  • A good place to spend your time and see how an old Korean village look like. Admission is free and right in the city. Highly recommended for tourists who want to take photographs of Korean houses, the...  more »
  • It's a nice place to explore the culture and history. Probably take 1 hour to walk around and there's no admission fee. You can rent hanbok outside the village for 20,000₩ for 1 hour. 
  • Visit on a weekend when there is a planned wedding in progress. The houses are of an older period and give a free taste of the authentic Korean culture,

  • Beautiful reconstruction of traditional Korean houses, surrounded by a nice park at the feet of the Namsangol Tower. The Seoul's time capsule is also buried here. Several activities and experiences may available here: wearing traditional clothes, having tea, exhibitions of taekwondo... If you don't have time to visit a real Hanok, this is a good example. However, I would recommend experiencing a real stay in a traditional house for at least one night, and if possible, far from the cities, so you can feel the real Korean classic lifestyle.
  • We're lucky avoiding the walk up to the park. Instead we found a different entrance that takes you straight to the top by a lift. The lift is next to a playground. Then you can stroll leisurely down the hill from there.
  • Beautiful hanok village museum and culture... get a chance to learn in traditional Korean home and trying hanbok and it is in myeongdong pretty much in downtown Seoul
  • It is an interesting place, but looks very similar to all other Korean architecture. So if you're not completely into the Korean culture may get quite boring.
  • If you have never been to a traditional village befoe then this one might interest you, its a nice place, sometime theres some shows (I've seen a Takwando show, aimed for kids but still nice) there is some place you can do a traditional tea ceremony that is nice if you like tea and the old/traditional atmosphere If you already been to few Hanok villages the my stars drop to 3, its ok if you have some time and its close to Nam mountain (Nam San - Seoul Tower)
