Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을) & Insa-dong (인사동)

Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을)

This place is in the heart of Seoul and is small area consisting of lots of small traditional style Hanok houses. I went at night and although it was nice, i think visiting during the day is the best time to go.
Most of the houses had a similar style to this …

Make sure you check out the Bukchon Observatory.. there is a nice little tea house on the 2nd or 3rd floor with views over Bukchon and part of Seoul (you can also see the presidents house from here)

Insa-dong (인사동)

This place is one of the biggest touristy spots in Seoul and is definitely worth a visit, especially for souvenirs and the like. I only briefly walked through here hence only a couple of photos. Well worth a look even if it is only for 30 mins to an hour.
Some interesting looking masks..
Self explanatory really..
