Seoul-o (solo) Winter trip: Insadong and Bukchon Hanok Village


Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses called “hanok”. Some of it is still resident occupied and some had already been converted into cafes, restaurants and some accessory shops. Others had also converted it to guest houses and allows visitors to learn and immerse themselves in the traditional Korean culture.


I started checking out the Bukchon Museum and walked my way around the village. I was able to get a map of the whole Bukchon Village at the Musem, it’s a must before you start wandering around.

How to get there: 

  • From Anguk station (Line 3), take exit 1 or 2
  • Walk straight for approximately 700m.

Admission is free and you can visit any time of the year.


Insadong is a tourist attraction in Seoul that is known for Korean traditional culture and crafts. It is a great place to buy traditional souvenirs. Stored located along the main road of Insadong is selling hanboks, traditional teas, hanji, pottery and folk crafts and lot more.


On every alley of Insadong you’ll be able to see art galleries, traditional restaurants and tea houses. When in Insadong make sure to visit Ssamziegil mall which has over 70 shops including handicrafts stores, souvenir shops, and a lot more.

How to get there:
