I have a plan to go on a trip to one of the asia countries this summer.I read the news about Bucketlist (the places we should go to before we die).Many famous spots were listed on it and I was trying to find if there are any asia places listed. but I found only one. Korea Changdeok secret garden that is the only asia spot that I found on top 7 spots. actually, I don't know Korea well. because it's my first trip to asia. but I felt to go there once, seeing various photos about that place. that place is like a secret garden available royal family(Chosun dynasty's) and veryconvenient for travelers because it is located in the central area of capital city-Korea seoul. that place is likely to be very quite surrounded by a dense forest & flowers and has ponds & rest areas. people who have been to there said, it has preserved the oriental atmosphere for 500 years and can feel mysterious. I like mysterious things and ambience. so, I decided to put it on my travel plan. I attached garden's photos. if you have a plan to go to asia, I think, you may as well consider that place to go once during the asia trip.

I found Seoul in general to be a place where it is very easy to find quiet and peaceful surroundings. Mostly just on residential streets, even near the center of the city.

Ive seen 11 of the places on this list of 28

and most, I was not particularly awestruck by.

But I think that is a hokey list, because they identified 7 categories of attractions, and then selected four from each group.
