Bukchon Hanok Village is basically a residence area with many house are still in traditional shape of house. It was very lovely to walk around here especially in the morning since there weren’t many people yet. But tourists are not allowed to get by in loud noise since it could disturb the resident.

We stopped by at one of the house that was opened for public because they use their house as a private observatory. We paid the ticket to the owner of the house and we could enter the house and got a drink. The grandma, who was the owner of the house, was really nice.

After walking around the area of Bukchon Hanok Village, we walked to Gyeongbokgung Palace, which was kind of near from Bukchon Hanok Village. The street that we passed by was so lovely and quiet. There were also many tourists that dress up in Hanbok and walked to Gyeongbokgung Palace.
