I don't own these photos. Credits go to their rightful owners. I just want to show everyone beauty of South Korea.
Gahoe-dong has one of the oldest alleys in Seoul. The area used to be an exclusive area for nobles, scholars, and homes of government officials hence it was well-maintained. Many of the hanok, Korean traditional houses, have been remodeled into cafe, restaurant and teahouses. At the intersections, there are far more three-forked roads than crossroads. Here, you can see the beauty of Bukchon in one glance – a sight used in many advertisements.
Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses called ‘hanok’ that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name, ‘Bukchon,’ literally translates to ‘northern village’. 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.
