“its cool if you're in the area”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

if you happen to be in the area, than check it out. the nearby temples are worthwhile, but to make a specific trip here, is not worthwhile. small area, not very large, and its just a small area which is a quaint "hold" street. there is also an old school library/education center nearby

“history of old style Korean house”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

actually, lots of this area is private are which is owned by citizen. but the government opens for public as a tourist destination. so, they suggest you not to make noisy sounds.
you can see the typical of old style Korean house. my friend who was my guide said that this area is quite expensive. so, all the house might have expensive price.
don't forget to take a map at the tourist information, because they give a direction how to explore this place. only few place in the Bukchon that have free entrance. if you want to see inside the house, you have to pay 10.000 won. if you want see all around Bukchon from 3rd fl., you have to pay also (but i forgot how much is it). i've found nothing special in here, just to improve knowledge about the Korean tradition.
Bukchon is very near to Gyeongbokgung. so, after visit Gyeongbokgung, try to walk to find Bukchon.

“Super beautiful village”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Super beautiful, recommend you to take a walk during evening and sit somewhere near the observatory to chill. There is one famous local noodle shop - 手撕面 (in chinese), it costs about 7000 won for one set. It is super good.

“Historic place to visit”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Great place to spend a few hours wandering the streets of Bukchon. Loved seeing the old traditional houses in Seoul. The area has guided maps along the way as well as Korean guides which speak a variety of languages which are very helpful (look for the people in the red vests - languages they speak are written on their back).

“Nice, but too crowded”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

It's actually a bit over-rated because the place is swarming with tourists, particularly the two main streets with the old hanok houses. Some of the teahouses are nice but overpriced. The walk through Samcheongdong and into Bukchon is nice though.
