  • Large area to cover, but worth explolring the village. I've learned so much things reegarding socioculture in jeju island. Audioguide rental do really help. Entrance fee a little bit expensive (11,000KRW)
  • It’s a nice recreation but don’t go on a Sunday. For what they charge there’s no activity or any shows or anything available. It was nice but boring and everything was pretty much the same. May be newer and a place where they filmed a drama but not much other than that. Maybe during week days? But seems highly unlikely. Not really worth what they charge especially since you have to pay additional when I get inside for anything interesting.
  • A very large area to cover with so many exhibits. Well worth a full day visit. Just be prepared to walk.
  • Interesting exhibits. Good place to go. Food stalls available within.
  • This is a good place to visit. We get to know the traditional living style of the people . The village shows different types of house, school. Tangerine farm is in the village too. Black pig also seen. XD We were there on 18th Dec 2017. Winter , cold. Less crowded. The air is fresh. We noticed the woodcraft workshop. There is 1 uncle who is the owner. This uncle is very nice.can speak little English. We bought a wood pendant necklace for our daughter. Uncle crafted her name on the pendant on the spot. 👍 The area is quite big. We walk slow and visit every corner and spend about 2 1/2 hours. It's worth visiting. We travel by bus 210 from Jeju City, the scenery along the journey is fantastic as the bus will pass by HallaSan Eco Forest which are full with white snow....it's amazing!! The bus drivers are very friendly and helpful but can't really speak English . So have to bring along the map .
