Hi~ friends! My name is Jeffrey living in Daegu. I’m a really travel-holic guy and my life is full of a plan to go anywhere in the all over the world. I’ve just been China ~ Australia ~ Thai ~ Laos, and Vietnam. But it is just a starting point for my great dream. I’m really interested in photography, so I’m practicing taking a sensitive portrait nowadays. The impressive photo, what I take for you, makes your memory about travel much stronger. Making your memorable travel would be my huge honor. Don’t hesitate, just join with me ! You can find more about myself on my Instagram! ->

Culture / Food



First, Seomun Market

Daegu is one of the hottest city in Korea every summer. (Literally HOT like hell)
So people usuall call it Dae-frica. (It is a compound word of Daegu and Africa.)
It is still keeping hot, even at night time, so many Dae-fricans can’t sleep well at night.
There is a saying that goes “If you can’t avoid it, enjoy it!”
So, my tour has some meanings that overcoming the disadvantage of Daegu tour.

Above all, Night market tour is the best choice in that case.
There are lots of food(even local food) and dessert, so it can make your palate satisfied.
Cold beverage, shaved ice, even beer is waiting for you.
Also, CHI-MAEK(Chicken+Beer) which is the best combination in the late-night meal is prepared too.
You can enjoy not only lots of delicious food but also cooking process at the same time.
The splendid cooking process makes food more delicious and promotes eat anything.
The night market is kind of huge complex cultural space. So, there are some mini stages prepared.
On the stage, anyone can be a singer or dancer. You become an audience willy-nilly.

Second, Café Mix

After dinner in the night market, A mysterious café, Café Mix, is waiting for you.
On the way to café, you can walk along old town streets and see the night view of old town.
Café Mix is a mixed building which was built in 1910’s and 1950’s.
So, you can feel old paint stain, and rough wooden walls with cold beverages.
It is so calm that we can take a deep conversation without noise.
There is only one disturbance, which is a really cute dog, ‘MIX’.

This tour only depends on you. End of the tour does not literally mean ending.
It can be a new start of sleepless night party if you want.
Awesome bars and pubs are prepared as well as café.
Feel and beat hot summer and enjoy a sleepless night in Daegu, TOGETHER!
