Quite disappointed. Can skip this place as nothing much to see. Only tour guide explaining the history. Never expected a sales talk at the end. Keep on asking us to buy the local products. Horse bone @ 50,000₩, Horse Oil @ 55,000₩, Honery @ 50,000₩ and Tea @50,000₩.

The village house roof is made of dried grasses. Supported by strong wood. So no smoking allowed here. There are still people staying in the village. The stone man is a good luck and representative item in Jeju. It is believed that touching the nose may increase the chance of giving birth to a son and touching the ear may... More

I love this place and how I wish that there were a film shooting there....poor me😭😀. It was a long way to go there but as always it was worth it. If you like Korean Historical Drama Films that this place is must to visit.

This is a very small place. But the tour guide tells us a lot about the history of Jeju and the story of the stone statue. She is very funny and it is a pure joy just listening to her story.

This was the last stop of our tour so the sun was setting by the time we got there. I recommend coming in the morning for good pictures. It was quite solemn, cold, and eerie because it was just the tour guide of the village, our tour guide, and the rest of our group in the area. The assigned tour... More

This location is quite a nice place for photo taking , the only turn off is that is there are some mixture of areas where the houses have modern features so it can look weird at times.

We had a guide to explain and tell us about the history of jeju and the way of life of the people that lived there. It is an eye opening experience, visit this place to have a better understanding of jeju island.

We were there with a tour group and this itinary was compulsory. Interesting to understand the history and a better understanding of the culture. The guide of the village was obviously a Chinese but they spin it to say she is Korean (didn't see any)! Sold products after the talk and items were not cheap. 360,000 Won for the Horse... More

I am thankful that I was not born a woman in Jeju back in the day. Whilst their husbands lounged around like kings they literally did everything. Some great insights from a man who still lives in a traditional house.
