Well worth a walk around this area. As people live there, you must be quiet. Really liked the architecture. Easy to find.

My friends and I visited Bukchon Hanok Village last year. The place is so picturesque. Of course by wearing the Korean traditional hanbok, we can blend in with area well 😊

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

You can walk on your own. The area is hilly so you will be going up and down stairs. Wear comfortable shoes.
