    Default 10 Destinations in Asia for Your 2018 Bucket List

    Lonely Planet unveiled its list of Asia's Top 10 destinations for 2018. Take a look at the countries and cities you may need to add to your bucket list this year.

    South Korea's Busan tops the list. Seoul seems to be losing its popularity, making way for this large port city, known for its beaches and temples.

    Go there for the stunning mosques, mausoleums and the references you will find to the Silk Road, the ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean. The food here is worth a try, and so are the ancient cities.

    Commonly known as Saigon, it has a rich history -- this city in southern Vietnam was famous for the pivotal role it played in the Vietnam War. Don't miss the French colonial landmarks when you are there

    When one thinks of Nagasaki, it's difficult to not think of the bombing. But once you brush past those memories, you'll discover a destination worth visiting for its museum, oldest church, hiking routes and volcanic hills.
