Holiday Travel Guide
Gangneung Seongyojang House showing heritage elements and wild flowers

Discover traditional Korean architecture at this vast, centuries-old building, where lotus-filled ponds and ornate roofs provide beautiful photo opportunities.

Visit Gangneung Seongyojang House to see where the noble Naebeon Lee family lived for almost a century. Parts of this beautiful building are as much as 300 years old. It is a stunning example of old-style Korean architecture. The level of opulence in the design gives some insight into the lives led by the upper classes of the past. Stay overnight to get even more value out of your visit.

Walk past the picturesque pond filled with beautiful floating lotus blooms and enter the house. Stop to admire the ornate building that rises from behind the pond. The courtyard contains about 100 individual rooms and structures. Explore as many as you can. Be sure to stop at the impressive “Yeolhwadang” building, which was once home to the patriarch of the family and carries great prestige.

Other spaces to visit include the “Seobyeoldang” (library) and the “Hwallaejeong” (pavilion). With so much rich detail here, from precise geometric windows to dark wood paneling, it is no wonder that the Gangneung Seongyojang House makes regular appearances as a set in South Korean TV productions. Linger over the museum exhibits contained within some of the buildings to see the house’s past brought to life.

Enjoy lunch at the wonderful on-site restaurant, which serves tasty Korean classics. Consider staying overnight. Book ahead to sleep in the simple traditional bedroom reserved for guests seeking a “hanok stay,” or a stopover in a traditional Korean house.

There is a fee to enter the house. Stay overnight in the coastal city of Gangneung or come as part of a daytrip from Seoul. Anmok Beach with its characterful Coffee Street is another good spot to add to your Gangneung itinerary. The South Korean capital is about 3 hours away by public transportation. Buses run regularly on this route.

Good hotel but could be a bit cleaner
"I enjoyed my stay at Skybay hotel. The hotel is new and fancy, but my room on the 4th floor didn't have the best view of the ocean. The room had a couple of dead bugs stuck in the blinds, which I wish they would have cleaned. The toilet also had some scratch marks and stains. So cleanliness could ..."

"I heard complaints of the place being very crowded and expensive during the peak-time. I went there late August and it's was absolutely fine. No crowds, everything is clean, the building is modern. And the ocean is exactly like on the picture, very close. So I definitely liked it."
