About Bukchon Hanok Village

Bukchon Hanok Village is a classic traditional residential area in Seoul. The houses are all perfectly preserved blue-spring houses of the Joseson era. In addition to traditional Hanok, Korean restaurants, hanbok stores, and traditional handicraft workshops, the area now includes a number of cafes, Western restaurants, clothing shops and galleries in traditional Korean houses. Visitors can choose to either visit the North Village, or stay in Hanok. The eight villages in Kitamura are a famous attraction in the Bukchon Hanok Village. These scenes highlight the architectural charm of the Hanok houses, some artistic and others rich in the flavor of the daily life of local residents.

    The Bukchon Hanok Village is located between two of the four palaces . a North South street divids the area . you are best to go on the west sidec. its the bigger area and more to see . You can get some great skyline views from this section. you can go to the east section but is smaller and not as interesting . so if you are short on time , just go to the West section . no noise is allowed is this area . photography is permitted . This is an active residential area .

    The Buichon Hanok Village is between two of the palaces in Seoul and is on the North side of the city . A main road going North to South seperates this village area into two sections. The larger section is on the west side of the road . the buildings in this area are very well maintained and are occupied by current residence people . There are signs every where telling you to keep you voices down. There are also monitors or helpers on the street to answer your questions or to help you with photos . The area is on a hill so it does give you good views of the Seoul Skyline.

    very nice residential area. the sign postings all over the structures remind you to be quiet but they do take away from the beauty of the area. it is on a hill so you can get views of the city. this area is divided by a north-south street. the area to the left is best. the area to the right is smaller and no need to go there as well .

    красивое место в традиционно корейском стиле, достаточно тихое, несмотря на толпы туристов. запутанные маленькие улочки, на которых, даже следуя указателям, непросто найти нужное место. есть обсерватория и какой-то музей, но я их так и не нашла. есть несколько лавочек с сувенирами, чем ближе к ханоку, тем цены выше, притом что товары абсолютно одинаковые. если прийти в ханбоке, наверно можно потратить пару часов на фотографии, но если как я, мимоходом, то не более 40 минут.

    The village of Hanwu, a North Korean village, was once inhabited by royalty and nobility during the Korean period. It is now a residential area with more than 900 houses. Take exit 2 or 3 of Anguo Station on Metro Line 3 and walk for 5-10 minutes. There are eight scenic spots in Beicun: 1. Panorama of Changde Palace, 2. Gongfang Street of Yuanxi Tung, 3. Area 11 of Jiahui Tung, 4. Hillside 31 of Jiahui Tung, 5. Jiahui Tung Hutong (Downhill), 6. Jiahui Tung Hutong (Uphill), 7. Jiahui Tung 31, 8. Shidai Street of Sanqing Tung. It is suggested that you can look for these eight scenic spots while walking around Hanwu. In Jing 1, you can see Changde Palace; Jing 5 (see Figure 6) climbing up the slope is Jing 6 (see Figure 7), you can see the Seoul Tower on the distant south hill; Jing 8, you can see Jingfu Palace, from Jing 8 to the north is Sanqingdong Street. There are some experience items in Beicun. Some tours require extra fees. It is recommended that you rent Korean clothes to take photos. Seoul is not big. There are many scenic spots near Hanwu Village, North Village.

    North Village, Hanwu Village. Before making the strategy, more suggestions are that if you start at 8AM in the morning, you can first get to Jingfu Palace and Guanghua Gate, then walk along the city wall to Sanqing Cave, then go up Xiaopo to North Village and Korea House Village, and then go to Rensi Cave, that is to say, you can finish visiting these five scenic spots in a day. If we want to have leisure seriously, we only need to visit Jingfu Palace, Sanqingdong, North Village and Hanwu Village, while we only visit the back two. The eight sceneries in Beicun are the eight most representative sceneries selected by Seoul in 2008. When I arrived personally, I found that the distribution of these eight sceneries was quite confusing. I didn't need to find them everywhere. In addition to highlighting the charm of the Korean House itself, the Korean House in North Village now reflects the artistic atmosphere in which the workshops gather and emphasizes the Daily interests of the surrounding residents. It takes about 2-2.5 hours to walk through eight scenic spots, and it takes about 2 hours to roam around.

    Maps are important. It is suggested to walk out of the subway station for 10 minutes and arrive at Beicun Cultural Center first. Beicun Cultural Center provides free Chinese materials, as well as volunteers with red hats who speak Mandarin. Kongwu Village is a 600-year-old traditional Korean residential area in Seoul. Since ancient times, it has been composed of Yuanxi Cave, Qidong Cave, Guidong Cave, Jiahui Cave and Sanqing Cave. At that time, it was a high-ranking residential area inhabited by high-ranking officials or nobles of the Royal family, so it was very famous. The houses inside are mostly the blue tiled houses of the Korean era, which have been preserved as the structural form of the upper stratum up to now. Beicun has eight famous sceneries. Don't look for it deliberately. It just happens. Eight scenes we did not deliberately look for so did not see the whole, really no harm. The roads here are tortuous, densely interwoven and interconnected. Looking up and turning around, beautiful scenery can be seen everywhere. Many ancient buildings are used as museums, experience rooms for traditional crafts, cafes, boutiques, galleries, restaurants... All kinds of shops are scattered in this area. Most of the stores are very small, some can only accommodate 2-3 guests. The ups and downs of Beicun require some physical strength, and it takes at least 2 hours to complete the tour.

    No. 5 of Anguo Road on Line 3 comes out and goes back to the intersection, crosses the street, goes straight through the courthouse with gendarmerie guard and goes forward. A decorative cherry tree lane appears on the left hand side. Along the slope of this lane, you can walk to Beicun 11th Street, which is a residential area. There are several buildings which gather the essence. Because of the residence, you can't make a noise loudly. Residents here are residents. Vehicle skills are so steep up and down the slope road, see also want to pinch sweat for them, here are several parallel slope roads on both sides of the house can pick a few places to take photos, along the slope road to the left along the sign walk can see a stone step road, along the stone step road to the following TERRACE cafe area is the well-known Sanqing Cave Street, do not worry about not find the direction. There are many volunteers who wear red clothes and speak different languages on this road. I am lucky to have the help of two of them. One of them is a Chinese speaker who will show me the way when I go to Huihua Station. On my return trip, a German speaker who happens to be a Chinese speaker tells me how to transfer from Line 3 to Line 4 to the Pear Flower Mural Village in Huihua Station. With their enthusiastic help, I feel friendly and convenient. I have a better impression of Seoul. Beicun is a place worth visiting.
