Get relaxed at Daegu’s famous Jjimjilbangs

Have you heard of or been to Jjimjilbang?
No?? You don’t even know the meaning of the word??
Let’s look it up on Wiki then~~

A Jjimjilbang (찜질방) is a large, gender-segregated public bathhouse in Korea, furnished with hot tubs, showers, Finnish-style saunas, and massage tables, similar to a Korean sauna or mogyoktang. Jjimjil is derived from the words meaning heated bath. However, in other areas of the building or on other floors there are unisex areas, usually with a snack bar, ondol-heated floor for lounging and sleeping, wide-screen TVs, exercise rooms, ice rooms, heated salt rooms, PC bang, noraebang, and sleeping quarters with either bunk beds or sleeping mats. Many of the sleeping rooms can have themes or elements too them. Usually Jjimjilbangs will have various rooms with different temperatures to suit your preferred sleeping temperature. They inlay the walls with different woods to make the ambient mood and smell more natural.

Most jjimjilbangs are open 24 hours and are a popular weekend getaway for Korean families. Jjimjilbangs are also popular with Korean women, and traditionally, Korean mothers used to take care of themselves in rooms made of red clay for three weeks before giving birth.
