Daegu in top 10 places to visit (2011)

I have just come across a Rough Guides list of the top 10 places to visit in 2011. And Daegu is on it. Of course the list contains places a little out of the ordinary and off track with none of the usual suspects being mentioned. There have been a lot of changes in parts of Daegu since I arrived here and most of them are certainly for the better. It is an improving city and will host the 2011 athletics World Championships so is hoping to attract more people to the area.

I have lived here and worked here for about five years so I am happy with the place and feel comfortable. My wife and her family are from here too so that's another reason to like here. This city has given me a lot to be thankful for. But, I would struggle to recommend it to a visitor no matter how much I like it because there is little to do and little to see when you consider other places in Korea and of course other countries just a few hours away. Perhaps I am missing something.

I think Daegu's description is a little over the top. It does not compete with the likes of Seoul when it comes to food. I think the Korean food here is great but everything else is average. Daegu is a great city for living, not so much for visiting.

Daegu is not a tourist destination. You know that and I know that. I'm not knocking Korea or Daegu because I'm living here happily but it lacks culture and things to do. Busan is a much better place for a visitor in my opinion
