  • 韓屋村對於自由行旅客可以說是相當省錢, 因為它不需要門票, 又可以造訪許多韓屋式的建築。 這次去的時間是春天, 所以很多櫻花盛開, 很多人再在此地拍照留念, 春夏秋冬應該都會有不同的體驗! 有興趣的旅客可以租一套韓服進來拍照喔!  more »
  • When you are trying to take away a person this past weekend I went to a small village passing by came unto you than previously thought. Children are playing in the yard, as well as to more English-speaking foreigners, who sat next to speak was a place makes. The Koreans also have a neat Korean place to eat.

  • 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)
