Seochon, located on the west side of Gyeongbokgung, has been known as The Artist’s Village.
During the 14th century, Seochon was the living quarters of poets, painters, craftsmen who were somewhere between upper class and commoners.
Today, old hanoks and guesthouse are being transformed into galleries, museums and cafes.
If you’re a gallery hopper, you will be spoiled for choices.
Seochon is also a labyrinth of speakeasy bars, local restaurants, petite and hidden cafes.
Tongin Market is one of our favorite spot to venture as the sights of food will sure fill your tummy to the brim.
After discovering the residential side of Seochon, you will get to see the Blue House, the office and residence of president.
The beautiful backdrop of Bukhasan Mountain and North Gate of Gyeongbok Palace compliments the structure of the Blue House.
