Daegu, South Korea's fourth-largest city, is a polluted industrial center 150 mi/240 km southeast of Seoul. It doesn't really merit a visit, but if you find yourself there, allow a half-day to shop and to visit Dalseong Park and Suseong Lake.
About 14 mi/22 km north is the fifth-century Donghwa Temple, which has an impressive gate. Many local residents climb Gatbawi Peak in Palgongsan Provincial Park to see its stone Buddha, which is rumored to grant visitors' wishes.
