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 streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.
Take subway to Anguk, setting is restful. Museum spreads to outside. Exhibitions, installations are huge, well displayed! I had lovely inexpensive meal at canteen. Then bought lots of gifts in Gallery. Outdoor have been there longer. Believe there is bus to visit another branch of this esteemed museum?
You can explore the boutiques, shops and galleries to or on your way back from Bakchon Village. Certainly a great place to take a break or have a meal at one of the many restaurant offerings. Interesting stores that offer traditional Korean hanbok rentals for those who want to take advantage of photo ops while visiting Bakchon Village. Overall, just...
Interesting modern art museum in an interesting building. The installations make excellent use of the space - for example bathroom themes in old bathrooms- and fit well. Watch your head - some of the ceilings are low.
Eat at the coffee shop next door and get a discount on admission.
This is a small museum mansion. Built in 1913 by a pro-Japanese business tycoon, later bought by several people and in the end bought by Baek In Jae-an activist. The mansion has tatami room. Worth a visit.
If you opt for trying something local, this traditional tea house is for you.
It's a traditional Korean house, with great mountain view. The tea house is easily accessible.
It got a great variety of local tea to choose. The choices of local snack looks limited, but it's enough for a tourist to try out some traditional snacks.
I went here with a friend of mine for lunch after touring the G-palace. It is in easy walking distance and the dumplings were awesome!!! The price was fair and I would definitely recommend it for lunch if you are near the G-palace but offer two caveats: 1. Be prepared to stand in line for a bit (which isn’t real...
Ate here our first night in Seoul, based on TR reviews, and were not disappointed. Had no idea what to expect but it was a good way to enjoy some 'dinner theatre' of the cooking process and be introduced to some of the many banchan dishes that are ubiquitous at every Korean meal. Delicious and a great cultural experience.
