Seongeup Folk Village, Jeju

(2.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
See scenes of traditional Korean life at Seongeup Folk Village, a small, inhabited town that also operates as a government-funded open-air museum. The rock walls and thatched roofs of the buildings have a pleasant, pastoral look to them, while a large number of cultural points of interest, including Confucian shrines and schools, stone statues, and monuments, transport visitors back in time. Look out for the local black-haired pigs running around, a central (and by all accounts very nutritious) aspect of Jeju folk culture. Put Seongeup Folk Village into our Jeju travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This way was taken by taxi one day, but I wanted to go to Jeju Folk Village Museum. Is the last thing I think for the vending sales. Buy the liquid beverage Gomi tea wanted, this was only carry-on luggage so I gave up. Others are so expensive was accompanied by friend bought herbal medicine could only. The volunteers will explain how Japan language in good fun village go through. Had heard of vending sales will be better but...

  • a small village to learn about history and tradional culture of jeju. There will be a short introduction by local resident which is interesting. The culture and enviroment should be promoted, protected and preserved, but not to make it for commercial business.
  • It was dead when we visited (mid March 2017, on a Saturday). Would skip it. Did visit an artisan liquor maker where we purchased nearly 2L of a special type of rice wine for 15000 krw.
  • Quite nice to learn about jeju island history and culture. Quite interesting to see something that might not be found anywhere else. Very local very traditional....
  • Though korea is a modern country, the korean government has made this a heritage village to depict the way of life of village folk as it was several years ago.My visit to this place was informative, enjoyable and memorable.
  • Just a small tranditional village and the resident will enlighten the tourists with the way of life here. Later u will be sold some of the local products here.
