  • Very interesting to visit thus village with traditional Korean living, a bit hard to find from our tour stop but defibately worth a visit.  more »
  • These are beautifully restored historical buildings that are mostly residential. Go there first thing in the morning when the sun is best for taking photographs and before the tour groups arrive.  more »

  • If you like historical landmark, this place will suit you. Seoul manage to keep several of hanok village as well as palaces here for attraction. Personally I like to look at the cultures itself through architecture like these. Looks pretty new, too new that I doubt myself if this place were refurbished recently or build up not long ago.
  • It's good place near from subway station. Rarely tourist go to there. So you could take a lot picture for your collection. You can rent hanbok in there but not for free about 15000-20000 won. No entrance fee. It's good if you goto there when cherry blossom blooming.
  • Very beautiful, picturesque scenery, well maintained edifices, but it can get crowded with tourists and busy all-around. Definitely visit this if you're in Seoul!
  • Nice place, near to subway station and a coffee shops. It's posible to get a hanbok dress to take a beautiful pictures.
  • Interesting view of old Seoul. Signs are all provided in English, for those who don't speak Korean.
