Also worth a visit in Jongno is the Bukchon Hanok Village, a historic neighborhood where Seoul’s wealthy and politically important families lived. About 900 traditional hanok houses still exist in what is now one of the city’s most picturesque neighborhoods. Korea’s current president lives in the Blue House, also found in Jongno. When the weather is nice, take a stroll along the recently renovated Cheonggyecheon river walk for some fresh air and people watching.
