Photo Stop: Bukchon Hanok Village

Hanok. Ha-what? A traditional Korean house. Before leaving Seoul Guesthouse, where we stayed for two nights, we took a walk thru Bukchon hanok village, a stone's throw away from the guesthouse...okay, maybe a long and strong throw.

In the residential area, remember to keep voices down. In Bukchon, you will also find museums, workshops, galleries, and coffee shops. Learn more about Bukchon here.

Bukchon is located between the two palace complexes: Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. If you don't believe me and just have to see for yourself, here's a map of Bukchon.

While you're in the area, why don't you drop by:
Gyeongbokgung (palace)
Changdeokgung (palace)
Huwon (garden)
Changgyeonggung (palace)
Insadong (shopping)
Cheonggyecheon (stream)
