How to Navigate Downtown Daegu

Downtown can be intimidating to navigate upon your initial stroll through the hustle and bustle of Daegu. Although just as Bruno Mars reassures us we can count on him like 1, 2, 3, figuring out how to get to your destination is just as easy. Simply remember the 3 hot spots. 
There is also an underground mall at Banwoldang.

#1 Novotel (north)
They have a huge sign on top of their building so every once in a while as long as you know where it is you will have a basic idea where things are, at night it lights up.

#2 Banwoldang (south)
There is a very large road, that goes all the way across so that would be the point you don’t cross if you want to stay downtown. There is also an underground mall to check out with small clothes and makeup shops.

#3 The Stage (central)
It is in front of the Daegu department store and near a McDonalds and a Burger King. This is a good meet up point because it is very central, also from there, you can go into many different streets with different types of shops and restaurants. 

Also on the map at the top there are places like

Bar street

Nail salon street

Sports street

Food Street

And Cosmetics lane

If you walk around enough you will find things you didn't know existed, but these three spots will help you always find your way back so you won't get lost as easily. The pictures were taken during a festival so they aren't as clear as they should but you should be able to get and idea.
