Samcheong-dong

[box_light]Samcheong-dong 삼청동[/box_light]

Running along the eastern edge of Gyeongbokgung Palace, Samcheong-dong Road is lined with beautiful ginkgo trees that turn a golden color in autumn. The street is lined with cafés, museums, antique shops, and a number of famous art galleries. Since each art gallery building has its own unique architectural design, taking a walk and appreciating the buildings is a journey in itself. Just past Samcheong Tunnel, at the end of the walkway, you’ll find Samcheong Park, which is famous for its thick forest and scenic views.
