  • Visit here if you have free day out from Seoul!. The transportation is very easy we just take express bus right from Gangnam. Nice ride and comfy. The park is huge, make sure you take map and see the ...  more »
  • Air-conditioned cabin also features a food court, but I liked the river is only one 'Pavilion', a story. From the crystal clear water flow cooling air enters the mosquito is not even in midsummer was wondering. Food vegetables, miso, rice is balanced in the fields of the village seems to have been made. Megurasemashita the imagination and could move in the day visited a record downpour, but conversely under the Arbor makgeolli 2 hours so you can enjoy, on the old yangban were having lunch this way.

  • The entire experience was pretty good, with the performances being an almost must see thing. Marriage ceremony is the only one that should be skipped. Food is not that expensive and toilet is excellent. Only issue I have is with the shuttle bus timing, which is not very ideal. If the shuttle bus timing is better catered to tourists then it will deserve 5 stars.
  • Absolutely loved it! Not only does it show historical aspect of Korean life, but makes them fun and enjoyable. The actors roam around and do their part very well. (In case of a beggar I saw..too well). They do shows as well, of which I saw 2 of. Both of them showed the performers incredible skills and was very entertaining. Place has decent English translation for the most parts, but having a good knowledge of Korean will make experience better. (For example 5-6 lines of description in Korean is reduced to just a couple of lines in English/Chinese/Japanese). Also actors in the villages obviously speak Korean so if you are to mingle....well you need to talk the talk. Definitely a place to visit. Try to get there using shuttle service which is free. I took taxi which cost about 14000 from Suwon station... because I didn't know this. Oh well.
  • You can be a time traveler here. Back to the past! Clean and neat display of old houses. Try some korean culture activities there. Lots of parking (₩2000) spots available. However I am not a big fan of theme park next to the folk village.
  • We spent an entire afternoon slowly exploring this village. We must have gone on a school field trip day because the village was packed with children and their teachers. This will crowd up the food court area at the back of the park (which was not very good). All the traditional houses were very interesting and written in English as well as Korean. There are even interactive sets that were locations for famous TV shows that you can sit in.
  • This is a must see if you are touring South Korea. Reconstructed village houses and buildings, amazing performances, fantastic restaurant. Friendly helpful staff.

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.
