It was a cold day when we took a walk in the Bukchon Hanok 'village', where there are many rebuilt houses in the traditional style. Go prepared with good walking shoes so that you can enjoy the stroll. There are ample opportunities to snack and enjoy hot drinks. Thankfully the residents do not seem to mind us tourist taking photos... More
Tourists who look like ethnic Chinese should be wary when walking along the narrow roads and taking photos. Some of the resident simply hate Chinese tourists and will abuse you and force you to delete the photos they claim should not be taken as Bukchon is not a public area. That was the experience of our group of 10 people... More
We did not spend much time here but I did manage to walk around the alleys and take lots of pictures of the old Korean styled houses. It is nice to find history so well preserved here and there are lots of small restaurants in the periphery if you want to grab something to eat whilst walking around. I was... More
This is a neighborhood near the 2 palaces (Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung) where sometimes houses of nobleman existed during Yi Dynasty. A lot of the traditional houses have been converted, but half or so houses still keep the traditional old flavor (and now they are unable to take them down and build modern structures). This is an area where you can... More

Recreating village like from long ago is the general idea. Individual "workshops" are really independent businesses which charge for entrance and for activities. Posted opening hours are widely ignored if there are not many tourists in town.
This is a place where someone should not miss if you want to feel like coming to korea. When we venture along the village streets, we could enjoy the Korean traditional houses closely. Streets are clean and quiet and we enjoy the serenity.
Read ten things one must do when i am in korea!!! So went with low expectation with tourist trap mindset. But what a lovely surprise. I loved the small shops, and restaurants, loved the tourist shops, and loved that every corner was a surprise. I walked for hours and had a most wonderful time. The shops were so amazing and... More
Although it did make for a good walk around to explore, I always all that amazed by the hanoks themselves. Lots were new, and some were still being constructed. I didn't feel very much like I was "back in history" like many others claim. Different experience for everyone I guess, just not a great one for me.
