Bukchon Village

An overview of part of Bukchon Village with modern Seoul in the background.

If you’re interested in getting off the beaten path in Seoul, here’s a Web site for you. The site is Hanok Girl Sneaks a Peek at Old Seoul (www.hanokgirl.net) and it features the area of Bukchon Village, which is an older part of Seoul. In this area of the city, the hanok, or traditional houses, have been preserved.

The site includes directions to Bukchon, a couple of walking tours, and suggestions of places to visit. If you’re a K-drama fan and have seen “Winter Sonata,” you might be interested in the walking tour that takes to the location where the series was filmed.

While it seems the site hasn’t been updated in a while, it’s got some good information that would make for a fun excursion if you’re interested in more than just the normal tourist attractions.

I think I’ll have to put this one on our “to do” list for our next visit to Korea.
