What you'll do

★Bukchon Hanok Village is on every guide book but in this tour, we'll take you on a 2 hours adventure to explore the hidden hanok village in Seoul that is often missed by travelers. ▶Hidden Hanok Village: Seochon Seochon is located in Jongno-gu, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Seoul. It resembles the old Seoul with hanoks (traditional Korean houses) along its many alleys. Interesting boutique shops, lovely cafes and art galleries have emerged over the years, making it a favourite place for leisure walk among the locals. 1. Sangchonjae We will start our journey at Sangchonjae, a hanok cultural space where we can admire ondol- Korea’s unique heating technology and Hangul- the Korean alphabet. 2. Suseongdong Then we will walk thourgh the hidden alley of Seochon until Suseongdong, a valley named for noisy water sound in Joseon Dynasty. The valley was loved by numerous poets and painters for its excellent scenery. Located at the foothill of Inwangsan Mountain, we'll enjoy amazing view of nature and Seoul's landmark- Namsan Tower. 3. Yi Sang-beom’s House The house is a typical urban Hanok composed of ㄱ-shape main building and ㅡ-shape servant’s house. We'll admire Korean painter Yi Sang-beom's beautiful paintings. The adventure continues with a walk in the maze of 600 hanok where we'll pass by many hidden cafes and boutiques, as well as the oldest bookstore in Seoul.
