Where the Locals Go: Buam-dong | 10 Magazine Korea

Just a peaceful quiet, a nice view of the mountains, and charming spaces occupied by artists of all kinds. It is a beautiful respite from Seoul with all the art but none of the gritty urbanity of Hongdae, overloaded tour buses of Insadong, or pretentious airs of Samcheongdong.

Buam-dong is a neighbourhood of Jongno-gu, and resides in the north of the city just a short bus ride from the hustle and bustle, and tourist laden Gyeongbokgung Palace.

Afternoons in Buamdong |Seoul Searching

Sometimes, the places most worth visiting require a journey to get there. Buamdong is one of those places. It won't be long until it is connected to the city by subway and the masses discover its charm, which too will be vulnerable once discovered. Until that happens, however, the quaint neighborhood teeming with nature and art remains to be a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Seoul.
