If you never been to a traditional Korean "village" this is a place for you! The village is not far, and when you walk in you feel this is very different from the city - you can see the old architecture, building, culture. If you...More

Strolling through the neighborhood on a Sunday, when lots of Koreans are in traditional dress, is fun. But having informaiton about what to see, provided by the Visitor Center, would make the visit even better. So don't plan to go on Sunday!

Good for a quick visit and to see genuine hanok houses that people still live in. Close to palaces so can wander through the village on the way to or from them.

We use Google maps to find this place. We walk along the road of some of Hanok village but some of it has been modernise. Definitely will go again to find the right place.

The tourist infomation centres can provide maps to the more photogenic parts of the village. We also noticed map stands placed at various locations within the village. The tourists were out in force on the most photogenic street. Nearly every door and every wall had...More

Probably worth visiting once but not as good as the traditional streets in Kyoto, Japan. Many resturants.

It's ok. A bit overrated I think. Wear the tradition clothing will make the experience a lot nicer! It's a bit hard to find if no maps or wifi... but sure u can experience the local atmosphere herex

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.
