  • This is a residential area with some korean themed houses, there is nothing much else to do in this area. I wouldn't not make it a priority.  more »
  • Beautiful Hanoks, the street view was very nice. At the time we went, several Hanoks were under construction. It could be more picture perfect.  more »
  • Many of the most distinctive Korean houses can be photographed but remember to make noises, because someone is living. We also found that there are a lot of hotel, I think this should be good, because it can be more close to the Korean house, feel more special! You can consider it next time.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
