“Soothing Environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

This was a comforting place to stopover. The village had a distinct old-school feeling. Most of the architecture here was constructed way before the modernization swept the place. Nevertheless, if you don't like that kind of things, then this place isn't worth it. But I found it to be a comforting place in a busy city.

“Beautiful place to experience Korean culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

This is the place to see if you are not traveling outside Séoul. The village is a perfect place to roam around and exploring the traditional Korean houses. The village also conducts a free demonstration of Taekwondo but not every day. You can also play games if you want to do some activity. I was lucky to witness a traditional Korean marriage ceremony which was wonderful. The place is good to stroll around and I had a great time.

“Lunar New Year Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We visited the day of Lunar New Year so it was busy, but had a lot of activities. We got to try traditional rice cake soup a Korean New Year's tradition. There we lots of arts and crafts for the kids to enjoy. They also had performances. I don't think the food, arts/crafts, and performances are normal, but a Lunar New Year event. They might do other events on regular days, but you will need to check. The village display was nice with multiple houses. There was no fee. It is easy to get to and see if in Seoul. If you would like to see a village or traditional houses without leaving the city this is a good choice. Ramps were available, but it was slightly muddy due to weather. It is also on the slope of Namsan Mountain.

“Namsangol Hanok Village is a must visit during winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The place is a must visit during winter. The snow covered village is a sight to behold. It is like a view taken out of a postcard or painting. It is very beautiful. :-)
