Bukchon Village - Bukchon Hanok Village is a quaint neighborhood where hanok (traditional Korean houses) encompass the areas of Gahoe-dong, Jae-dong, and Samcheong-dong in central Seoul. Bukchon has been a traditional residential district for more than 600 years and remains today to be one of the most beautiful areas of the city.
Namsangol Hanok Village is a collection of five hanoks (traditional Korean houses) from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), recovered from different parts of the city and relocated to the northern foot of Namsan mountain. The interiors of each of these five houses reflect owners from different walks of life, from the middle class to the yangban (who were mainly high government officials, noblemen and aristocrats).
Located in the heart of Seoul, Changgyeonggung Palace was first built by the 4th ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong, for his retiring father, King Taejong. It often served as residential quarters for queens and concubines.
