We did enjoy visiting this place , since there is more attractions offered when we were there. Besides it is the shooting location for very famous serial film Korean . The places is more artistic with all the houses have roof made from dried ilalang like in Balinese traditional house. It is worth it to visit compared the Hankok village.

This village is home to two hundred Koreans who still live out their daily lives much the same as Koreans did during the height of the Joseon Dynasty. Although the site of the village has actually been inhabited since the beginning of the first millennia, the area was selected as a fortress village in the early 10th century by the... More

This village is huge with about 85 households left staying there. Traditional built houses can been seen with fortress walls around it. Not only is it rich in history but very well preserved. Worth a visit definitely.

The folk village was huge and spanned a history of 700 years. About 100 families still reside in the traditional houses, going about their daily lives with tourists milling around. It was a village of traditional huts with roofs made out of straw framed by an imposing fortress wall built to fend off intruders in the past.You can find out... More

I've seen too many Korean folk villages. This may be one of the best, but don't OD on these places. It was raining when we went and that didn't help.

I thought that it would be difficult to get to this village by public transportation but it was actually a very smooth trip! I took bus #63 from Chung Am Dae Hak (which is close to Suncheon Bay Park) and it took about 30 mins, plus you get a scenic view of the countryside. There are restaurants right across the... More

Early in the morning this fortress/village is relatively quiet. As day gets older, it becomes more and more like a zoo. It is NOT a real village at all. Everything is organized and fake. Every person who lives there is employed by the state/city and is wearing appropriate period costume. It is like Colonial Williamsburg in the USA except we... More
