Sometimes it is good to escape the Daejeon bubble and head up to Seoul. But last weekend, I decided to go even farther north. In my case, I literally went as far north as I can possibly go.

Just a short jaunt from my favorite area of Seoul, Insadong, is a neighborhood that's vying for the number two spot. Nestled between two palaces and overlooking hip Samcheongdong is the Bukchon Hanok Village -- narrow winding streets flanked with gorgeous hanok houses. I've taken a stroll through this neighborhood several times now and it just never gets old.
