  • Korea Folk Village is around, but its especially large and has enhanced the program facilities. 上葛 station of the subway bundang line makes a little away from the center of Seoul, but okay. From this station taxi not cost so much. However, is the question of whether food come to this station, so leave a little time to start looking for taxi.

  • Great place to see old Korean Architecture. Different houses are on display which were owned by real people and have been brought here. The English texts and explanations could have been a bit longer.

  • 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.
