My Revised Bucket List - Never Been To Before

A year and a half ago I wrote this bucket list of places I wanted to see in Korea before I left. Some were there just to fill it out if I am being totally honest (Seoraksan, DMZ, a few temples) and I can check Jeonju off the list.

With my time here now being counted in weekends, it is important to do anything that I haven't done yet. While I do believe that I will visit Korea again in the future, probably a few times, nothing is certain. So with that in mind here is an updated (and more realistic) bucket list:


Yeosu held EXPO a few years ago and today the remnants are still there. It also has a few temples and one of the old turtle ships used in the 16th century war with Japan. It also has ferry services to a few outlying islands. While the ferry to Geomundo would be cool, it is by no means 100% necessary. Still it would be a great three day weekend trip.


Boseong green tea fields are supposed to be spectacular, in spring anyway, and are accessed via Gwangju, one of the big 6 cities of Korea. It is also the only one of the big six that I have never been to (Seoul, Incheon, Busan, Daegu and Daejeon being the other five). Not that it is exactly a tourist city, but the museum is apparently fantastic and any big city is fun for a night or two.


A beach/outdoor area in the NE of the country. There is also an old North Korean submarine which shipwrecked in 1966. A direct (though 6 hour) train ride away. This'll be a summer trip for sure.

I feel I can do these three using a few of my remaining vacation days this spring/summer.
