Traditional old houses of Bukchon Hanok village in Seoul

Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses called 'hanok' that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse in Korean traditional culture. Some hanok owners are offering home stay experiences, well worth a visit if you have chance to stay one or two nights.
