After our late lunch at Tosokchon we headed out to see the Bukchon Hanok Village. We rode the bus even if it was kinda near if your a walker but if not I suggest you take the bus. The Bukchon Hanok Village is on the other side of the palace where Tosokchon is located. We got off at Samcheongdong. Samcheongdong is full of art galleries and cafes. We walked around and enjoyed every single concepts of stores they have there. A hip place for the everyone to appreciate.
a quick story about this part of our trip. We got lost from looking around. luckily we saw fellow Filipinos walking around and asked where is the way to Bukchon Hanok Village.
Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty.
The name Bukchon, which literally translates to “northern village,” came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture.
