          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
