The Lovely Bukchon Hanok Village

Another favorite tourist spot in Seoul - Bukchon Hanok Village.

While I planned for our itinerary, I made sure that we visit this wonderful place.

Bukchon Hanok Village is a Korean traditional village with a long history located between Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace and Jongmyo Royal Shrine. The traditional village is composed of lots of alleys, hanok[1] and is preserved to show a 600-year-old urban environment. Now it is used as a traditional culture center and hanok restaurant, allowing visitors to experience the atmosphere of the Joseon Dynasty. (Grabbed from

The area of Bukchon, which consists of neighborhoods: Wonseo-dong, Jae-dong, Gye-dong, Gahoe-dong and Insa-dong, was traditionally the residential quarter of high-ranking government officials and nobility during the Joseon Dynasty. It is located north of Cheonggye Stream and Jongno, hence named Bukchon, which means north village. (Grabbed from

Inspite of the very hot weather in Seoul, we truly enjoyed this place. Definitely a must-see!
