Leaving the hubbub of the commercial streets with non-descript stores, these old-style houses (either well renovated or rebuild in old style) are a pleasure. Yes, it is commercial, yes, there are some kitschy souvenirs - but I also found a print artist, a small soup...More

Very charming hanok houses, lots of cafes and restaurants, unfortunately most were closed (we went on a Tuesday). But the stroll is nice and right beside you have the amazing bridge.

If you don't have the time to visit Yangdong hanok village you can have a hint at Gyochon. You have some craft also.

A small neighbourhood where various traditional houses were converted to shops, cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops. Quite an enjoyable place to explore as there are different things for you to do. There is also a preserved old house for visitors to see how it used...More

We visited on a weekend, and it was very crowded. Lines at some of the better known stores where they sell traditional Korean food. Nice traditional homes as well, and a few where we can visit. A good way to spend an hour or two.
