Bathhouse and Jjimjilbang reviews

Posted in Bathhouse, bathhouse and jjimjilbang culture by 노강호 on April 20, 2016

Reviews and info

I don’t intend this page to provide any more than brief information on my local amenities. I am too lazy to go further afield. Hence information, always changing and subjective by nature, is largely confined to Daegu and in particular, the Song-So area. When I use a facility I record basic details and perhaps some of my feelings towards the establishment. Remember, things change rapidly in Korea and even if an establishment remains around for any duration you can guarantee some features have changed.

I have provided a wikimapia link for most establishments.

If you are interested in the design of bathhouses I have a page with detailed plans that provides an easy means of comparison.

I notice on search results numerous inquiries into gay activity in bathhouse and jjimjilbangs, etc. I will add a note if I see anything but being useless at such behaviour and not even looking for it, my pages are not the place to look for such information.

Feel free to post any observations.

    Good day!

    Can you suggest which one among the jjimjilbangs is closest to Gimpo Int’l Airport? We will arrive from Incheon Int’l Airport at night and needs to leave early in the morning the next day and we’re hoping to just stay in Jjimjilbang for a bit.

    Thank you

      I went onto google street map and tried to locate one but couldn’t. However, you could pick up a taxi at Kimpo, it is a small airport in the town and you can actually walk from the exit area, cross the road and you are in town. Tax’s will be all over the place. Hail one, and ask for a jimjillbang. Korean taxis are cheap and the driver 99.9% of the time honest and they will take you to the nearest. You could write it on paper and hand it to them (‘we want to go the the nearest 24 hour jimjjilbang). You could ask the airport information desk in foyer to help you. I did find some health clubs in area,two were 24 hour and these often have a jimjjilbang but I wasn’t able to read the small details. You will find taxi’s at night, especially as it is an airport. If you need help with translation let me know.
