In every "To-Do thing in South Korea" you Google, you find, There will be Bukchon Hanok Village in Top 5, In fact for many tourists, "Your trip is incomplete without getting dressed in Hanbok in Bukchon village".
This great cultural heritage Village of Korea , as old as 600 years , situated between Central Seoul Palace ( Gyeongbokgung Palace) and Changdeokgung Palace is still a residential Area for many Korean families.
How to reach: The best to visit this place is to add it on list along with Gyeongbok Palace, Take Metro Line: 3 Exit 5.
Walk into the Palace. After completing palace explore, Join the way to Bukchon Hanok village which is nearby. Always choose Naver Maps for Direction, Google doesn't really work here in this part of the world.
Entry to Village: Free , non-commercial site.
Upon my arrival to his Heritage village, the first Sign board I see Said " No Tourists allowed , Thanks for your Cooperation. Our Village is suffering from Tourists". This took me by surprise, Never in my Travelling, I was welcomed with such harsh words. This did gave me a negative perspective of Local residents initially, Least do we know how the local residents are getting affected by us.
As I moved further inside the gorgeous Alleys and houses , Saw few Volunteers standing with Sign board "Please talk quietly", another requesting signage on Every door said "Please don't Knock, Touch or assemble" at the doors. I slowly started to realize that this place is not the routine tourist place.
