Here’s a short introduction of what I saw in Daejeon during my trip there in summer 2012.
Daejeon is famous for being home to the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST), one of Korea’s top universities.
I’ve never been to KAIST to take a look, but I’ve been to Hanbat National University instead. It’s really scenic and quiet there.
Say department Store
1-16 Munhwa 1(il)-dong, Jung-gu, Daejeon, South Korea
This is my favorite mall. It’s similar to North Point and Golden Village in Yishun. Why I love it:
- Has budaejjigae (army stew). It’s a delicious pot of instant ramyeon, spam, sausage, egg, baked beans, and kimchi. The first time I had budaejjigae was there.
- Has a really comfy movie theater
- Has Smoothie King

This deserves a category of its own.
Best bread and pastries in Korea! It’s conveniently located next to Old Downtown, or Eunhangdong. It’s the most awesome shopping street – not commercialized like MyeongDong. You could get nails done for really cheap!
Whenever I go to Korea the ice cream is a must have.
This brings back good memories of walking around the street on a lovely day eating street food with my boyfriend. And this was already five years ago! I’ll always cherish those innocent and carefree moments where everything felt new and fresh.
