While we were hitting up all the palaces in Seoul, we discovered the Bukchon Hanok Village wedged in between.
It is a traditional Korean village with preserved homes, hanoks, still being lived in, while some are tea houses, restaurants or cultural centers.
Since there are real families living there they ask that you keep the noise down while you are exploring.
We were able to tour one of the homes that was actually recently constructed to look like a traditional Hanok.
I've seen paper walls and doors like this in my mom's photos.
You take your shoes off when you enter a home in Korea.
Aaron was sooo tired of taking his shoes off and putting them back on.
