A nice place to see because it is surrounded by high rise building. Hanok village is a traditional korean house. You can feel korean tradition in this place.

This showcase village depicts ancient korean life with mannequins in an old setting. It's free admission but the entrance is a bit difficult to find. We stumbled upon it.

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.
