Traditional Homes

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.

A place where you could learn a lot about Korean's traditional live and their culture. The guide giving us the tour was hilarious and we had a lot fun in the village. It is a place worth spending time to visit.

It is interesting to see this authentic folk village that is the only one that still exist in Korea with people living there. Our Chinese guide allocated to us was good and she explained everything to us on their culture and how this village is sustaining. There wasn't so much of pressure that she pushes us to buy the products... More

It's an interesting village to visit as it's quite different to the ones on the mainland. Highly recommend visiting this village. You need at least 3 hours in this village to explore.

We went to this folks village on tour. For me, this village is very nice and i learn a lot of their culture. For example, as a Chinese, we celebrate Chinese New Year. The elderly will give red packets to us as a sign of good fortune. Everything comes in red during Chinese New Year. But in Korea, they will... More

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.

We travelled long way only to be told a short story on how the village people survive previously before we were presented their expensive products. 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
