We visited as part of our tour group. This was very interesting. You can see the old style houses. The way tools and shoes were made. The different levels of living standards based on a caste system.

Despite the rain, excellent fun. You can spend the day here, lots of coffee places and restaurants. Picked up some classic wind chimes, and they have shows for weddings, music, plays everything really. Get involved and dress up!

According to my guide, this hanok village is seldom visited by tourists as it is built more for educating the younger korean generation about their history and culture in joesan dynasty. Majority of the visitors are locals, only a handful are tourists. Inside the hanok...More

This is another huge village complex consisting of a market, folk, and amusement village. We just went straight to a portion of the folk village where we saw acrobatics on a tightrope walking and equestrian performances due to our limited time. Maybe next time we...More

This is worth a stop if you have time! There is lots to see; I especially enjoyed the quiet of the temple area while my young daughter enjoyed playing with the silks in the silk-making part of the village. You can do many hands-on experiences...More
