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.
Samcheongdong-gil-road is a balanced mix of both traditional & modern architecture. Peaceful street lined with cafes, museums, art galleries and antique shops. Each art gallery has its own unique architectural design. Walls have some interesting graffiti. Perfect place to take a stroll and enjoy a cup of coffee.
"Amazing and refreshing Gallery in a beautiful space."

Visited alone one morning, the whole experience, from the audio guide to the artworks themselves was really great. The space was really interesting and well designed. I find that sometimes Asian galleries can be a bit hit and miss, but this was a hit.
Staff were a bit cold, I put it down to being the only guy in Seoul...
This museum is for free and should not be overlooked if you are interested in history and culture. For granted, this was inhabited by a very rich person and does not symbolize how "people lived" in any way. I could just wander around and let my fantasy roam! I would love to recreate this style and house with its setup...
We came here for the dumplings and noodles and weren’t disappointed!
Conveniently located around the corner from the palace, large restaurant with super efficient service.
The menu is a tad limited as highlighted previously but for a quick filling meal it’s a great option (plus their kimchi is delicious!)
Local and delicious craft beer much needed on a hot afternoon, the owner is friendly and gave us nice tips for our trip in Seoul and great perspectives about the art scene in the city. Nicely located In the heart of bukchon. Loved the movie deco too.
The facade of the restaurant does not reflect the crowd-puller success it has in serving army stew in a huge pan of rice cakes and thick spicy sauce where you can add more optional ingredients. Depending on the number of people at your table, you choose the mains accordingly. The other sides are optional. The quantity was substantial for four...
This tea house is off the beaten path and a little hard to find, but worth the effort, even in the blazing hot temperature of 36 degrees Celsius.
The moment we stepped into the premises, the air-con offered welcome respite from the relentless heat. Better yet, the ambience and the quiet, unobtrusive, relaxing music playing in the background was balm...
We ordered one beef ribeyes (150 g), one pork belly (150 g), one pork collar (150 g) and 1 Bibibab; all foods were so good. We enjoyed the food so much, the atmosphere of the restaurant was friendly, and the staffs were very friendly and helpful.
