Old Style Village

It's just another old-style village in Korea. It's just 10 minutes walking from Myeong-dong. Best hour to go: after 6 p.m. (it will be night and empty!).

I loved the Hanok village, as well as the details about the history of the village. I also went to Bukchon, but it was difficult to really see a lot given that they are being lived in.

I visited this village on a Sunday end of November, which I believe is the low tourist season for Seoul. Admission to this village is free, and there are free guided tours offered by volunteers. I requested for an English speaking tour, and was given a private tour by an ajusshi who spoke good English. He gave me a great... More

This is a great place to learn on the living styles and habits of old Korea. It takes you back to the scenes you would have watched in the television. There is a centre outside the entrance where you could rent a Hanbok for photography too.

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 urns used to make kimchi, and lifestyle.

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,

We went here during the spring season which is a nice timing to witness the cherry blossom trees. It's great to explore the Korean traditional houses - like you're back in the past. Also you can see the Namsan Tower from afar.

Though we visited it towards evening, we could find the architectural beauty of the houses quite fascinating. The winding climbing narrow lanes take you into another world to feel the difference. There is beauty in every angle. We wish we could visit and explore the whole area. One should visit this area to experience the Korean peaceful past. Though we... More
