If you like to explore and take pictures of traditional structures, this is the place for you. There are not a lot of explanations of what you are seeing but I don't think it needs it. There are some stores but not much. It is just like wandering around an old neighborhood. We went there on a taxi tour. I... More

This village was very interesting. A lot of people still live in this village and they make a living off of the products that they sell. The village is free to go to, so we made sure to purchase some things in the village. We encountered a couple English speakers that guided us and explained some things to us. They... More

You should visit the Folk Village if you : Want to see how they lived back in those days, you love to watch Korean drama's, you have time to kill or you want to keep the kids occupied. Overall not a bad place to spend a few hours

We were greeted by the only English speaking guide of the village. He must have encountered many tourists and picked up a bit of foreign languages. He was able to greet us in our national language. Further more, he explained that there are no beggars, thieves and gates in Jeju. The villagers live in thatched roof houses with stone walls... More

The guide will tell you about the traditions and culture of the folks living in this village, of how women remain breadwinners in their family.

A local will show you around and explain about traditional living in korea, but you cant really enter the houses. They will end the short tour by selling their products. I bought the honey and it was pretty tasty.. There was literally only 2 bathroom stalls so expect long lines.

It;s amazing that in a modern country like South Korea, this traditional village is still well appreciated by the government either by Korean people. This village can describe the situation of the ancient life of Korean people. Now, the village people have to accept modern life and for survival they promote and sell a kind of traditional medicine made of... More

Korean heritage homes should be preserved for future generations to appreciate. Great to be able to see what kind of homes in the olden days the korean people live in.

thank to the Chinese tour guide, we had a very informative (and frank) introduction to the history of jeju-do. the place is also very picturesque, with all the ancient architectures. it feels like going back in time. there'll also be a sales promotion time, but the tour guide said that we do not have to buy anything if we don't...
