Bukchon Hanok Village

Local name북촌한옥마을
LocationSeoul, South Korea

If you want to experience the atmosphere of the Joseon dynasty, this place is a must-visit for you. It is located near the Gyeongbokgung Palace and throughout its existence, it was a neighbourhood popular among the aristocracy (and rich people in general). Its name translates as the “northern village” and it consists of many hanoks, traditional Korean houses.

There are many different attractions located in the area that you can visit (e.g. Unhyeongung – the palace, The Museum of Korean Buddhist Art or the Han Sangsoo Embroidery Workshop). For better navigation, you should consider getting a useful map in the Information Centre.

Also, since the complex is rather large, be sure to save enough time for the visit.
