day 79

삼청동. 三淸洞. Samcheong-dong

(Information from KTO) Samcheong-dong is one of the most unique places in Seoul. Gyeongbokgung Palace (the home of royalty during the Joseon Dynasty) lies to its left and Changdeokgung Palace (a secondary palace during the Joseon Dynasty) to its right, with Cheong Wa Dae (the President’s Office) and Insa-dong to the north and south respectively. According to the principles of feng-shui, Samcheong-dong is said to have the absolutely ideal location. Samcheong (sam means “three” and cheong “clean or good”) was given its name in reference to the three things it has plenty of: clean water, beautiful neighboring mountains, and kindhearted residents. Samcheong-dong seems to appeal to artistic types and in recent years, chic galleries, restaurants, cafés, and accessory shops have sprung up in the surrounding area, integrating themselves into the area’s traditional feel.
