Bukchon Hanok Village Tours

Bukchon Hanok Village is a lovely residential neighborhood located between Gyeongbok and Changdeok Palaces, and is full of traditional hanok homes. It is a place that perfectly embodies the heritage and culture of South Korea.

Famous for once being the residences of high-ranking government officials, the village is now a peaceful destination for visitors looking to taking a stroll through its comforting alleyways and calm, picturesque scenery. Boasting more than 600 years of history, the village reflects that of the tranquil views and nature of neo-Confucianism.

It currently houses a museum and various craft shops tucked away in its back alleys, built in a uniform way where gardens meeting on adjacent properties seem to make the whole idea of property go away. Located just at the mouth of the village, the Bukchon Traditional Culture Center is a great place to get the low-down on not only the village itself, but its history and artist integrity, providing audiovisual materials and a shop.

Just a few steps away, the charming neighborhood of Samcheong-dong is the perfect place to stroll through while enjoying its unique shops, galleries and cafes.

Practical Info

You can get to the village by taking subway line number 3 to Anguk Station. Business hours for the cultural center exist throughout the entire week, year-round, from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. For a good place to eat some local cuisine or just enjoy the atmosphere of a nice bar, Samcheonggak offers both lunch and dinner menus from 12:00 until 10 pm. The venue is also known for its performance hall where you can check out some local acts.
