Namsangol Hanok Village gives visitors a taste of what a traditional Korean village looked centuries ago. There are 5 restored traditional houses that show what the homes of both peasants and aristocrats looked like. You can even enter one of the houses and enjoy tea while wearing hanbok (traditional Korean clothes). You can see comedy troupes, musical performances and taekwondo shows on the performance stages. There are also traditional experiences where you can play traditional Korean games, learn traditional Korean calligraphy and learn about aristocratic etiquette. Namsangol Hanok Village is an immersive traditional Korean cultural experience that’s easy to reach in the heart of the city.
Tip 1: Hanbok rentals are cheaper inside Namsangol Hanok Village at 10,000 won per hour than outside the village (almost double the price). However, you should come earlier in the day, otherwise you’ll be put on a waitlist.
Tip 2: Come to Namsangol Hanok Village if you’re in Korea during Korea’s biggest holidays: Seollal (Lunar New Year) and Chuseok. Although many stores will be closed, Namsangol Hanok Village will have plenty of things to do and learn during those two holidays.
