  • Really a cool place to walk. You can see many people and nice architectures. The charming aspects is the mix between the contemporary and traditional architecture.
  • Samcheong-dong is one of the most unique places in Seoul next to Gyeongbokgung Palace . Samcheong-dong is famous for its Bukchon Hanok Village. We saw many cafe located in samcheong-dong.
  • Cool area with some various specialty shops like a local mall strip but much more hip. Found a good tea spot, with a gorgeous view, a fragrance specialty store and it really is what you find. I'd recommend coming on a cool day with lots of time to spare. The stores are on a hill and some steep hill walking required
  • Busy trendy vibe. Plenty to see and do.
  • Lots of shops and restaurants. We visited here after checking out Gyeongbokgung Palace. The east side of the street is on a hill so you find a lot of odd paths to businesses. I was not impressed given the high rating on trip advisor.
