‘Natural Daegu’, the rising city of eco-tourism
The city of Daegu is celebrating ‘2020-the year of Tourism in Daegu and Gyeongbuk’ by creating the new brand ‘Natural Daegu’ to promote its tourism resources for domestic and international tourists. Natural Daegu is a part of Daegu‘s 3-culture (Gaya, Silla, and Confucianism) tourism development project that was first launched in 2017; the new brand aims to position the natural resources of Daegu as a tourism asset.
Daegu has been popular as the center of Korea’s modern arts and culture, and one of the best cities for lifestyle and urban tourism. For example, there are Kim Gwangseok-gil Street, decorated with murals that are dedicated to the songs and life of the late singer-songwriter Kim Gwangseok, along the actual street where he grew up, and Suseongmot Lake, where attractions such as yachts and Suseong Arte Land amusement park welcome visitors.
However, Daegu’s ecological abundance is also a must-see for tourists. At Palgongsan Mountain, there are cherry blossoms in the spring, fall foliage in the autumn, and snowscapes in the winter, presenting a magnificent view all year. At Biseulsan Mountain, one can view historic temples and monuments, rare wildflowers, and the panorama of Daegu’s scenic nature. The ancient tombs in Bullo-dong, where the large scaled tombs from the Three Kingdoms Period lay along the hills, are recommended for photo shoots. The sunset along the nearby tree line is a sight not to be missed.
Dalseong Marsh, known as “the cradle of ecological resources”, and the Hajungdo Islet on Geumhogang River, where one can enjoy seasonal wildflowers in the beautiful scenery, are also frequented by the tourist. There are many ecological tourism attractions that exhibit the harmony of culture and the nature, such as the beautifully designed ARC building, and Nakdonggang River Eco Tour paths, where one can learn and identify animals and plants that inhabit the river.
Landing directly to Daegu International Airport is the easiest way to get to Daegu.
There are many direct flights between Daegu and Taiwan, mainland China, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam and many other Asian regions; the flight takes only 2.5 hours from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport to Daegu.
Trendy urban scenery with the backdrop of pristine nature of Daegu, the city of ecological tourism, will present unforgettable experiences and relaxation.

Will Bagley to Receive Western Writers of America’s Owen Wister Award
Will Bagley, a journalist known for monumental nonfiction books about the Mormon West and overland trails, will receive the 2019 Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Contributions to Western Literature from Western Writers of America (WesternWriters.org).
Bagley will also be inducted into the Western Writers Hall of Fame, housed outside the McCracken Research Library at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyo.
“People either love or hate me,” said Bagley, who lives in Salt Lake City. “The Wister Award is an expression of affection from my WWA friends that is appreciated and humbling, for it calls to mind the words ‘I am not worthy!'”
The nonprofit guild’s highest honor will be presented during Western Writers of America’s convention June 19-22 in Tucson, Ariz.
Bagley is a three-time winner of WWA’s Spur Award for “Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Youngand the Massacre at Mountain Meadows”; “The Mormon Rebellion: America’s First Civil War, 1857-1858”; and “With Golden Visions Bright Before Them Trails to the Mining West, 1849–1852,” all published by the University of Oklahoma Press.
Bagley has also received the Western Heritage Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Caroline Bancroft History Prize. His books have also been honored by Westerners International, Utah Division of State History, Wyoming State Historical Society and the John Whitmer Historical Association.
“Will is not just a tenacious researcher, he is a brilliant writer,” WWA executive director Candy Moulton said. “His ‘Blood of the Prophets’ is a classic – impeccably researched and written with precision.”
Bagley’s other books include “South Pass: Gateway to a Continent” and “So Rugged and Mountainous: Blazing the Trails to Oregon and California, 1812–1848,” both Spur Award finalists.
Since the early 1950s, Western Writers of America has honored and promoted all forms of literature about the American West. Previous Owen Wister honorees include Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday; historians David Dary and Robert M. Utley; and best-selling novelists Rudolfo Anaya, Elmore Leonard, Tony Hillerman and Lucia St. Clair Robson.
The Wister Award is a bronze statue of a buffalo created especially for Western Writers of America by artist Robert Duffie.
