Heyri Art Village, Paju

3.8
#6 of 19 in Things to do in Paju
Less than 6 km (3.5 mi) from the North Korean border, you'll find the unlikely Heyri Art Village, a vibrant community of over 370 working artists. Between them, these architects, painters, writers, and musicians have created a manicured trove of unusual structures, streets, and suprising sights. Among the stark architecture you can expect to see unexpected sculptures, juxtaposed with ornate gardens and dilapidated retro rides. Look out for the "Farmer's Table," a restaurant used as a filming location in one of Korea's best-loved dramas, "Boys Before Flowers". You can see all this before even entering the township's abundant art galleries, displaying everything from traditional paintings to sculptures made of chocolate.

    Many buildings with special layout but the styles are similar. You can spend more time to visiting each exhibition house for different topic.

Where to stay in Paju

Paju offers a large amount of hotels for its visitors, with all brackets represented across the diverse urban area. Look close to the river for some of the spa and retreat options, along with hotels and guesthouses boasting luxury rooms and river views. In the urban center to the north, you'll find a good deal more standard hotels and budget options. Still, many more people head to Paju to see its sights (primarily the DMZ) on a day trip from Seoul.
