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

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.

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.

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
