“It was very nice!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I read (other places) very bad reviews about the village. I was about to take it off the list. Im glad i didnt. Of course the place is not 100% original, they have to keep renewing it in order to preserve as muchas they can. I loved it, i even took pictures where my favorite Korean dramas where filmed!. Most of the areas are paved but it was great fo me since it made it easy to walk with the stroller.

“Small area but somewhat interesting”

Its only a small area where people are still actually living there! Not much to see but I was captured by the fields filled with yellow canola flowers! ITS BEAUTIFUL!

“A must place to learn the Korean culture”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Well, this place was big. Need to prepare to walk if you're going at non-peak hours. Why? due to the train not moving.

This place features Korean village, cultural show, donkey / house riding, costume trying & a beautiful setting to get some nice pictures. We enjoyed solid 1-2hours walking. But having to travel with small kids its quite tiring.

Anyway, the replicas of houses & setting was great. Enjoyed buying some quality souvenir at the gift shops. My kids just love the small maze park. I don't op for a tour guide but a head set was just enough for us to make us understand the place.

One thing for sure they're snakes wandering around the place. While walking we come across 2 snakes (small). My kids was terrified! So need to be extra careful for those who bring little kids. Another set back was the small shop selling fast food. I know there's a barrier problem in language but they seem to ignore foreign tourist due to the fact we cant communicate well with each other. Very hard to buy stuff. Water! walking makes you thirsty.

Pro's :- The head set helps to understand the place even-though not so many point haves explanation. Perhaps its an area for improvement.

Con's :- Snakes? Yikes

Overall the place was ok. But will not come again..

“A remarkable museum.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This collection of old houses and replication of villages was fascinating. One could really understand the way of living in the old times when getting up close to the stone construction and thatched roofs and garden plots. This is a perfect walking area for anyone and especially families. As an added bonus the little restaurant on site was reasonable for local dishes.

“Historically captivating”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This site explains everything one needs to know about the island's historical past. It has a long walkway leading one through outdoor exhibit areas, each section with attendants who can give information. There also was a traditional musical performance available to view. It was chilly when we were there, so we left earlier than desired, but if we had known there was a cafe in which to warm up and perhaps have lunch, we could have made a day of it. One perk of going in February was that the crowds were very, very small here, and at other locations.
