Located right in front of Samcheong-dong, Gyeongbokgung Palace is a favorite among international travelers and is a great place to walk around and revisit the ancient Joseon Dynasty. Another notable attraction is the World Jewelry Museum (down a maze-like alley east of the palace), which displays an impressive array of over 2,000 pieces of jewelry collected by the wife of a former diplomat.
Before touring Samcheong-dong, visitors are encouraged to check out the Bukchon Munhwa (Culture) Center located in Hanok Village, to experience the beauty of traditional Korean houses and the lifestyle that went along with it. Dong-Lim Museum is another visitor favorite, providing patrons the chance to appreciate the knotted ornaments and accessories that once defined the Korean decorative style. No matter what your touring agenda is while in Samcheong-dong, we highly recommend winding down the day with a cup of traditional tea at one of the area’s many hanok cafés.
