A bustling city of over 200,000 people, it consists of a huge primarily industrial district to the Southeast and a smaller residential and commercial district to the Northwest. The two areas are separated by the expressway.
Nearest airport is in Daegu
Train runs right through here. A huge new train station being built (as of 2005) downtown.
A transportation hub for the region. Buses often stop here rather than in Daegu. From here you can get buses to several of the Daegu bus terminals.
Right along the main expressway between Seoul and Pusan.
Go out of the train station and turn left. The shijang is across the main street a couple blocks on. It's big and with quite a few restaurants.
E-Mart is down across the freeway in the industrial side of town. Seems to be a new Lotte Mart being installed in the same area.
