A place for couples to have a romantic date or any exhausted Seoulite that wants to recreate a bit. Heyri is a small 'village' in the close proximity of Paju city that offers various things to do and see, museums, galleries, romantic restaurants and cafes, quirky architecture. Some may call it an art village but don't expect art in the... More

We stopped by the village after a visit to the DMZ. Nothing stand out to be very extraordinary except that it is one of the location of filming of "My love from the star". We spent maybe half an hour just to walk about.

I went here during the winter season seeing some snow remains. It's so nice to walk around to appreciate the houses, cafes, structures and the arts all over the village. It's an hour bus ride from Seoul, just take the bus 2200 to get here.

During our visit we didn't discover any real art. Most of the shops sell cheap souvenirs. The village is overcrowded with parked cars. It's a weird posh Asian place. I wouldn't recommend going there.

I visited this place on a Tuesday. Managed to avoid the crowd. However I realised not many places were opened. Conversed with a cafe owner who explained to me that most of their museums were closed on Mon-Tues. Good to visit this place on Wed-Sun. Map provided by the tourist information booth is only available in Korean. However staff was... More

I past the place a few times when commuting for work and we decided to try a visit. Most shops sell soap, scent or coffee. As said, for a one time visit it's OK but I'm not sure if we may go back. The underground shopping area has a few shops we liked and the restaurant/bakery on top of 'Maison... More

You can walk around for a while. There are mostly restaurants. But it's nice to go for a walk anyways. There are also some art shops and wineries. Things there aren's expensive, but not cheap either.

First, I really enjoyed certain aspects of Hyeri (correct spelling) Art Village. My fiancé and I found an excellent Vietnamese restaurant that had good food. Was it worth the price? Not completely but the food was above average, it was a touristy area and she enjoyed it. Therefore I had no problem paying a little more for good food. The... More
