Daegu Tour riding Urban Railway _ Episode 16 – Places to visit near the Children Hall and Yongji station at Daegu Monorail Line 3

We’ve already reached the last series of Daegu Tour riding Urban Railway!

Let’s leave the feeling of disappointment behind as I will introduce places to visit around the Children Hall and Yongji station, which is the last route in Monorail Line 3!

The Children Hall Station ~ Yongji Station Area

[The Children Hall Station-The Children Hall]
The first place to visit today is the Children Hall where Daegu citizens’ reminiscences are remained intact.

As you can feel already from the name of the place itself, the Children Hall is a place for picnic, field trip and outing where children from Daegu have gone to at least once.
It has the Culture Experience Center that triggers diverse imaginations of the children, the reading room, the exhibit hall, and the lawn and park located in front of the hall where people can take a rest. 

[Hwanggeum Station- Beomeo stream]

The second place I would like to introduce is Beomeo Stream.

This place, with a total length of 7.9km, is a perfect place to walk along the stream.
Beomeo Stream is most attractive at night! The stunning lights coming from the stream itself and the surrounding skyscrapers are just amazing!

Try to walk along the Beomeo Stream, holding hands with your boyfriend/girlfriend!

[Suseong Pond Station – Suseong Pond/Amusement Park]
The last place I am introducing today is Suseong pond and Suseong amusement park.
As a shelter that represents Suseong-gu, Suseong pond is a huge pond around which walkways, fancy hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops are located. People from young adults to senior citizens often visit the place. 
Suseong pond, too, has an amazing night view!!!

Lights coming from the surrounding apartments and walkways form a harmony and sparkle marvelously.
Despite it being small, Suseong amusement park has every kind of rides that children would love!
Moreover, wonderful Suseong Festival takes place in Suseong pond every autumn.
Do you now have the full grasp of Daegu Metro Railway?

Dashing through the snow~ Let’s go to Spa Valley to enjoy sled riding!

While the Spa Valley in Daegu is popular for its spa service especially during the summer, it is also well known for family outing and field trip during the winter because of its sledding slope  
After purchasing 2 tickets of sled package for adults at the ticketing office, you will see cute cookie-men welcoming you from the entrance. 


Remember that the Spa Valley is really big, so check your location first fusing the direction board.

You can find amazing ice sculptures and huge waterfalls everywhere. *_*
Can you feel the winter~?
Now, get ready to go ride on a sled! I’m excited!
I was so thrilled to enter the place. Note that the snow sledding operates until 5 o’ clock in the afternoon.
Now you see the sledding slope that is divided into two sections according to the height. 
Children below 10, including the guardian should use the lower section at the right side and the rest can use the higher section at the left.

You can feel the height once you come up the slope. 
It was higher than what I expected down the hill.
Try to buy from the snack stalls in front of the sledding slope when you feel hungry. Different foods such as soups and skewers are prepared for you.
Are you ready for the ice sledding? 

You will find a separate slope for ice sledding if you go up straight from the sledding slope. 
Now, get ready to watch the “Garden of Lights”!
The Feast of Lights that dazzled the place all around was really amazing. 
This place is perfect for the parents to hold their children’s hands and enjoy family outing. It is the best place for dating, as well
All day from day to night~ Let’s enjoy in Spa Valley even during the winter!
