South Korea: Bukchon Hanok Village

After visiting the beautiful Changdeokgung Palace, I visited the historical Bukchon Hanok Village which is nearby. Bukchon village consist of traditional houses, called Hanok. You can explore the village with a guided tour but I decided to explore the village on my own. There’s such an overflowing serenity through the village, it felt for a moment I was really in the Joseon time period. Time stood still. It really kept me wondering how people lived their daily lives back in those days. I’ve got the impression that they must have lived very humble lives back then. It warms my heart and I’m glad I got to see it with my own eyes. As of today, most of these buildings operate as tea houses, guesthouses and cultural centers. Walking through the village is an unique experience I will never forget.

When I finished exploring the stunning village, I went to relax at a restaurant. I ordered Bibimbap, a famous Korean dish. You have many variations but I went for the vegetarian option. It’s basically served with a bowl of warm rice, vegetables, egg and Gochujang. You only have to mix those ingredients together and your dish is ready to eat.
