The view here is beautiful!
very nice residential area. the sign postings all over the structures remind you to be quiet but they do take away from the beauty of the area. it is on a hill so you can get views of the city. this area is divided by a north-south street. the area to the left is best. the area to the right is smaller and no need to go there as well .
If you want to experience with less people, I would reccomend the Gye-dong side rather than the Gahoe-dong side.
красивое место в традиционно корейском стиле, достаточно тихое, несмотря на толпы туристов. запутанные маленькие улочки, на которых, даже следуя указателям, непросто найти нужное место. есть обсерватория и какой-то музей, но я их так и не нашла. есть несколько лавочек с сувенирами, чем ближе к ханоку, тем цены выше, притом что товары абсолютно одинаковые. если прийти в ханбоке, наверно можно потратить пару часов на фотографии, но если как я, мимоходом, то не более 40 минут.
The Bukchon Hanok Village is located between two of the four palaces . a North South street divids the area . you are best to go on the west sidec. its the bigger area and more to see . You can get some great skyline views from this section. you can go to the east section but is smaller and not as interesting . so if you are short on time , just go to the West section . no noise is allowed is this area . photography is permitted . This is an active residential area .
easily accessible from metro Anguk on line 3, volunteers were there to give map and directions.Its pretty, its hilly, its was also very busy (on a thursday noon). The east part of it, is quieter with lots of good restaurants and shops. it can easily be combine with the visit of one of the palaces.
