The area was fine... seemed to be a popular area for white collar lunch break. We just walked around and took in the hustle of resident life.

Korean travelers seemed to enjoy this the most. It was interesting to see the architecture, but it is a small area and is flooded with people. I feel sorry for the residents! If you only have a couple of days in Seoul, this should not...More

We walked here during our walkabout in the area. It is quite near Changdeokgung Palace. We arrived in the evening before it got dark. Even then, there were lots of tourists. As this was a residential area and people were still living here, there were...More

It is worth spending a few hours here meandering the small streets, and you get great views of Seoul in some spots. There are a few houses that are open to visitors, and there are interesting small shops running through the main commercial street.

This place is known for its traditional housing images of Korea. It is interesting to see and walk around because cars hardly go through there. The downside is all the tourists are also there like tour groups, families, friends, and couples all walking throughout. So...More

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
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

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