hkskyline's 2009 KOREA Photos #2 - Seoul's Bukcheon

Of the many times I've been to Seoul, Bukcheon was certainly the biggest surprise as it is not featured in the guidebooks I've gone through over the years. Not sure how I caught it this time, but no thanks to the tourist information centre in Insadong. They were not helpful at all. Luckily, I stumbled across the Bukcheon Cultural Centre, whose staff were very helpful and provided a great map to explore the streets.









Bukcheon is a traditional area, nestled between two major palaces, and is a great place to spot historic architecture. Many of them have been restored, but still retain their old character.



It was literally steps from the royal palace.

































There were a lot of these buildings.































































This part of town is also hilly, so at certain vistas, the scene of a lot of these traditional rooftops is quite stunning.







Meanwhile, the busy city continues behind all this.
