A place to learn traditional Korean houses
May 2019
In this place we can see details of Korean traditional houses. there is also archery training using traditional Korean clothes. The area is quite wide and tourists can see the inside and contents of traditional houses.

Nice, Quiet place with great views of Namsan
Dec 2019
I went in winter near the end of the day, maybe 3 or 4 pm and it was super quiet and peaceful. They had a special event with some beautiful cloth hanging up, and some other winter games. It was quite fun and a nice place to start the hike to Namsan Tower

Walk and fresh air
Dec 2019 • Family
It is early winter and the air is fresh and cold. We walked from our hotel up
The track and down to this village. I can imagine how beautiful it will be when in spring. But many local still walk here, business Executives that walked after their finished their lunch. Senior folks that that stroll and the in full sports gear.
Nice place to visit.

One of the most romantic fall attractions and panoramic view in Seoul
Nov 2019
If you want a good view of North Seoul Tower and its surrounding Namsan Mountains plus a beautiful garden right at the heart of Seoul then look no further than booking your nearest hotel in Namsangol Hanok Village which is near the Exit 4 and 7 of Chungmuro Station. By exit 4 turn left then right and you would see the entrance gate to this park. It was an accident that we didn't know the hotel we booked (Oriens - separate review) is nearby. Just 10 mins walk and whola were at the entrance. It is free for public and before the park there are many cafes', food carts and restaurants around it. Built in 1998 on the north side of Namsan Tower, the village has 5 restored Korean houses, gardens, pavilion, small streams, activity center, museum and small popup stores. Hanok means restored and its location is the original site for Jeonghakdong, a summer resort during the Joseon dynasty. The exhibit hall displays their traditional kitchen, clay pots, utensils, tea rooms, etc... There are toilets and this place is accessible by PWD. If you walk further south there is a hiking trail leading to N Seoul Tower and shuttle bus that can take you there directly. Parking is also available. When we visited there was a playground and activities set for the families and their kids. It was indeed a delightful surprise and experience for us to visit this park just right beside our hotel - one of the most scenic, romantic and beautiful attraction in Seoul. A quiet calming stroll here will take you breath away with its wonderful view and amazing attractions. Do come visit it guaranteed!!!

Small and Free

My visit here occurred on my third time in Seoul and I did not regret missing it on my first two trips. Unlike other recreated villages I have gone to worldwide, this one offers only five traditional houses, which have been moved here. They provide a good cross-section of how Joseon Dynasty citizens lived, but none beckoned to linger; and no hands-on activities, such as wearing traditional garments, were available on an early weekday afternoon in November.

Though there is no admission charge, the free access did not seem to stimulate interest, at least at this time of year. I saw only a handful of other visitors during my brief exploration. But this atmosphere proved to be a nice change from the crowds at popular tourist attractions, such as palaces. I enjoyed sitting by the pond here for a while and walking along one of the trails in the park at the rear of the complex.

The village is near the Myeongdong area of Seoul. By subway, take Line 3 or 4, get off at Chungmuro Station and take Exit 3 or 4.

I loved this tour. The steep inclines and quaint houses and shops is reminiscent of our tour in Tuscany (on much smaller scale). So picturesque, I can understand the attraction for tourists. But I sympathize with the residents having to put up with us taking selfies in their doorways. We only stayed for about 30 minutes. It’s a real look into the history of South Korea.

This Hanok village is easy to find and is walking distance from my hotel. The heritage houses are well maintained and is good to visit inspite of being free access

A peek at Joseon culture and traditional houses
Jul 2019 • Business
I didn't have high expectations as I went to Bukchon Hanok Village before; so reckon it'll be similar ie cafes housed in traditional houses etc. But at Namsangol Hanok Village (NHV) surprises me at every turn. First you can experience 1 hour sleeping time in the hanok (for a small fee). I thought that's a very refreshing experience in true sense of the word. Next you can rent traditional costume and take photos or pretend you're in a period drama and walk around the village. We also came across a gentleman who is a falconer and told us many information on this ancient heritage of korean falconry. The cafe nestled in the middle of the village is also very quaint and the souvenirs are worth looking at.
