A tradition village
Sep 2018 • Friends
A successful businessman built these houses (18) village as his feedback to Kinmen hometown. The buildings are well kept and maintained to have the original style and architecture. Some houses displayed some old fashioned furnitures including a bride carrier. It’s a good place to visit to know the strong connection between Kinmen and Fujian through the architecture, furnitures and culture.

An interesting collection of turn of the century buildings
May 2018 • Business
This is about 16 buildings, including a school house, a temple, a family quarters, children's room, wedding site and a few little shops selling souvenirs. The buildings have various artifacts in them, not the best collection we have seen on this trip, but interesting for a half hour visit.

Interesting Place to Walk Around
Oct 2017 • Solo
Located on the top of a hill on Kinmen Island, the folk village is a great place to walk around explore the alleyways and abandoned houses, getting a good feel for local traditional culture

well-preserved houses
Jul 2017
Old houses are well preserved; serene and peaceful surroundings. One has a choice whether to walk around town or take a car. In our case, we had a private tour bus and the streets were wide enough to accommodate the bus.

part tourist trap, part interesting buildings
Nov 2015 • Friends
I went to the Kinmen Folk Culture Village with a few friends while visiting Kimmen for the day, and overall, this place is part interesting and part a tourist trap.

As soon as you get off the bus, the first thing you see are a bunch of stores selling trinkets and food. That definitely made me roll my eyes to start with, because so many times in Asia and Africa, "cultural villages" are basically just tourist traps for people to sell their wares. But at the same time, there aren't that many little knickknack stores like this at the tourist destinations around Kinmen.

Once you get past the stores, there's a rather intricate walking path through narrow alleys and old-style buildings. There is some tourist information in English and Chinese, so that's good that they at least allow you to know what you're looking at.

At the end of the day, there aren't that many tourist things to do while on Kinmen, so this is a fine option, but don't expect to be amazed.

Simply Splendid!
Oct 2015 • Family
There were 18 houses built into 3 rows backing mountain and facing ocean (The best “Feng Shui” 風水according to Chinese tradition) representing classic Southern Fujian architecture in 1900. This was the work by 6 master craftsmen from Tangshan (i.e., China). Wang Guo-Zhen and Wang Jing-Xiang, father and son, were the originals who built theses houses for their families in Kinmen and their hometown after they became rich in Japan. (They had sponsored the revolution of ROC Founding Father, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, whose IOU displayed in the small “museum” inside one of the houses). The construction was a 24-year project.
It is breathtaking just by walking through it and appreciating the details offered by our guide.

Nicely preserved old village houses
Oct 2015 • Friends
A small Fujian style village built by a rich overseas Chinese. Something like 18 ~ 20 houses had been restored and preserved for the public. A peep in the houses would appreciated the way local people live in the past.

One thing we like was that the place was still pretty much commercial-free, unlike the other "old villages" in China which had been over commercialized with souvenir shops and small restaurants in place of normal residential facilities.

Worth a go.

Great spot to soak in culture

We had an excellent lunch here - oyster noodles and all the Jinmen specialties. It was definitely an enjoyable place to walk around the old houses, do some DIY, and explore.
