The fortress wall around the traditional village and homes is beautiful and worth a visit just to wander around. The different informational stops inside the village are fairly well done but only offer basic information (which is just fine for the average tourist). Overall, worth...More

It was great to see a real working village where the old world is kept alive in a modern day. Many things to see like fortress walls that you can walk on and see the view, shrines, prison and homes with thatched roofs.

There are still living 200 people here. It is definitely worth a visit. You can walk on the wall to have a good overview of the village.
