We enjoyed taking the walking tour through Bukchon. The walk goes up into the hills a bit and can be steep in some places (kind of uncomfortable in hot weather!) but you will wander along some beautiful and photogenic streets and see gorgeous hanoks. The...More

Warning: Bad English! Bukchon is the perfect area to explore real Korean culture in the city center. Though this area is very touristy but still a quick way to observe the real Korean while enjoying shopping and eating. Go to the tourist information center and...More

It's an old traditional Korean village. Some/most parts are private. It's a long stretch and will take an hour walk to finish. A lot of stores you can see along the way too. Wear comfy shoes and clothes!

This area of traditional hanok houses - and new ones being built - is full of arty crafty workshops and tourists dressed in hanbok having their photos taken. It's a pleasure to wander round the lanes imagining a less frantic way of life, if you...More

Picturesque, charming, hilly, rustic, stone and earth dwellings. A look backward to the traditional homes of the elite. Also, museums, galleries, cafes, traditional Hanok houses. If you make it to the top, I have been told, the view is spectacular. My bum knee kept me...More

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
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

I don't know there is a museum. But the whole area is good enough for you to spend a few hours there.
Where can I find the 8 photo spots? Thanks. We'll be visiting this tomorrow. Thanks.
