You can see some nice traditional streets and houses (hanoks), but it can be a pain to find them. The so-called "observatory" is just a small top-floor apartment where you are asked to pay to enter - however the old lady is kind and gives...More

You can walk on your own. The area is hilly so you will be going up and down stairs. Wear comfortable shoes.
