There’s not much here to see. It’s worth a 30 minute visit if you’re in the area. There is one street where you can take a picture.

Step back into time, the architecture in this village is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The streets are a little bit hilly so I don't recommend going here in the summer like I did, it was super hot.

Bukchon which means "Northern Village" is found north of two famous landmarks in Seoul, Cheonggyecheon stream and Jongno. The Palaces surround this village (Gyeongbokgung, Changdeokgung and Jongno Shrine). In this village, you would be able to admire hundreds of Koreas traditional houses, called Hanoks. Aside...More

It was fun to walk around this neighborhood, but I felt kind of guilty that people live there and have to post signs telling others to be quiet. They post it in English and what I guessed was Korean. Tourists from other parts of the...More

I don’t regret going, but it was a waste of time. There really isn’t much to see or do, and the people living in the village are very vocal as to how much they hate that you are there. In prominent display are signs specifically...More

This is a hilly part of Seoul amidst two royal palaces. Clean and safe but seems that - according to many notes on houses - the residents do not feel very happy about the many and loud tourists.

This is a really large area and we had the pleasure to have a private guide showing us around! The village itself was "closed" this day refering to "tourist-hours" and it felt calm and serene :). Take your time, it is quite a bit of...More

This historic neighbourhood 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.
