  • Nestled between two major palaces, Bukchon was the settling place of the yangbans, or civil servants during the Joseon Dynasty. While the past neighborhood has witnessed changes and transformations...

  • Literally, a living historic village. Take a walk back in time and roam around the small short hills of this ancient village. There's this uncanny blend of current living with historic culture. Short walking distance away are the two largest palaces in Seoul. Several awesome cafes nearby as well.
  • I nice place to visit a short walk from Seoul Royal Palace (Gyeongbokgung). There isn’t much but still quite worth seeing. To get to the main photogenic spot keep walking straight into the alley from the map marker where you go quite a bit up hill. There’s also maps around the area that guide you though a route through multiple villages in the same area if you wish to see more. There’s a traditional dress (both men and women) rental shop down the road from the entrance to the alley which is quite a popular thing for tourists to do.
