We were brought to this house with an old man waiting for us. He gave us a tour around his house and then started selling us omjia tea, honey, horse bones pill, horse oil products. And they range from 45,000KRW to 140,000KRW. I'm not sure if there was any way you could avoid this.

All these places are being preserved by the government to protect the rich history of Korea and Jeju. The place still has people staying there especially the old and young. The whole "village" is bonding as a big family which anyone has their main job to do. The guide will explain some of the daily things in the past with... More

The weather was very wet the day we visited which meant our visit was probably shorter than I would have liked. The guide was informative and the houses fascinating. Well worth a look and you can same the local honey based drink if you wish and possibly purchase if you want.

Initially, we were only planning on staying here for a few minutes to take some pictures because the reviews were so mediocre. We rented a car and drove to the entrance our GPS took us to (FYI if you rent a car and don't read Korean, make sure you get a GPS with it, Google maps/Apple maps/etc doesn't work in... More

Small local old village. There are several old huts for tourist to visit. Shops sell honey, traditional juice and facial cream inside those houses. Sales are very helpful to show direction of road. They speak fluent Mandarin.

Quite disappointed. Can skip this place as nothing much to see. Only tour guide explaining the history. Never expected a sales talk at the end. Keep on asking us to buy the local products. Horse bone @ 50,000₩, Horse Oil @ 55,000₩, Honery @ 50,000₩ and Tea @50,000₩.

The village house roof is made of dried grasses. Supported by strong wood. So no smoking allowed here. There are still people staying in the village. The stone man is a good luck and representative item in Jeju. It is believed that touching the nose may increase the chance of giving birth to a son and touching the ear may... More

I love this place and how I wish that there were a film shooting there....poor me😭😀. It was a long way to go there but as always it was worth it. If you like Korean Historical Drama Films that this place is must to visit.

This is a very small place. But the tour guide tells us a lot about the history of Jeju and the story of the stone statue. She is very funny and it is a pure joy just listening to her story.
