  • And leaves on the whole, it was a very good season. Kindergarten, elementary school and senior citizen clubs? There were a lot of people travelling more, trying to see which buildings,, and. Round up and 1 walk and at the end. Dining room and the back to eat in the food court where there is and not dismissed, on the ground that overlapped State's kitchen. "Dirty" is 1言. When it was just a slow, sorry. Walk to 上葛 station, get off at 上葛 (sangaruhaya) station and the home arrived in about 10 minutes by taxi (3,700 dollars) was going to take a bus bound for Seoul from ethnic village entrance, but also because it was not walked. You could ride on the train without being especially to hour wait. This approach is recommended.

  • Put in the old village is full of lively and brimming with character, show, copy the feeling of pleasure was like a lot. Just a stroll to find the old mood was difficult. A lot of people. ..

  • Traditional Korean village and museum all in one. People get dressed up and walk around in traditional Korean outfits as well as museum staff work on traditional crafts while you are there. Ask nicely and they may allow a picture. There was plenty to see and few small shops ice cream and snack place. Recommendation to take plenty of water and a small fan. It gets very hot walking around outside. There is an indoor museum towards the back. Performances happen out by the courthouse. They are very entertaining but check on times before walking around.
  • Hmmm, this is a touch call on the stars. I don't regret going but I won't ever go again. First, for the price of admission I would expect the rides to be free but you have to pay extra. The food is overpriced and not very good. The shows are all in Korean and that wouldn't be so bad if they didn't rely so much on the banter for the entertainment because without it the shows are kind just okay (we walked away from one.) When we went half the shops weren't open and most of the others shut down well before the park closing. I was able to create some nice memories with my family but the costs of those memories were ridiculous. I think I paid close to $20 dollars for a bamboo flute. If you are a tourist I would seriously advise you to find another authentic village and skip the amusement park feel to this one.
  • Great place to visit. Excellent traditional korean village and museum. We can see people dressed up in traditional Korean outfits. Also live traditional crafts making. Overall a great place to see the old Korean traditions.
  • Great place. Not very tourist friendly - they do have a tour guide in other lauguages - however, the shows were in all Korean. So food signs did not have translations. But overall a great place to see how the Koreans used to live.
  • The park is quite nice and very interesting with many activities and shows. There is a huge village and even a small amusement park. The only thing that made me concerned is the animals used for the shows. There was a poor cow in a small stable with no water even though I told someone of the staff for it, so I gave her all of my water. The horses have no horseshoes and one of them had something wierd on her belly (like a huge tumor) and it was definately not pregnancy. There were also tied to the fence for some of them with no water....
