We did enjoy visiting this place , since there is more attractions offered when we were there. Besides it is the shooting location for very famous serial film Korean . The places is more artistic with all the houses have roof made from dried ilalang like in Balinese traditional house. It is worth it to visit compared the Hankok village.

This village is huge with about 85 households left staying there. Traditional built houses can been seen with fortress walls around it. Not only is it rich in history but very well preserved. Worth a visit definitely.

It was a village of traditional huts with roofs made out of straw framed by an imposing fortress wall built to fend off intruders in the past.You can find out... More

I've seen too many Korean folk villages. This may be one of the best, but don't OD on these places. It was raining when we went and that didn't help.
