A stroll around Bukchon Hanok Village lets you experience a traditional Korean village. The village, with its 6 centuries of history, is located between the 2 palaces in the city, Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. Unlike other traditional villages, Bukchon was not built for tourists. This is where the ruling class lived during the Joseon Dynasty and a few descendants of the aristocracy still reside here. Unlike other hanok villages (such as Namsangol Hanok Village), Bukchon was not re-created for tourists and it is real residential village inhabited by Koreans. The best place within Bukchon to experience the old hanok atmosphere may be Gaehoe-dong. Here, hundreds of hanok sit shoulder to shoulder. In recent years, the charms of traditional hanok have been receiving increased attention. Shops like hanok galleries, craft workshops and hanok restaurants, a new kind of hanok culture is developing in Bukchon Hanok Village. Every nook in this village seems to contain traces of history and young Koreans are re-discovery their pride for hanok through visits to Bukchon.
