  • I went in winter near the end of the day, maybe 3 or 4 pm and it was super quiet and peaceful. They had a special event with some beautiful cloth hanging up, and some other winter games. It was quite....  more »
  • Definitely well worth a visit. Affordable entrance fees and there is a schedule for english guide tour. Spent 2 hours there and easily accessible on foot from nearest subway.  more »
  • I made a really cute bag for 36,000 won. The lady doesn’t speak a lot of English but she has a translator app which helped me understand what she was saying. The paint is made naturally (eg. from flowers, the earth) and you have stencils to choose from to fill. For most if not all palaces, you can not enter the houses but if you want to make your own souvenir (cloth, mid/big canvas tote bag) you can. Entering it was so cool. The floor was warm so you wouldn’t freeze while painting.
  • Interesting concept, they took 5 houses from around Seoul and moved to a single place. The only downside is that all houses were from the same epoch (late 19th century), so you could not compare them with other kinds of traditional constructions. Otherwise, pretty interesting place to go.
  • Very nice place. Traditional Korean village. Cool architecture. Visited during winter time, most of the area covered by snow. Have to use Google Maps from nearest subway station to find it's exact location.
  • Small village in a large park with buildings featuring old Korean architecture. Buildings aren't original although some have been moved from other parts of the city for preservation here. Has a small tea house too. Nice to spend a hour here and there bus some English information about the buildings.
  • Very informative about korean traditional village, there is a lot of photo opportunity here, N Tower is visible and very beautiful. Best when come during weekdays since it will not be crowded.
