We did not find anything great about this place to be honest. There was the tour guide giving a minor introduction of this village and we took some photos of the village from the top and that was all.

The guide told us the quality is good but we were not told elsewhere the price of the products are 50% cheaper. They said their horse oil treat allergies. I bought, used but it didn't... More

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.
