Daegu City Tour Bus: Open Top, Hop-on, Hop-off City Tour Bus for tourists

Get on the Open top bus to have a comfortable Daegu tour while enjoying the cool air.

Since the 21st of March 2015, a two-floor-open-top type of city tour bus has been introduced and operational





The Daegu city tour bus’route starts from the first point which is the Dongdaegu Station then to the other 14 stations from 9:30 to 18:40 with an interval of 40 minutes.

The convenient thing about it is that it is a Hop-on, Hop-off bus that allows you to get off at the station to look around and get on to the next bus.







The bus is painted with children’s favorite character TAYO,a little bus.

It is easy to find since it is conspicuously red in color.  





The front part of the 2nd floor of the bus has big glasses on the roof and the sides, while the rear part is open. Because of the whole glass, you can sightsee without missing anything while seated on the front seat. 

You can see the outside at a glance while holding on to a safety bar.







Monorail Line 3 is passing by above. 

If you do not like the cold or if you have carsickness, you may take the seats on the 1st floor since there are seats there, too.


Moreover, if you take the city tour bus, you can listen to the cultural heritage commentator who shares interesting stories and describes the famous spots along the way.






Daegu is opening a subway up to Line 3 in April.
