Seongeup Folk Village, Jeju

2.7
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Jeju
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.

    Came here by tour, would only recommend if someone is explaining the history of the village to you. The price of the products they sell maybe slightly overpriced so so take note.  more »

    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.

    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.
