Korean Folk Village reviews
It was a good visit. We took public tranport and arrived at 1030 and only left reluctantly around 5pm. It deserves a whole day visit. We visited the village 1st - english signs help us to appreciate..... more

This place is very far away from city center. It is also a challenge to get there by public transport. Unsurprisingly, it is not touristy given its location. It was quite empty when I visited...

Don't really go there expecting to see an authentic cultural experience. It's more of a theme park in a way (they actually have legit amusement rides). The photo spots and village setup are gorgeous and will keep you busy. The food is a bit on the forgettable side. The shows and performance are entertaining and worthwhile to schedule around it.
Nice experience, and the park has many attractions for people of all ages, but we struggled to communicate with the staff. At their local tea shop, at the souvenir shop, at the ticket counter and at the restaurant, no one is able to explain anything to you. Also for us it was very difficult to get there, maybe there are simpler ways, but following GMaps suggestions were very tricky.
What a great cultural experience for the whole family. You get a great value with the admission price. We spent 5 hours walking through the whole site, riding horses, making gourd containers, mini museum, and amusement park. Try going earlier in the morning to the amusement park and avoid long lines. Save some money and pack some snacks for a picnic.
I strongly recommend this place to tourirsts. This Folk village bring us a very good chance to explore the traditional customs, lifestyle and habit of people in the past time in Korea. I find so many interesting things here. Also this place has a huge greenery and nice environment.
We place to visit! Went on the last day of 2022 and the dances were very cool. Also went into the haunted house which was ok. Traditional food was good also!
