This Hanok Village is well worth a visit and has more to see than we had expected. There is no entrance fee and you can spent a pleasant hour or two in the park and viewing the traditional houses. There was live music when we visited on a Sunday afternoon and many families were out enjoying the atmosphere. This is... More

This is a place with many traditional Korean homes, moved from areas from around Seoul, almost like a North American pioneer village. Architecture is beautiful, place is clean and it is free to get in. The surrounding park, Namsan park, is lovely in its own right. Both places have many opportunities for photos. Nice outing.

This recreation of a traditional Korean village has free shows, plenty of refreshment stands, historic recreations and is also the home to many Korean TV shows. If you have a Korean friend be sure to get some photos with the cut-outs of the current TV Soap Opera locations, they will be so envious! We found the folk dancing attraction especially... More

Not a must-see in my opinion but worth going to if you're already in the vicinity. Neat to walk around and see the traditional houses but when we were there there was hoards of tourists so it was hard to enjoy it or even get a good photo.

Must see when you visit Seoul. You get to see the traditional houses of Koreans. In here you will also find replicas of some houses of famous people in Korean history. You will also get to see the Time Capsule of Seoul within the area.
