This folk village has it all for a day trip. The kids can make pottery and paint traditional Korean wood items etc for extra cost, however it's reasonable. There are shows at various times showing Korean traditional music, wedding ceremony, horse riding etc. the food is also quite good quality and reasonably priced. There are crowded areas and quite areas such as the Buddhist temple. Really worth a visit if you're in more of only to understand more clearly the rapid development of South Korea.

This was my favorite place of all the destinations visited during my short 3 day trip to Korea, especially if you are a fan of traditional Korean movies and series. It was like a living museum for anyone interested in learning and experiencing Korean traditional culture. You can experience a traditional wedding, battles, and other cultural shows while enjoying photo-ops in the backdrop of ancient buildings, the filming site for many historical dramas. There is a also a museum section that displays various aspects of Korea's rich history and culture.
From central Seoul, you can take a direct bus to Gyeonggi Do which takes you almost directly to the Folk Village. I connected the 5001 bus from Gangnam but am sure there are many other routes.

Went in June and the weather was perfect. We stayed for most of the day started our journey on the train for 45 min from Seoul Station hopped on the bus for about 20 minutes. Wear walking shoes. Enjoyed the traditonal houses and the gardens. The traditonal performances were nice and especially the tight rope walking. We watched all the shows and then went to the section where they have filmed historical drama's. They have cut outs of some of the actors had to take a few pictures since I know who the actors are since I am a huge drama fan!!

This place is huge. It needs at least three hours to enjoy their shows. We had a wonderful time to walk around the place. Because our visit was in the midst of MERS outbreak, we enjoyed a very rare occasion that the village was not packed with tourists. Even it is packed, it is worth the visit.
