Seochon Village (or Sejong Village) is located at the west of Gyeongbokgung Palace, and thus giving its name reference to 'West Village'.

The village resembles the old Seoul with hanoks (traditional Korean houses) along its many alleys. Interesting boutique shops, beautiful cafes and art galleries have emerged over the years that harmonised with its surrounding well, making Seochon Village a favourite place for leisure walk, afternoon tea or simply exploring.
