Nagan Eupseong Folk Village, Suncheon

Travel back to the Joseon period among the thatched straw roofs and clay rooms of Nagan Eupseong Folk Village, a World Heritage Site. The village's clay and stone houses remain in their original condition, making this the best example of a fortress town in the country. Explore the uninhabited abodes and the large lotus pond, and walk along the fortress walls to the well-preserved castle for panoramic views of the village. Partake in various traditional craft workshops, including weaving, blacksmithery, fabric-dyeing, and a traditional musical instrument experience.

  • Beautiful place. Much better put together and more interesting than Hahoe folk village. It's a bit complicated to get to by yourself as a tourist but the local bus directions on Google are accurate. There's a lot of little things to see and great pictures to take so give yourself a full day here, stay overnight if you can. Across the street from the bus station is a very friendly restaurant with good food and good prices, family working there helped teach me how to eat Korean food properly. They were very sweet. I loved everything about Nagan.
  • Beautiful place, full of history. I loved it and I hope to visit again one day in summer. 😍
  • Beautiful! This place is cool. It is a village that has fortress. Can reach by bus.
  • I am really surprised that we can see an indigenous traditional village in South Korea. Instead of traditional house, there are some family remain stay there.
  • Nice place, we went there during Chuseok, there were a lot to see, to do, and to enjoy! Few restaurants in front of the place, a bit expensive but still affordable. Be careful with the buses that don't run that much, and the long waiting time..
