Great for photos but other than that, not much to do as it's a residential area with a few converted to galleries or shops.

It was something nice to see. There’s not a whole lot to do here except to see the old traditional houses. It’s possible to do a “korean experience” here, but was too cold when we went so didn’t stay too long.

Worth a quick wander to see the old houses, and enjoy views of old-and-new side-by-side. Rather full of touristy shops though.

This is a very unique place to visit, but a little strange to be wandering in a neighbourhood and snapping pictures of actual peoples homes. Some are not too welcoming, but that is understanding. Be mindful and quiet as this is an actual community... Don't...More

You can walk on your own. The area is hilly so you will be going up and down stairs. Wear comfortable shoes.

I don't know there is a museum. But the whole area is good enough for you to spend a few hours there.
