Savvy Traveler’s Choices: Korea Stamp Tour, Street Tour, City Tour, Cheongna Bus Tour, Korea Travel Week! (PREVIEW 2018)

We savvy travelers love getting ourselves informed before we go on our exploration! Here are 5 smart ways that can make your travel even easier!


One of the most fun ways to enjoy landmarks of Daegu is to go on a Daegu Stamp Trail Tour! It marks the 18th year in 2018! Grab a booklet at a Daegu Tourist Information Center near you and star exploring Daegu. There were 64 places on the list last year, who knows what additional landmarks will be included this year? Korean citizens have to complete 30 and expats 10 off the list to claim your reward and official certificate! If you have a kid, it will bring the kid a great memory exploring a foreign city with parents!
