  • A nice and peaceful area where you can view traditional Korean village. Very nice to walk through it. We ourselves are the end of the day been here and have this visit combined with the Namsan Park. In the dark we walked through the village back and that too is a must. Places in dark with the lighting.

  • In this village you can get back in time. Admire the old Korean lifestyle and experience how people slept in living rooms or read books. You can also here in the temples itself experienced how they have lived at a very nice price. Very nice to see. In addition, it is very easy, and you can rest a few hours walking around. Please note, at hot days in the evening for mosquitoes!

  • Very nice, quiet surroundings in the midst of the city. The hanok are in a very good condition, the facilities are well maintained the staff are friendly. The Namsangol is a great place to get into touch with the way Koreans used to live in the past.
  • 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.
  • Nice friendly low-key little spot. Wander around with the locals, view the historic houses. There's a night market with a few food stalls and when we were there some traditional music.
  • It's beautiful and there are fun activities you can participate - such as writing Korean with ink. You get to write your name in hangul on a canvas or a pouch 😊👍

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
