Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을)

Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을)

Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을) is a home to hundreds of hanok, which also happened to be one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Seoul. I just love the aesthetics and the vibes of this neighbourhood. It's interesting to see how ancient times and modern times harmoniously intertwined. The only thing that I don't like about Bukchon Hanok Village is it's very hilly. #hellomynonexistencestamina

Steep tak steep?

Tip: Wear your most comfortable shoes as it's quite a walk and hike.

I went there in the morning to avoid the crowd. Thankfully, it was the best decision that I made as the neighbourhood started to get crowded after about an hour after I arrived. I honestly didn't do much at the Bukchon Hanok Village except walking around, taking hundred of pictures and enjoying the aesthetics of the neighbourhood.

Tip: Get a map from the Information Centre or do your proper research if you want to see all the 8 views of Bukchon Hanok Village.

You can do more than that as they have quite a number of cultural centres, museums, guesthouses, restaurants, and tea houses. Some of the cultural centres and museums offer free admissions, so you may want to fully utilize the chance? As for me, I didn't enter any cultural centres and museums because most of them were not opened yet when I was there. Additionally, I opted out from visiting any tea houses and restaurants because I had a goal not to spend money on unnecessary thing that day.

Tip: Please be considerate of the living residents by not making loud noises when walking around the neighbourhood.

I personally found Bukchon Hanok Village to be quite relaxing in the morning when there was no crowd. When crowd started to show, it became so hectic, especially if inconsiderate tourists showed up. I really wanted to sew up some people's mouths when I was there because they were just too loud and rude.



Oh, I also bumped into a group of Malaysians and a Malaysian family when I was there, and boy was I extremely excited and happy to see them. #masalahorangdudukoverseas However, my feeling was not reciprocated. Didn't even get a nod from them T_T Sedih gila! Thankfully, one of the guides for the group of Malaysians struck a simple conversation with me, so I was happy :)

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Bukchon Hanok Village despite being lost when searching the Scenic View #8 of Bukchon Hanok Village. I have this feeling that I can easily spend one whole day here if I have all the time in this world.

  4. one thing that I regretted during my trip to Seoul was that we didn't get the chance to visit Bukchon Hanok Village. It was so unfortunate. Another reason to go back :)

    1. Sangat-sangat tak suka dekat orang yang bising sangat-sangat masa travel ni. Please la jadi orang bertamadun T^T

      Masa tu rasa sedih but lesson learned. Lepas ni kalau travel, akan cuba senyum je. Tak mahulah lebih-lebih rasa excited sangat.
