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

Over weekends there are expected to be renactments of traditional Korean... More

Thought id so some historical sightseeing so i went to visit the hanok village. Easy to find in Seoul, this place is definitely interesting and get a sense of history of korea. However all you're doing is just walking through old villages and theres nothing informative. Probably spent an hour here, it was alright but once was enough

The place was a lot smaller than what I had imagined. Not a lot to see, but a great location to take pictures. Go here before you head to Namsan Tower.

This is a lovely village and garden, smacked in the middle of metropolitan Seoul. The best part of this place is that there is no entrance fee. There are also free guided tours in English, Japanese and Chinese. I was the only person in that tour and I had a private tour cultural tour of the village. My tour guide... More

These yangban (educated upper-class people's) homes did notoriginally exist together but were aggregated in the area to preserve their historical architecture. There are added-on experiences you can purchase, I went for the traditional calligraphy. After a brief lesson, you use brush and ink to write the Hangeul word on canvas. If you do not know Korean, the instructor will give... More

It was at the end of my Seoul stay, that I still hadn't visited any hanoks, so I suggested my Korean penfriend to go and check it out, after picking up a brochure in the Tourist Information Office. (She hadn't heard about the place before, either!) It was my best idea and the highlight of my visit. It's beautiful and... More

In the middle of Seoul, The Korean government brought together 5 traditional houses to help people remember their past. Well worth a visit. Entrance is free. There are students who have assignments to act as guides. Free of charge.
