Summer Getaway: All about BANWOLDANG Underground Shopping Center

Banwoldang Underground Shopping Center
the biggest underground shopping mall in Daegu

Banwoldang underground shopping center is the central place in Daegu downtown. It connects the two main subway lines in Daegu: Line 1(Red) and Line2(Green). On your way to walk out of the station, you will pass Daegu’s largest underground shopping center which has over 20 exits! Be careful not to lose your way outJ

Banwoldang Metro Center, known simply as Banwoldang underground shopping center among locals, is a good place for people who want to buy clothes, accessories, bags, shoes, cosmetic at reasonable price. There are so many famous Korean cosmetic road shops located there, for example, the Face Shop, Nature Republic, Innispree, Etude, Olive Young, LOHB, Skin Food, It’s Skin, etc.

Challenge yourself purchasing a full set of outfit at less than 25,000 won. You don’t need to spend too much to be stylish. A lot of cute T-shirt, skirt, and accessories are affordable. The price is decent overall, but some items are overly priced, so you should be careful. The most interesting thing is you can get big discount if your bargain skill works well. For example, there are so many kinds of socks which come in variety in color, style with relative low price. Normally, a pair of socks costs ₩1,000, however, if you buy more than five you can get discount at least by ₩1,000.
Two key sentences for foreigner when shopping here are 얼마에요? (How much is it?) and 깎아주세요 (please give me a discount), you may not speak Korean, but you must remember and practice these two sentences, they are so meaningful with your wallet.

There are also nail shops and photography studios
