  • About 11 o'clock I went in the morning. Accounted for quite a number of Chinese tour groups, but passed through the person in it, ate the chicken. Cotter feels more sautéed, garlic is pretty nice. Pancake pretty tasty samgyetang with various flavors and dishes eaten in two or more excellent popular restaurant than anything else I wanted, but that you are satisfied! I think not staying clean Korea works here and there is free Wi-Fi.

  • Admission is somewhat expensive if you went from how I am going to have to go back and have my parking is often cheaper in Medan on Timon or buy what I hope the inside is spacious than expected went by a lot of food from the not-so-expensive entertainment staff selling little play park, kinda long, but a lot of people didn't have a good selection of operative to families.

  • Awesome place to experience Korean tradition and culture. Visit to korean cultural village take back you to olden days and memories. Foreigners visiting Korean folk village please take audio trip or hire a guide or else it would be just a look around. Time your visit such a way that you can experience the performances. Stunts on horse and korean traditional music is not to be missed.
  • Went during a weekday and the place was filled with students on field trips. Entrance fee was 15000. Without a tour or audio guide it is hard to enjoy. The shows run in the afternoon starting at 2. The equestrian show was awesome and worth the price of entry alone. The shuttle from Sanggal leaves 10 minutes after the hour. This is a good place to take kids but not a must-see for adult travelers.
  • It's a great place to visit for foreigners. The shows are simple, but very very polished. The old houses etc. feel very authentic and the visitor infomation at all points is very good. They need to ensure their bull gets enough water, though.
  • This Korean folk village recreation is entertaining on many levels. There are traditional folk dance shows mixed in with hip hop. Be sure to catch the folk police demonstration where they invite audience members to experience traditional forms of punishment for criminals. There is also a small amusement park with rides that are just right for children between 7 and 12.
  • Quite expensive (15 000 won) but really immerging village. It's like of you really were in an old and typical Korean village.
