  • This is a traditional village in South Korea. The place is beautiful and attractive to visitors. Parking, toilet, food everything is good. Parking is bit expensive inside the parking lot. You can try outside the lot but not recommended as parking here & there is punishable. There are small auto car for travellers to look around but have to pay 30-35 thousand korean won per hour. Anyway, the experience is great. I would love to visit again.
  • This scenic little village is not obscenely overpriced trying to fleece tourists on every corner. Everything is moderately priced and is more or less fine in that respect. You can walk around the whole place in about a day but i would recommend two days to have a couple of different lunches or dinners or go back to a place you really enjoyed the first day you arrived. My only complaint is everything shuts at 10pm 😃
  • i like this place. ive just been there once. and i grew up in a rural side when i was young. so this place reminds me of my hometown. and there are a lot of restaurants where sell good food. you can have great food here for sure.
  • Let me tell you…perfect for fall weather. Try to stay off the main strip and avoid the souvenir shops. Lots of hidden streets to enjoy the fall leaves.
  • Cool stores and traditional everything. Clothing, dances, food and architecture. The atmosphere is almost as if you're not in the technological era
