The charm of Samcheongdong (Seoul, South Korea)

Jongno is one of my favorite places in Seoul as most of the palaces and traditional houses are located in this area and gives you a good picture of the charm of Korea’s history and culture. One of the neighborhoods you need to visit in this area is Samcheongdong which is located between Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace. The long road gives you a certain kind of mix and twist between modern and traditional Seoul. It is also very beautiful during autumn with its line of ginko trees. Art galleries, museums, antique shops and local boutiques adds to the vibe of the place.

How to get to Samcheongdong?

We stayed in Jongno area during out trip so it was just a walking distance to our guesthouse. To get there by train, the nearest station is Anguk, Subway Line 3 or Gyeongbokgung Station.
