Daegu City Profile (formerly Taegu)
Daegu is the third largest city in South Korea and is located midway between Seoul and Busan, just east of Togyu-san and Kaya-san National Parks.
In east-central South Korea
Buses to and from Busan go through the Express Bus Terminal. There are four other bus stations in Daegu: the North, South, East, and West Terminals. Buses to and from Kimchon go through the North Bus Terminal. Trains only serve local locations, not major cities.
Places of Interest
Haein-sa Temple, Kaya-san National Park, Togyu-san National Park, and P'algongsan Provincial Park are all within thirty minutes of Taegu. P'algongsan Park features Tonghwasa temple and the Grand Stone Buddhist Image for Unification Desire, the largest statue of Buddha in Korea.
