Bukchon Hanok Village

This is a dream come true! Walking in the village made me feel like I’m inside a Koreanovela.
Bukchon Hanok Village is an actual residential area, The gate that you see at the background is a part of someone’s house. Just like in Korean movies! 🙂
There’s a dozen of workshops in Hanok Village where you can experience their culture. Unfortunately 50% of them are closed on Mondays. Most of them don’t allow taking pictures during the workshop. I just took a snapshot outside the workshop area.
I also visited some museums. Some museums showcase the tradition Korean culture like Gahoe museum,  Han Sangsu Embroidery Museum, the Museum of Korean art and many more.
I wasn’t able to take much pictures because my phone died. Good thing, there’s an observatory nearby which offers some hot beverages like coffee, tea, and cocoa. I was able to charge my phone while enjoying the view of the Bukchon Hanok Village. I’ll definitely go back there on Spring. I don’t recommend the winter season because my fingers (even with gloves on) are freezing while walking in the village.  I’ll update this blog on spring. 🙂

 *UPDATE*

As promised, I went back there last spring and summer!

I found a friend who lives in Bukchon Hanok Village. I enjoyed having photoshoots on my way to her house.
