Daejeon Tourism

Daejeon City Tour

The best way to get a feel for a strange city, in a foreign country, is to take a guided bus tour of the major sights. You'll then have an idea of where to go to spend a little more time later.

Eight Scenic Places

Yuseong Hot Springs, Gyejok Mountain, Sikjang Mountain, Gubong Mountain, Jangtae Mountain, Bomun Mountain, Daecheong Lake and Expo Science Park are all worth a visit.

Mountains of Daejeon

And if the eight scenic places are not enough, you can find more tranquility at some of the other Daejeon mountains.

Parks of Daejeon

Daejeon has some thirteen parks for visitors to enjoy some natural space.

Daejeon Tourist Information:
3-1 Doryong-dong, Yuseong-gu, Daejeon (within Expo Science Park).

Unless they have route maps in time for the World Cup, the best thing to do is ask someone.
