I visited this place after seeing Bukchon and it was nice to see the houses open with furnitures to give a better idea how the people lived in the past. While I was there there was a group studying calligraphy, but I could not see them because the windows were closed. Some of the houses were moved to the village,... More

This is a good place to come and see the houses with furniture in. So many of the museums show the houses as empty, but here they have collected together typical furniture so give a more complete look at how the people lived. Live 3 or 4, stn: Chungmuro exit 3. Free entrance.

This village is a created area. The houses have been moved to the site. You can therefore see inside the houses. There are explanations and workshop areas.

The exterors and interiors are meant to be authentic reconstructions, and by and large they are more chock full of refurbished exhibits. It's a good place to see glimpses of what living conditions may be like in the past, but they look very new. Can be done in 30-40 minutes if not watching a show at the pavilion or strolling... More

When the location is only 5 minutes walk from the place i stay in chungmoro, it's easy to reach. It's beautiful during the winter as the snow covers the roofs and giving great views for photos. But it was too cold during my short visit to this village as i only manage to wander around for only 30 minutes.

Very close to chungmuro station. Get out exit 3, don't go up the slope, walk straight past the petrol kiosk, follow the sign and you're there in 3 min. Nice environment and atmosphere. They moved some actual hanok onto this site. So they are not really new replicas. We went during the lunar new year festivities period and they had... More

It's just another old-style village in Korea. It's just 10 minutes walking from Myeong-dong. Best hour to go: after 6 p.m. (it will be night and empty!).

I loved the Hanok village, as well as the details about the history of the village. I also went to Bukchon, but it was difficult to really see a lot given that they are being lived in.

I visited this village on a Sunday end of November, which I believe is the low tourist season for Seoul. Admission to this village is free, and there are free guided tours offered by volunteers. I requested for an English speaking tour, and was given a private tour by an ajusshi who spoke good English. He gave me a great... More
