Bukchon Hanok Village
Meaning ‘North Village’, Bukchon, between Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung, is home to around 900 hanok, Seoul’s largest concentration of these traditional Korean homes. It’s a busy tourist area, but it’s still a pleasure to get lost in the streets here admiring the patterned walls and tiled roofs contrasting with the modern city in the distance.
Best known as Seoul’s largest food alley (or meokjagolmok), the Gwangjang Market is home to some 200 stalls set up among kimchi and fresh seafood vendors.
A raised highway was torn down and cement roads removed in this US$384-million urban renewal project to ‘daylight’ this stream. With its landscaped walkways, footbridges, waterfalls and a variety of public artworks, such as the enormous pink-and-blue shell entitled Spring in Cheong-gye Plaza, the revitalised stream is a hit with Seoulites who come to escape the urban hubbub and, in summer, dangle their feet in the water.
