The Guam Farm Stay Village is located near the city so it’s pretty convenient for tourists to visit. Nine rocks in the area resemble the back of a turtle so it’s referred to as “Guam.”–‘Gu’ means turtle and ‘Am’ means rock. Tourists can take part in planting various vegetable seeds, thinning out the apple trees, rice reaping, and pulling out beans. Guam farm is abounding in fruits, including apples, grapes, peaches, strawberries and chestnuts. Among the many hands-on programs, picking apples, chestnuts and tomatoes have become famous activities for tourists as well as the students in Daegu.
Luckily for us, strawberries were in season so we got to pick the sweetest and juiciest strawberries ever! I was eating all of ’em right after picking so it took me quite a long time to full up my container. I knew it wouldn’t be as fresh if I bring it home to Manila so I would always eat them every night in my hotel room as well. Haha! We then had the most amazing lunch at one of the restaurants in the village. We were lucky that we had a tour guide with us so she knew all the good places to go. See? I told you everything in Daegu is a hands-on experience! Stay tuned for more posts! I still have tons of stories to share.
