Seoulmate Tour in Bukchon

Description

Bukchon East is located next to Changdeokgung. A charming and quieter area compared to Bukchon West as it strays away from the main crowd and tucked into the neighborhood of Gahoe-dong. This tour covers 2 part of hanok village. There are Gahoe-dong and Ikseondong.   Gahoe means “joyful meeting” in Korean, perfect for a neighborhood with residents live closely together in hanoks. This area is a hanok residential district and has many facilities offering traditional cultures and beautiful Korean architectures. You will get to see and experience how upper class live during the Joseon Dynasty. 

On the other hand, Ikseondong is a hanok village for the lower class. The name "Iksun" means "something better" Jeong Saekwon was an Independence fighter and architect that brought up Ikseondong to be a korean residential area. He was also the same architect who develop hanok in Gahoedong.  It was left half abandoned during the 2000s and almost demolished but recently a group of designers helped to preserve the hanok by opening artisanal shops, cafes and restaurants. It is a must visit place to see in Seoul if you want to avoid the main-stream shops in Bukchon West.
