This is a great village to wander round and get a glimpse into how people lived on the island many years ago. Some houses are actually still used, but have obviously been modernised to a certain extent. Quaint and it sort of seems artificial but then you realise that actually some of the houses people are living in now are... More

The folk houses built well imitating earlier century jeju do livings. You can experience the way of living of older jeju do resident. Kinda way of knowing and understanding of Jeju resident. The living plant and animal were well maintain.

I think it's an very attractive place to visit where you will learn the past and culture of local. The Korean drama Daejanggeum was filmed here as well. We also have chance to have a very nice bulgogi lunch there.

The place is nice but not a must. It sure shows you some korean culture, there is also korean restaurant and other food spots like natural hallabong juice (orange) which I really liked. All I can say is that if you are a fan of korean culture, go; if you are not, I'd rather go to the beach, falls.

Many of the interactive segments were closed but it was still interesting. A beautiful sunny day allowed us time to stroll and take in the grounds. Lucky to come across an artist who worked wonders with wood.

A great place to learn about past Korean living. There are old Korean village homes to visit, relive how the Koreans lived before the modernization took over. Only beef I have about this place is that on the weekends, all the shows are cancelled. In the U.S., people usually go to places like on the weekend and there will be... More

Our guide added this on to our tour as we had a bit of time free, and it proved to be very interesting and informative. You wouldn't need a lot of time to visit, so maybe an hour or 90 mins would do, but proved to be a lovely insight into Korean life. We particularly liked the story behind the... More

We had a very good time discovering the different houses that corresponded to different areas of the island and different social statuses. The re-enactement was excellent. Very relaxing stroll, beautiful landscaping.
