Daejeon – Asia’s Silicon Valley
Daejeon is the 5th largest city in South Korea, with a population of approximately 1.5 million. It is located about 50 min away by high speed train from the capital Seoul.
The city has been promoted as a city of science and education and is home to an astonishing collection of universities and research institutes conducting world-class research in the applied sciences from semiconductors to fusion technology and next-generation satellites. This is the reason why Daejeon has earned its name as Asia’s “Silicon Valley.”
Daejeon is surrounded by idyllic jade mountains peppered with ancient temples and Confucian pavilions. The city is generally considered the most livable and dynamic of Korea’s major cities. Traffic is quite reasonable, parks, rivers and museums are never more than a short ride away and one can get to Seoul in 50 minutes by train.
