S.Korea, Seoul, Samcheong-dong, Buchon Hanok Village

Seoul, Samcheng-dong, Anguk Station (Line 3), exit 1

This is one beautiful part of Seoul that will simply take your breathe away. This hilly neighborhood is a hidden gem and is next to Changdeokgung and Gyeongbokgung. Within this neighborhood, you will visit the beautiful Bukchon Hanok Village, this is a residential area and within the residents, there are cafes, art galleries, designer shops, restaurants and offices. Many of these are restored hanok houses (traditional korean houses).

Coming to the village is not difficult, best time to visit the village is before noon and best is to travel by foot because some part of the village is narrow with small alleys. There are plenty of cafes and small eateries that local patronizes, do visit one of these cafes to enjoy a good cuppa.
