  • Absolutely love the Korean Folk Village. This was my 3rd time visiting. Each time I go, I find more and more things to enjoy and many more reasons to return. I'm already looking forward to going again. We really enjoy the equestrian show and the harvest dance. The tightrope walker is also pretty amazing as well. Definitely a must see❤❤❤
  • Nice place to walk around and experience Korean tradition. There's something for everyone. I went there in winter so there were only few people and not all stalls and attractions were open. But it was still worth it. I enjoyed the calm.
  • Very interesting place. Great examples of traditional Korean living, songs, ceremonies. Has a nice food court with different styles of food and snacks, and even a small amusmement park area for children. Prices are very reasonable and almost all signage is in dual language with English being on it as well.
  • A great place to visit if you're in Korea and obly have 1 day to travel. They have 2 option for the entry one with theme park and one without. If you don't have little kids I suggest to purchase regular ticket. You can purchase and try many korean traditional food, learn about their culture, and purchase souvenirs. Many attraction throughout the park (free and paid) so plan your visit accordingly.
  • Love the large open areas. The food was pretty good and moderately priced, especially dor a tourist attraction. The Korean Folk Village is lots of fun for the entire family, both local and foreign. There are equestrian shows, tight-rope walking and traditional dance shows. Beautiful scenery and traditional crafts and tradecrafts. and of course....traditional buildings!!!!!!

Where to stay in Yongin

The main urban area of Yongin remains fairly modest, running east-west following the metro line. You'll find some fairly standard hotels, along with business class options, located on the streets around each metro station, as well as a couple of side street guesthouses. Really, most visitors to Yongin come to play at the amusement and water parks, maybe see a museum or two, and then return to their accommodations in Seoul, or in other cities that surround the capital.
