It was a nice leisurely walk we took but everywhere around the village are signs to reject tourists and signs to say keep quiet. There are residents residing in the hanoks and i think tourists are really a bother to them. So try to keep...More

Definitely worth stayin here at a traditional Hanok. It’s worth the experience. The hanok cultural centre is very informative and the manager there was quite enthusiastic

Small remnants of a village can be found here in the center of Seoul. Try to have a Seoul map with you because korean people are not able to speak even a little english but they are extremely kind and polite.

Although it was nice to see the village and the houses, I personally didn't think it was a must see or do. If you have a limited amount of time in Seoul then you can skip this village. It's just a bunch of traditional houses...More

Typical old village with ancient houses, not many activities to do here. The view is also not really impressive. Can skip if you don't have enough time

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.
