One of the Daejeon’s must-see locations is Daedong Sky Park. This park is located on the top of a small mountain. Because of that, it is the perfect spot for couples to enjoy a city view of the sunset. Since Korea is entering its Spring season with nice weather, this place is perfect for you to plan your date with your significant other 😉
The Wonders of Daedong Sky Park
Daedong Sky Park is located on top of a mountain next to Woosong University Eastern Campus.
Entering the park to get to the top of the mountain is a bit tricky. There are two ways to get to the top of the mountain. The first way is for you to enter the park through the valley on the mountain. The second way to enter the park is to take the stairs and cross over the bridge that is located in between the park and the campus. Refer to the picture for more information. The Red circle is where the bridge area is. The bridge is located above the street.
In the park, there is a red lighthouse with pretty architecture and numerous scribbles on the wall inside. There is also a painting on the wall, which brings a very street vibe to the lighthouse. The lighthouse/windmill is an Instagramable place thanks to its prominent red color and interesting architecture.
Seating for a Picnic
Of course, when you climb to the top of the mountain, you will feel tired. Lucky for us, there are plenty of places for you to rest. There is a swing chair located on the lookout balcony. Plus, there are also cube chairs that are fixated around the place for you to sit down. The cube chairs will be lit up during the night with many colors such as red, blue, or pink.
In the back, there is a gazebo, which is perfect for couples or groups of friends to have a picnic. Thanks to the park’s many places to rest and sit down, it is a great place to pack up a lunch and enjoy the afternoon in nature.
Romantic Photo Spots
There is a side balcony that resembles the love locks feature in Seoul and France. Many couples left their lock there wishing that their relationship will last forever.
The park is pretty itself, but if you choose to go up through the valley ( the hard way), you give yourself a chance to explore the nice entrance of the park. There is a path that is lined with flowers in the spring and summer. This is perfect for a romantic picture.
Night view from Sky Park
This is definitely what has put this park on the mad. Most of the people coming to this park are coming to enjoy the view from the top of the mountain, aka the Sky Park. The view is magnificent. You can see the entirety of Daejeon from afar. This view is the best at night when the streets are swarmed with lights.
On the way to Sky Park, there are numerous remarkably pretty coffee shops for you to stop over and enjoy a cup of coffee with your lover. They are all aesthetic and beautiful for Instagram lovers.
Don’t worry if you do not have a girlfriend/boyfriend. You can totally enjoy this experience with your best friend!
