Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을) , Korea

Such an adorable little village and a must to visit during your trip to Korea. You feel quite removed from the city in this area and you feel compelled to check out every single store that you encounter as they are all so different and creative. There are also small old style restaurants and modern cafes so one could lose a couple of hours walking around. For your info the Hanbok are very beautiful and rental fee are not expensive at all. 
 I loved strolling through the narrow and quiet streets of this village. Traditional Korean houses, beautiful gates, a lot of green! Here and there you'd stumble across small artsy shops selling anything from souvenirs to leather shoes and ceramic works of art.
Plan your trip in the morning to avoid crowd because you will be here for a long time. We were here for 4 hours.  Overall definitely worth a visit if you want to see traditional culture and buildings.
