Korea: Gangnam + Bukchon Hanok Village

Back to my Korea travel post! So aside from Nami Island and Petite France, as I shared HERE and HERE, I was able to go back to Gangnam and Bukchon Hanok Village. Prior to this trip, I can barely remember what these places looked like. Forgive the #TitaMoment as my last visit was 10 years ago! Haha!

Gangnam

Anyway, the moment I exited the train station (exit 11), I immediately saw the Gangnam style stage. Of course, I had to “dance”. LOL!

Gangnam literally means “south of the river” and is located south of Han River, South Korea’s largest body of water. It is known to be the richest district in Korea. A lot of huge shopping malls can be found here, not to mention, designer brands too!

Of course, when in Korea, eat their bbq! Oh, and if you’re brave enough, how about some soju bomb?

Bukchon Hanok Village

Aside from the modern buildings around Seoul, traditional houses are also a must-see!

bukchon

Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to “northern village,” came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture. – http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/
