Daejeon is the capital of Chungcheongnam-do, a province in central South Korea. The city is considered to be the science and technology hub of the country and is strategically located at the intersection of major roads and train tracks joining other cities in South Korea. Daejeon, though it is always seen as a financial city, it is also known for its fine traditions and culture. The city’s stocks as one of South Korea’s best destinations rose significantly in 1993 after an international exposition. The expo showed the world the innovative side of Daejeon with start-of-the-art pavilions, solar-powered vehicles, and a maglev train. The center of the event was the Expo Park, which is still dazzling to these days and linked to other parts of the city by the stunning Expo Bridge.
