Daejon
The Essential

Don't let yourself be overwhelmed by the incessant hubbub of Daejon, the crossroads and scientific hub of South Korea. Take time out in one of the city's havens, such as Ungno Lee Museum of Art or Hangbat Arboretum. Don't miss the Fractal Turtle Ship in the Daejon Municipal Museum of Arts, an installation by Paik Nam-jun (1932-2006), founder of video art; the installation features an incredible hotchpotch of everyday objects displayed in unusual volumes.
