  • Awesome. I came here when I was young and it wasn't this well-executed way back then. Now it's very cool and neat to see people in authentic costume at their respectable crafts. We got so lost wandering around the old homes and buildings that we missed all the shows!!!! However I do recommended coming on weekends. A lot of attractions were closed or limited because of the lack of visitors during the week.
  • Pricy, but a nice destination for a day out, definitely with kids. The park includes cultural/historical aspects as well as exciting rides/attractions. Furthermore, there's nice food to taste and guests are treated with impressive shows (from archery from the back of a horse to folk dances and tightrope walking)
  • Major traditional village in Korea. Vast territory occupied so that you may walk half of a day long. At workings day dozens of school busses park near the entrance at special area. Hundreds of children are on an excursion. The best seasons to visit are spring and autumn because of many trees and flowers around. Be prepared to long drive due to high traffic. Don't take food from home, they have a wide choice of traditional and modern food. There are also performances on several areas. Best place for family weekend.
  • For what it's worth, KFV was a pleasant experience at the time we visited around the end of February. The shows and entertainments were good, and there were various places to visit. If you feel hungry, you can also stop by a few shops inside for some food.
  • Do visit if you wish to know the Korean Folk life. Whole village has been replicated spread across huge area with houses of each person like farmer, Potter, noble man etc has been replicated. Also there are performances throughout the day in performance arena. Exciting place for children . Do come early if you want to explore all flavours if this place....
