Have you ever heard about “hanoks”? If not, Bukchon is the best place to discover them. It’s a bit of an artifact place but it gives you the idea about the Korean traditional houses.

This place is nice. You can get a feel for the old Korean way of living. It’s also fascinating to think that people actually live there, so don’t be noisy just take a lot of pictures and enjoy the ambiance.

A district with the largest number of traditional Korean houses. The houses are kept in good conditions and some are opened to public. Traditional Korean costumes can be hired from the shops for photo-taking on the streets and inside the houses. A reminder for visitors to avoid disturbing the residents there.

You can see the beauty of Hanok, a traditional Korean house. At the same time you can see the current view of Seoul. You have to walk a lot to get here, so wear sneakers. One thing to be careful about is that Hanok has real residents, so try not to make noise. After visiting this place, visit Changdeokgung Palace next to it. You will be able to feel the beauty of Korea more.

You can get to Bukchon Hanok village from Anguk station. It’s a traditional korean village from 600 years ago located on top of a hill between two palaces. Here you'll find lots of alleys, Tea houses, cafes and guesthouses. There're not just teahouses, museums and such, it's good to keep that in mind and be respectful while exploring this area. Great spot for nice pictures.

We went to the village after a trip to the North Seoul Tower. The village is a lovely little haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We were there as the sun was going down and darkness fell and it was lovely and quiet. A must see in Seoul amongst many others. A wonderful city.

Bukchon is a beautiful, elegant neighborhood in Seoul. The houses preserve traditional architecture. Roofs are beautiful. Many wealthy Koreans, some of all tradition, live here. The place is quite exclusive. Shops are elegant, casual, eclectic. The aromas, the colors, the essences, the past just invade your senses.

There are wonderful coffee shops and if lucky you may find the cast of Korean soap operas filming in some of these houses!. They do not interfere with your visit.

It is free to visit. It is close to the main palace. Walking distance. Choose a day with good weather to visit. Everything is outdoors.

This area is so beautiful. Perfect for taking loads of pictures while wearing hanbok. The only thing is you need to keep quiet and do not make loud noice as there are people still living in it. Please respect the locals.
