Baek In-je's House
Baek In-je House in Gahoe-dong, located in Bukchon Hanok Village, is a hanok built during the Japanese administration period that portrays modern hanok features. The structure consists of a main room offering a good view of the whole village, spacious bedrooms, a large garden, and annex buildings. As it withholds the beauty of a traditional hanok while incorporating the modern trend of its time, Baek In-je House is considered to be highly valuable in means of both architecture and history, representing the Bukchon Hanok Village together with Yun Bo-seon House.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Jogyesa Temple
As the main temple as well as the district head temple of the Jogye order in Seoul, Jogyesa Temple is the center of Korean Buddhism. The temple was built in the late 14th century during the Goryeo period but was completely destroyed in a fire. It was rebuilt under the name of Gakwangsa Temple in 1910 with the effort of many respectful monks, namely Han Yong-un and Lee Hee-gwang. The temple was given a role as the head temple of Korea’s Buddhism and renamed to Tegosa Temple in 1936. In 1954, a purification drive took place to eliminate Japanese influence and revive traditional Buddhism, which established the present day Jogyesa Temple as a result. ( Including korean traditional bread called kukhwapang )

Amazing tour given by two junior guides. It was a private tour, which made it easier and more fun! Highly recommend if you don't have much time in Seoul. I was taken to Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon-ro Street, Jogyesa Temple, Insadong Street, and Ssamzigil Shopping Center. I was offered time to shop if I wanted, but we just kept going because I wanted to get as much in as possible! The pace of the tour was perfect.
