Eunpyeong Hanok village is yet a hidden gem in Korea. Probably most of you have not heard about this modern hanok village yet. If not then make this newly built hanok village your next visit.
Eunpyeong Hanok village is located in Eunpyeong district which is in northwestern Seoul. The village is surrounded by the famous mountain Bukhansan, making it a beautiful picturesque location.
This village was built in 2014 as a part of a hanok subsidiary project to promote Korean culture and to attract more tourists to the Eunpyeong district. According to the project, there are 158 hanoks and most of them are built for residential purposes, however, some hanoks are opened to visitors to let them fulfil their Korean dream of living in a hanok.
Compared to Bukchon hanok village and Namsangol hanok village, there are lesser people here so you can take your time to walk around and explore the city a bit. Right close to the village, there is Eunpyeong history and hanok museum where you can learn about the history of Eunpyeong and if you climb the hill a bit there is a beautiful Buddhist temple called “Jingwansa”. It is known as one of Seoul’s four major temples. Around the village, there are also a lot of hanok style cafes with rooftops. If you want to take an instagrammable photo with a view, then make sure you visit either cafe 1 in 1 cup (1인1상) or Bukhansan Atelier.
