Bukchon Hanok amazed me everytime I went here. It gives me the feeling of being old in the city. Overall, Goblin Korean Drama locations is a must.

This road is located near the presidential office and prime minister's home. Therefore, it is completely safe with a lot of police. There are many Korean-Western fusion style cafe and restaurants. It is fun to walk through the streets and find neat gift shops.

This road has plenty of interesting looking shops, great cafes and restaurants and heaps of cool art galleries. It is close to Gyeongbokgung Palace and some tourists wander around here in their rental hanbok outfits. It's a very chilled place to spend a few hours.
