Dating places at Daegu / Have you heard of White Day?

What Day is February 14? Valentine’s Day!
How about March 14? 

In Korea, March 14 is White Day. It’s your first time to hear White Day, right?

On Valentine’s Day, a girl confesses her love to a boy she loves by giving chocolates while on White Day, it is a boy confessing his love to a girl he loves by giving candies. Every 14th day of month is one of the anniversaries made for lovers, and Valentine’s Day and White Day are most famous. 

Thus, chocolates and candies are making huge sales on February and March.

However, spending a precious time with beloved only with chocolates and candies would be insufficient. So, Daegu Travel would like to recommend wonderful dating places for you. 

Ongki Jongki Village

First place we would like to recommend is ‘Ongki Jongki Village’ which is Korea’s graffiti village just like one in Melbourne, Australia.
