Interesting but not a must. The village tries to explore the way of life in the past. Not to impressive.

We got a very nice tour from a local resident who spoke fairly good English. It was very interesting to see how the huts were designed and the durability of the thatch roofs. There was a sales pitch to buy some locally made tea and other products (which were very expensive) but no one bought anything. You would think that... More

I liked the walk on the small streets among small houses without chimneys. It was a protection against pirates in the past. We were group so no local guide came to sell us whatever.

The Seongeup Folk Village is huge. The main entrance has a big car park and a side entrance where you can drive your car in. Besides the car park, there are many restaurants, two public toilets and a few shops. From the main entrance, you can take a stroll and check out some of the conserved buildings which are open...

Nice feeling as you walk around the quaint little village which are still lived in by residents. There was a free tour given and tour guide spoke English. Ended tour with a little presentation of the products sold by the village. Good for a 1/2 day adventure.

Interesting site to learnt about the earlier settlements of Jeju island. Be prepare to walk for an hour or more in the large estate and bring lotsa of water. They preserve the huts pretty well. There are mannequins but with REAL LIVESTOCKS.

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
