Namsangol Hanok Village, Seoul

Namsangol Hanok Village is one of Korean village in the heart of Seoul. If you are going to Seoul, I insist you to visit at least one “hanok village”. Hanok villages has Korean traditional houses that have been restored to preserve the original atmosphere.

I went to this Namsangol Hanok Village (also known as “A Village of Traditional Houses in the Namsan Valley”) on my third day in Seoul. It was just 5 minutes walking distance from the apartment we rented.

Direction to Namsangol Hanok Village:

1. First, take Metro to Chungmuro station. Once you arrived, go to Exit 3 or 4.
2. You are basically in front of Namsangol Hanok Village. Just look out for signs!


On the way up to the entrance you will see a shop renting Hanbok (Korean traditional clothes) for KRW 20,000 per person. You can actually go inside the Hanok village wearing a Hanbok and take as many pictures as you want! 😀

Anyway, there were around 5 huge Korean traditional houses inside the area, complete with spacious garden and park. Just like in the movies! This is a great place for sightseeing and picture-taking! And of course, to learn more about Korean.


If you’re strong enough, you can explore the further area of the village where a “time machine” was buried.

    Great article! This place really is awesome and I just wonder if you happen to bump into one great guesthouse in there with the same inspired architecture? They have the same look-and-feel which lets you experience the whole of traditional Korea? That guesthouse is called Myeonggajae Hanok guesthouse > http://www.myeonggajae.org
