Bukchon Hanok Village is Seoul’s famous place of interest, but really is a building complex of ancient Korean constructions. Close to the famous Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village (which means “North Village”) has many inhabitants, and conceals a bunch of modern buildings on the inside. By coincidence when we visited we bumped into Korean cast and crew filming a soap opera, which is really fortunate, because anything might happen. That is to say, looking around the best parts of Bukchon Hanok Village was not possible. But the good thing is the weather was great, and Bukchon was not crowded.
Here the buildings had a fascinating ancient appearance and the streets were peaceful; from time to time Korean floated out from amongst the houses, though of course were unable to understand it. These old buildings were in an excellent state of repair, not a brick out of place and even the doors looked quite refined. Bukchon also had streets going up the slope or down the slope, and had some alleys that were quite deep.
On Bukchon street I went to a Korean Clothes Store, with Morandi colors that are quite in fashion. My intention was to rent a suit, but the proprietor said they only sell, and do not rent. I could not refuse this kind suggestion from the female owner.

Bukchon - Northwest Village Romantic Tour, 60 minutes (basic) / 30 per person
Seoul Bukchon Hanok Village, eating and shopping
is located in Jongno-gu, Seoul, Jingdeokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, and Bukchon Hanok Village near Jongmyo. It is a 600-year-old traditional Korean residence. Area. In the Joseon era, it was the place where the royal family and the royal family lived; today it is still the most expensive area of Seoul. The most famous of the North Village is the eight scenes of the North Village, allowing you to travel through time and space for hundreds of years between the alleys and the antique blue houses. Walk along the alley to the heights of the North Village, and you can see the palace area next door, and the modern high-rise building, a little further away, Seoul Nanshan Tower. The perfect combination of modern and ancient, sometimes you will feel the unreality of some mirages.
What I want to say here is actually not the eight scenes of the North Village, but the various snacks in the Beicun alley. Since Bukchon is still a residential area, there are residents who live in the real price, so most restaurants and small shops are in the outer circle of Bukchon. If you are tired, you can buy something to eat first and then go. While walking and eating, while the village was finished, the stomach was filled. It is actually quite like Beijings Nanluoguxiang, but the classical architecture is wider. Those snack bars, in addition to the traditional Korean street food, there is a more modern cafe dessert shop, there is always a taste for you. That day we spent the whole afternoon shopping in the North Village, watching and eating. In addition to eating and enjoying the traditional cooking techniques of many craftsmen, it is also satisfied with the taste and the needs of humanities.
Bukchon's snacks are not completely introduced:
The cake made on the spot, it is hot in the cold winter;
hugely huge, crispy and tender inside the fried squid;
improved addition A lot of Churro Spanish fritters, this store IQ84 Churro is very hot and long, the speed of the guys can't keep up with the speed of everyone's rush to buy;
exquisite coffee shop sells Korean dessert, bean noodles with cream Vanilla ice cream. The potato is made from the soft and hot, and the bean noodles are so much better. Dig a piece of mochi and ice cream, and the taste of ice and fire is wonderful. This shop also has sesame-flavored mochi, we also tried it, but everyone agreed that the original taste of the bean noodles is better.
In addition, there are squid on the street, cola cakes of various flavors, caramel sweet potatoes... Its really drooling.
Friends who have time, in addition to visiting the North Village, eating snacks, you can also choose a traditional homestay to stay here, you can experience how the aristocrats lived hundreds of years ago.
