“DO NOT MISS IT! Activities that you can enjoy at the Beginning of Winter Season in Daegu”

DO NOT MISS IT! Activities that you can enjoy at the Beginning of Winter Season in Daegu”

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.

(Source : Daegu Opera House Homepage)

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!

🌠Starry night in Daegu! Riverside Auto Camping Site

🌠Starry night in Daegu! 
Riverside Auto Camping Site

Why don’t you enjoy camping with your family or your lover at Riverside Auto Camping Ground this late autumn?
We’d like to introduce a camping ground located in the outskirt of Daegu, Dalseong-gun.

This camping place is being managed by Daegu city, and it is near from the downtown area of Daegu. So it’s getting more popular.
It’s kind of crowded during the weekend.

At Leports Valley of the Nakdong River, which runs in front of the camping ground, you can enjoy and experience various marine sports in summer.
Unfortunately, we cannot do them at this cold time.

Daegu Riverside auto camping ground has 29 sites, and each site is large-sized and electricity is available in each site.

We take a rest and enjoy there a lot without any inconvenience even in winter.

Let's take a look at this campsite.
The whole camping ground was covered with gravels, so it is easy to drain on a rainy day and sand dust does not fly!

Best of all, they always keep toilets and shower booths very clean.

Warm water is pouring out from taps, so we can always take a warm water shower.

On the opposite side of the camping ground, there is a booth where we can experience ATV, archery and electric wheel.

When we go camping outdoors, you always think of delicious food on a grill and talking a lot sitting around a campfire late at night.


At night, we can so so many stars over the campground and we feel like floating in the milky night sky.

The star-gaze with your family or your lover from there will be amazing, because we can see 
the starlight that is not seen in Daegu city.

Happy Night with pouring stars ~~

To use Daegu Riverside Auto Camping Ground, we should make a reservation in advance 
only through the internet. (
Check-in is at 2:00 pm and check-out is until 12:00 of the next day.
The fee to use a site per day is 25,000 Kw. 
When using an individual caravan, an additional 
charge, 5,000 Kw is incurred!

Electricity is available, hot water is available, and a bicycle road next to the camping ground 
is also nice.
