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

Hi So Sun Jae Guesthouse at 74-11 Yulgok-ro, 1-gil, I am Mandy from Singapore. I will be staying in your hanok in 2 months time December 2017. I need to know, 'How's your Entrance Exterior Look Like beside the street '? As your Main Door is located and hidden in a narrow lane away from the street. As such, I need to know How's your Exterior Entrance Look Like before I can enter into this narrow lane to your Main Door. Is it the entrance is need to go inside a Shop or restaurant, so that I can reach the narrow lane to your main door? Can send me a photo of How's the entrance exterior look like? As such, easy for tourist to find Sosunjae. Does it has a Signboard with Sosunjae written in English not korean to guide tourist to the narrow lane? Appreciate you can kindly send me a photo of How the Exterior Entrance Beside the Street look like, before enter into the narrow lane that led to your Main Door. I already have photo of your Main Door. I need photo of the Entrance beside the street will do. A photo of Either is a shop, restaurant or a corner beside a street. Like this, I will be able to find it easily. Thank you very much. Looking forward to your reply soonest. Mandy
