The moon house is a beautiful home in the heart of Seoul near a number of different tourist attractions such as a cathedral across the street as well as Unhyeongung palace. The house/room I stayed in was... More

My stay was very enjoyable. As an independent traveller it was good to be asked to participate in activities but not be expected to go. The building felt very authentic (which was my reason for staying), however i would suggest a few improvements. 1.

Neighbourhood Profile
Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean homes (called hanok), many of which are found in Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses, and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.
