If you want to go on holiday in South Korea as a pensioner, then the city of Daegu is a good choice. The metropolis is a colorful city. Because it combines both a centuries-old history with modernity. Today, the city is world-renowned for textile manufacturing and fashion. For a holiday in the city, a visit to the Haein Temple is recommended just outside the gates. The temple from the year 802 is not only worth seeing for structural reasons, but also offers space for Buddhist texts on around 80,000 wooden panels. If you want to see Daegu and the region from above, you can also visit the 83 Tower. This is a TV tower with a height of 200 m. On a good day you have a wide view here, including the well-known Talsong Fortress. This fortress should not be missing from the sights.
Travel recommendation: If you want to relax
In addition to the different building fabric of the city, which is worth seeing, you can also relax well. And that is not only possible in the outskirts of the city, but also in the city center. Here the two rivers flow. You can relax and go for a walk on the banks and in the adjoining parks. These can be found again and again along the rivers. A boat trip, which can be booked on site, is also recommended. From the water, you get a completely different view of the city. And finally, a small tip: If you are interested in medicinal herbs as a pensioner, we recommend a visit to the numerous markets in the city. The Yangnyeongsi should be mentioned here in particular. This has been around for a good 350 years and is still of great importance for medicine in South Korea.
