This traditional village (hanok) was great. It was fascinating to walk through. Best if you speak/read/understand some Korean, but you can get by with English. Not only did they have mannequins and setups with the houses, they had live actors. There was a Lady playing...More

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

Old village in a fortress. One of few well-preserved old villages in Korea. Even though people living inside don't follow old lifestyle(I mean hundred years ago), this is nice place to feel old atmosphere. Must-see place in Suncheon and I recommend. - Location: About an...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.
