Jeonju Named Among Asia's Top 10 Destinations

The heritage town of Jeonju in North Jeolla Province has made a Lonely Planet list of Asia's 10 best places to visit in the next 12 months, source from Chosun.

Japan's Hokkaido topped the list, followed by Shanghai and Jeonju.

"In the middle of Jeonju is one of Korea's best-preserved traditional villages," said the travel guide. "The birthplace of Korea's most famous dish, bibimbap -- an arrangement of vegetables on rice, topped Jeonju-style with bean sprouts, mung bean jelly and beef tartar -- now lures a younger crowd thanks to its fast-emerging street food scene."

Other reasons to put the southwestern city on a traveler's "bucket list" include Jaman Village with its colorful murals and makgeolli or traditional rice wine.
