Its a traditional village architecture in the middle of seoul. Interesting architecture & good for great picture. Walking thru the place makes me feel like walking thru the old days of Korea. Its not easy to take great nice picture due to the people walking thru the alley.

You need to walk up the hill thru the alley with 3 kids. Tiring but its worth it. There're some shops, cafe's at the end of the alley where you can clear the thirst. We found 2 tourism representative where you can get pamphlet & info's with regards to the place.

Village with some restaurants, small shops, and private homes built in a traditional style.

Prepare to do LOTS of walking. Good for people who have have plenty of time to spend in Seoul. If not, you can skip this place. It was just okay.

I would suggest walking the neighborhood. The place reminds me of the old Seoul that I used to know as a child. There are a few restaurants around here but nothing special.

The little alleyways full of traditional workshops and homes are beautiful, and this is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of nearby Jongno and Insadong.

This is my second visit here (my 1st was in September 2012), and this time I made sure I covered the area (see my earlier review). I think September is a better time (maybe even October) because one gets to see the greens turning colors with the autumn coming. Last year I even spotted a pear tree. Make sure to come in the morning when the sun is not so high up because it sure gets hot when you walk around admiring the houses in the quite hilly area, houses that have been maintained and live in. Get the map from the tourist information center as you walk from the metro exit towards the Bukchon area. You will also be informed of the house number where Korean dramas have been filmed i.e Lee Min Ho in Personal Taste and Jung Yong Hwa in Heartstring - just the outside people:(
