Very traditional houses surround this area. Take 1-2 hours waking around here without any destination. Enjoy the houses and atmosphere here. 這個地方有很多傳統的房屋。 花個一到兩個小時在這邊沒有目的地與目的性地亂走, 好好享受這邊的房屋與氛圍。

Nothing much to explore here imo as everywhere sells basically the same things. All you could do there is to take pictures and enjoy the building styles?

Lovely charming village with lots of photo opportunities. Bring you away from the city of Seoul back to the old traditional houses of Seoul. Very residential, thus should be sensitive of one's surroundings when walking around. First stop - go the Bukchon Traditional Cultural Centre...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.
