Daejeon

3.8
Hot Springs · Landmarks · Wildlife Areas
A sprawling metropolis and center for research, Daejeon stands as the fifth largest city in South Korea. Situated in the center of the country where much of the country's transport links intersect, Daejon has grown from a spillover city of Seoul to a highrise urban landscape of its own, with over 15 universities and countless research centers. Start your Daejeon sightseeing with a walking tour across the city's various museums and expos before heading to the popular hot springs resorts for some deep relaxation away from the bustling din. Because the city has well-connected transport links, most visitors choose to explore the vast city via subway; some even venture out to the edge of the city for hiking along the surrounding mountain ranges. Whether you only want to go to Daejeon, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly South Korea trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Daejeon

As with most sprawling cities, Daejeon offers a spectrum of accommodation options, ranging from the economical to the luxurious. For budget-friendly hostels, hotels, and “Jjimjilbangs” (overnight bath houses) look toward the intercity bus terminal district and the Old Town, just south of the Jungangno nightlife district. For western style mid-range hotels and luxurious four- and five-star lodgings on your Daejeon vacation, seek out the district surrounding the Yuseong Spa area, where close subway links allow easy access from which to explore rest of the city.
