Bukchon Hanok Village
Catch a glimpse of ancient Seoul with a jaunt to Bukchon Hanok Village. This historic, hilly neighborhood lies between the palace walls of Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. It consists of over 800 hanoks, traditional one-level homes with tiled pagoda roofs. Many of them still function as residence quarters, which is why reminders to stay quiet are posted everywhere. Not only is the 600-year old village beautiful, it offers some of the most stunning vantage points of Seoul. Stop at the tourist center a block from Exit 2 of Anguk Station for a free map of highlights and scenic walking routes. Admire Koreans donning traditional hanboks and get lost discovering cultural centers, folk art workshops, boutiques, and tea houses. For a deeper experience, guesthouse stays can be arranged through the Hanok Homestay Information Center.
