Winter has finally
arrived in Daegu City. Some of us may want to stay at our homes during these
days but some of us would love to enjoy and take advantage of the cold
weather. In that case, I would like to
share with you these lists of activities that you can do in Daegu during this
time of the year.
1. Starlight Festival in E-world
Daegu E-world theme park hosts its 6th year Starlight Festival. I must say that it is one of my favorite tourist spots in Daegu City as I have been here four times already. It has become my own tradition to visit the Starlight Festival in E-world.
There are so many activities to enjoy inside such as eating korean snacks, photo zones, buying souvenirs at gift shops, playing arcades, entering ghost house, and if you are adventurous enough, you might want to try riding the Skyway or the boomerang roller coaster among others. Capture beautiful moments with your family, friends and even your lover.

When I was a little girl, I watched the Nutcracker 1993 and became my favorite movie of all time. That started my dream to see a live ballet show performance of the Nutcracker and I am more than happy to share this GOOD NEWS! Tchaikovsky’s favorite winter ballet is coming to Daegu Opera House and it will be performed by the Korean National Ballet company. Who’s excited?

3. Lion King Musical Show
If you think that the Nutcracker Ballet Show is too girly or just not your cup of tea, then I would suggest the Lion King Musical Show for you! After all, I still think that Lion King is the best movie of all time. I highly recommend this musical show for disney lovers, families, friends and sweet hearts.
INSIDER TIP : If you are a K-drama fan like me, the musical is held in Keimyung University where the famous Boys Over Flowers filmed some of the scenes while the other Keimyung University was also used by a different K-drama entitled Love Rain. Please make sure to visit the right one!
Lion King Musical Show : 7th of November - 25th of December
