Namsangol Hanok Village is a taste of old Korean traditions in the middle of Seoul, South Korea. It’s a cultural adventure worth the experience.

Namsangol Hanok Village is in central Seoul. It was reopened back in the late 90s. The village features a number of traditional Korean architecture — houses, pavilions, gardens, stages, and plazas. The village’s environment is peaceful and the trees are abundant. The restored village is the perfect place to take a walk and get away from the annoying lover.
In addition, South Korean government buried a time capsule inside the village in 1994. It’s scheduled to be reopened in 400 hundred years in 2394. Now, I know where my DeLorean went; the South Korean government buried it. I knew I was getting prank. South Koreans and their sense of humor.
The remodeled hanok houses display a range of social economic classes during the Joseon Dynasty — 1% versus us. The traditional houses are off-limits, but the interior is position to explain the lives of old Korean traditions. There is a tea house that’s opened to the public, so we common people could feel like a 1%er for a few hours. It’s a bit disappointing cause I take trips to forget about being poor and the last thing I need is a reminder of my economic status in a foreign country. I can get that when I check my bank account after coming home.
Lastly, Namsangol Hanok Village is a great place to visit in addition to the other palaces in Seoul — Gyeongbokgung. The restored village brings back the past and it reminds me that I’m still poor in the present. Only if I could have rich people problems like deciding whether to have caviar or foie gras for dinner. That would be a good problem to have.
