chain restaurants-bakeries not all outlets were open. We had to walk a long distance to get us a pizza.
We went to Suseong lake at night. There is a musical fountain show for 30 minutes during May to October at 8 and 9 pm. The show was just magical!

Actually my WordPress account is already full of different media files as it has a limited capacity. So it feels like a travel vlog is better. Although I am thinking about getting a premium account but I am not sure about if I will be able to continue after buying one as my PhD life is getting really busy.
Hope you enjoyed the post!
