  • From Suwon Station go by taxi. There is bus. In an idyllic landscape with many traditional buildings. You can see ordinary people's lives and the attractions!

  • As a k-drama fan, it was really nice to see historical buildings just like in the dramas. Everything was well organised with good signage in key languages including English. I was even surprised to fi...  more »
  • The old and archaic will split the village, but when you look at a lot of the kids that like elements. Play with the old cultural mood, even as the garden is also a great time to visit a good lighthearted attraction ride season is also the spring/autumn

  • This was just brilliant! Plenty of information in English, staff etc so no problems for a visitor. We went mid week and barely any crowds, but all the events live displays etc all happened. You can easily spend a day here exploring and watch the live shows etc. Then if the kids need variety there is a small carnival with rides etc. Oh and the restaurants even served good food. Really worth the effort to visit.
  • Very lovely open air museum. You can learn about the Korean heritage (mostly of the lives of the farmers). The shows ( Traditional Farmer's Dance, tightrope artist and Horse artists) are fantastic! In winter there will probably fewer people but there's the possibility of rain. In addition some workshops are closed (e.g. Pipe maker, I was there in February). The restaurant serves delicious food, try the rice wine. There's a water machine (it's free). I also recommend to take a look at the souvenir shop.
  • great experience! the shows are definitely a must see, preferably on a dry day so the dancers can do their thing. Walking through the folk village is pretty informative about traditional ways of doing things, and with the flowers in bloom the whole place is beautiful!
  • It is a very well designed place where you get to see all types of Korean historical houses from simple ones to noble people's houses. You can also find people dressed in traditional clothing performing different specific activities and giving you details about them. There are also shows that show special events like a Korean traditional wedding reinactment. Also the food court has very good traditional food. I highly recommend it.
  • Best and must visit place when u visit Korea. Great traditional Korean house in a complex. They also give some tourist attraction. Like a dance or Korean Traditional wedding. Fall season is the best time to visit. Colourful village with The real actor that keep walking around in the village. Like a real village from old Korea. Movies scene in the real life.
