    Korea drama is love, and we want to go from the city bus stop, feel in Gyeongju high-speed bus terminal before arrived in about 30-40 minutes. Near the tourist office, so was also bus timetables. But do you know the bus stop was coming in with big roundabout and car parks already, so you see anyone! Charge to cash by card bus, so until the amount is unknown. Free guide to English and Japan, at the entrance of the village's, calls out, and very attentive to ride guides will. You can see Korea's historic homes, is very happy. It seems Korea restaurant. Want to see at least two hours and this is. Cafes, museums, photography to take a little bit more. Come have the time!

    Had a lovely visit here to see the traditional Korean buildings and life. You could wander around at will and they marked out 4 prominent buildings to see, though most you could only see the front. Unfortunately not many villagers around and most of the local shops were closed when we visited.

    Quiet village with traditional mud walled homes. Not very touristy which is great.
