This is a must visit place for someone visiting the city. Beautiful traditional architecture where you can probably shoot one of the best photos in the city. Don't forget to stay quiet as this is a residential area!

Lovely hanoks to admire but it’s good to be really quiet so as not to disturb the residents living there. If we put ourselves in the shoes of the residents we wouldn’t want our day to day life to be disturbed by tourists either.

Very interesting original buildings demonstrating the history and architecture, if you really look in detail some amazing artisan drawings and local needlework can be purchased

When visiting the Hanok Village, it is almost necessary to have a guide take you around! The hanok village is actually a residential neighborhood, and from what we learned, in recent years, the residents have not been happy with the increase in tourists visiting the...More

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighborhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side

You can walk on your own. The area is hilly so you will be going up and down stairs. Wear comfortable shoes.
