Tour Highlights

Even for Seoul residents or natives, Bukchon Korean traditional house town makes them wonder that it stills exists and is part of Seoul. As you may know, Seoul is full of modern and hi-tech and no one expects an old traditional town in the middle of the city.

Bukchon Hanok village is the old town located between Gyeongbokgung palace and Jongmyo shrine and named as North village. It also has lower land in the south than in the north. This characteristic provides a great viewpoint where you can enjoy the landscape of Mt. Namsan and a forest of skyscrapers. This is the reason why noble families and high-ranking officials of the Josun dynasty lived in North village.

Bukchon is also a hanok (traditional house) concentrated area and its alleys wind and twist between the houses. The traditional houses stand close together roof by roof. Everyday life in Hanok takes place not only within the houses but also outside of houses in the alleys. In alleys, adults have friendly conversations and the elderly take a rest and converse among themselves.

There used to be only 30 traditional houses with black tile roofs left but people and government have tried to keep this town as original in form as possible so you can see how people used to live together for 600 years in the Chosun dynasty.

Bukchon is called "the street museum in the urban core" having many historical spots and cultural heritage sites of the 600-year-old history of Seoul.

For visitors, the alleys of Bukchon are an interesting window which exists into the ordinary lives of ordinary Koreans. We've traveled through life at high speed so far, so it's time to give your soul a moment of rest a with slow and peaceful walk in Bukchon Hanok Village.

There are 8 photo spots where you can take pictures from the 8 best photo angles of Bukchon, and you don't want to miss the Choongang High School which is well known for the Korean drama, "Winter Sonata," that Yong Jun Bae and Jiwoo Choi starred in.

What You Can Expect

You can learn how the king and family lived and governed the whole nation from the palace while you learn the noble life from the traditional village at Bukchon. Now everyone can buy and sell houses and live in Bukchon but it used to be only for the nobles. Seoul City tour 3 offers all palace and Bukchon tours and gives you a lot of insight on the Chosun dynasty and its nobles.

There is the large and modern Lotte department store and duty free shop which is located near the Palace and Bukchon. You can find not only luxury items with reasonable duty free prices but also a grocery market and great restaurants.

    The colour of Amethyst is as unique as it is seductive, though in fact this gemstone of all gemstones is said to protect its wearer against seduction. Korean Amethyst is extravagance in violet since it has been formed from granite stone base since 5000 years. Moses described it as a symbol of the Spirit of God in the official robes of the High Priest of the Jews, and the Russian Empress Catherine the Great sent thousands of miners into the Urals to look for it. It was said to protect crops against tempests and locusts, bring good fortune in war and in the hunt, drive out evil spirits and inspire the intellect.
