The female lead taking care of our tour group is very funny and lively. She made our visit at Seongeup Folk Village a fun trip!

Great to know some of the interesting facts about the village but It was more about product marketing than introducing how they managed daily life in the past

When we arrived, someone from the village immediately took us for a short tour. There isn't much to see but the spokesperson provided some interesting snippets about Korean life. At the end of the tour, she tried to sell us stuff which kinda put us off.

i think this is an over rated attraction. they say Jeju is becoming a growing honey moon attraction but I was very disappointed in my sight seeing in Jeju. Although folk village is rated high in the place I thought it was complete waste of time. No doubt the place itself is has beautiful scenery there are other places on... More

We were taken to the folk village. We originally tried the Jeju Folk Village Museum but that was full of tourists. We were shown around several buildings that we were told were still lived in. Sorry but even primitive people had some form of furniture and cooking facilities. Yes some people may life on site and in other houses. But... More

Only signs we saw are those explaining whose house the thatched roofed houses were. There was nothing else much to see culturally except vacated old houses. Houses still occupied were already modern looking. Lack of signs and explanation. Would have skipped this. However the black pork outside the village in the restaurants near by the parking area was yummy.

We learnt about the folklore, daily life and local people in the village, worthy the 1-hour drive! The local guide (an old woman) taught us some dialect and showed us some daily-used tools back in the past. At last she led us to a shopping room for some honey and medicine. It would have been perfect if we had more... More

It;s a historical village where we can find the heritage of old Jeju's culture from the past. We're walking around to see closely the way jeju's origin people.

Although these lava-stone houses with the thatched roofs held on by handmade ropes are a part of Jeju's past, they are still very much occupied today. You can see the kimchi jars and old-style gates along with satellite dishes attached out back. This is very much a low-key place, gradual and picturesque...good photo ops and a study in contrasts.
