The highlight of the day was Bukchon, where we explored the Hanok Traditional Village on the upper side of Bukchon, while the modern buildings nestled below. The village is an actual residential area, and tourists were encouraged to be respectful and keep noises to a minimal.
In the evening we checked out the Cheonggyecheon Stream which ran across parts of the downtown. As it was nighttime, I did not risk dipping my feet in for I couldn’t really see the condition of the water and it was too chilly anyway.
