Sublocality
“This quaint, traditional hillside neighborhood in northern Seoul is filled with the curved roofs and Zen-like lines of hanok, traditional houses that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. Many of the dwellings in Bukchon Hanok Village have been converted to guesthouses, teashops, or restaurants, and some are cultural centers offering traditional Korean activities such as calligraphy or knot tying. The juxtaposition between old and new here is notable, as the narrow alleys open onto views of the sprawling, futuristic metropolis below.”
