Samcheongdong is a hilly neighborhood that borders Gyeongbokgung to the south and Cheong Wa Dae (the presidential residence) to the west.  It is populated with artsy cafes and some of Seoul’s best restaurants.  There is also a charming park that can be found just east of the main thoroughfare.  My favorite spot for ice cream-covered waffles is at the very end of the road, to the left.
