Right off of Daegu’s downtown shopping district is Oriental Medicine Street. If you need ginseng tea or powdered deer antler, you’re in the right place.
Further down the street is a museum/functioning medicine market.
And the best thing about Medicine Street? The aroma — even in winter you can smell the various herbs and barks and nuts and roots drying in the afternoon sun.
And for some reason, a high-end rice cake shop is also available.
Definitely a must-see in lovely downtown Daegu.
