Along with Hahoe Village this is a unique part of Korean history and culture. Well worth visiting - you can't see buildings of this quality anywhere else apart from Hahoe. Don't miss it - the photos do not do justice to the personal experience.

We visited this village on a very hot day. It is a nice place to stroll around and not much else. Truthfully we didn't make it too far into the village because our children were tired of walking in the hot sun. We mostly took a few pictures and admired the thatched roofs. There was a craft fair set up... More

It is a traditional Korean village. People do live there. I was there on the week day and there were not many tourists. It was lovely and wonderful.

Intact clan village from the 15th century. Great for a walk, to experience a slow and authentic slice of life.

We thought it would be an interesting experience to stay at a homestay in the village. It is not the easiest to do, since the website we found that lists the options is only in Korean and you have to pay in advance by bank transfer. Thankfully, the hotel in Gyeonju we stayed at (Sugar Motel) helped us with both... More

A bit outside / north of Gyeongju. Recommend visiting with nice weather, because it is mostly strolling outside. Unlike other folk villages, this one is actually still 'alive' with people living in it.

Beautiful, peaceful and authentic handok village. Well worth the time to get to it. This is not the phony Korean village near the art gallery, people actually live here.
