Daegu (대구, 大邱), also spelled Taegu, is the third largest city in South Korea.
Daegu is the fourth biggest city in S.Korea. Dubbing itself "Colourful Daegu", Daegu is situated in the middle of a wide, flat valley. Thus it is quite literally rectangular in shape, with the subway system forming a stretched X over this region. The city plays host to one of South Korea's largest US military bases. To learn more about the city, you can borrow a PDA from Tourist Information Center at Daegu Airport, Daegu Tourist Information Center and some hotels for your trip. It contains tourist information such as maps, transportation, tourist sites, accommodation, restaurants and shopping, and GPS service. In addition, it also provides useful expressions in Korean, English and Japanese, and has a '119' key which will be used for emergencies. If you have a local ID card (or passport) and credit card, you can use the PDA for free but you need to pay a communications fee. Tel :053-803-3633 .
