Another post from my trip to Korea. Hey two weeks holiday I sure have plenty to talk about!

On my last day in Seoul, I wanted to do a touristic activity after going to so many malls, even though great, they started to look all the same to me. I asked the receptionist of my hotel where could I go and he recommended the Bukchon Hanok Village. To my surprise it was just 5 minutes taxi ride but when you get there it seems so far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Bukchon means ‘Northern Village’ and Hanok are Korean traditional houses which are now guesthouses, restaurants, cultural centers and tea houses. It is supposed to bring you back to a 600-year old environment. There are 8 landmarks to see which are called the “8 views of Bukchon”, unfortunately I am not sure if I have seen any of them as I kept getting lost trying to understand the map and my feet were killing me walking around in high heels. Not a smart move I am telling you! But in my defence I didn’t know I was going to hike and I was in love with these shoes!

Anyway the visit was great; there are plenty of handicraft shops and antique boutiques to discover especially “Place Mori” which has the most quirky objects! Definitely a must see if you go to Seoul.
