A rather large village, of what we were allowed to see maybe two "houses". A very brief history was told about the place, before we were yet again, ushered into another hut, only to persuaded into buying some super magical powder tea drink. I politely refused.

The village has preservations from time past. It made for a pleasant morning walk through the village. It's used much for filming of historical period dramas. One gets to see, close up, relative size et al, a little of what life was like 100 years ago. I enjoyed the bright golden sunshine, flowering trees and the beautiful voice of our... More

Nothing much here, just a folk village and they have kept it well for tourism and filming location. It is also said that stuff selling here is without tax.

Service⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Experience⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Value for money⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🏆Highly recommended Folk village was great and authentic but the guide was probably the best attraction. Funny, witty and playful, the official guide for the village made us laugh continuously for the entire time we were there (probably to make us feel obliged to buy their honey and umija tea). Their honey is 100% natural... More

We joined Yeha Tour and this is one of the stops. Good information, humor house owner. Do not buy the house oil which cost 40000 won. It is similar to Guerisson 9-complex which costs less than US$20 when you buy from lotte duty free Jeju

We did not had a chance to really walk around the village due to the on-going construction. Only manage to explore the front part of the village. There are students who volunteer themselves to walk you through the history of the village. Quite an interesting one. At the end of the sharing, they also do some selling.

Interesting to see the way the old buildings were built nut was a tad boring. I thought we'd see people making things in the old methods but most of the buildings were empty. Not what we thought we'd see. With the lack of time we had a Jeju I would have preferred to see something else.

This is an old town but still several family lives in. The lady who sells special fruit tee and supplements talks funny and we enjoyed a lot.
