A nice place, but not in winter!

The impression of this traditional Hanok village to me is a quiet place. I went there on 24 Dec and of course I didn't expect to celebrate Christmas there. There are people living... read more

A traditional Korean live village, still have people living in but not just a park. Driving is a must, as it will need times to reach there if you take buses. The deeper you walk, you can see the real korean living style in the olden times. Some Korean restaurants are at the entrance of the village. You will need... More

One of the best places to visit during Fall for good scenery. A good taste of what old Korea used to look like!

The impression of this traditional Hanok village to me is a quiet place. I went there on 24 Dec and of course I didn't expect to celebrate Christmas there. There are people living there, but apart from a few tourists, I didn't see any villagers.(spending 3 hours there). You can see some cafe signage but there was no cafe actually.... More

If you are looking for a less crowded folk village to visit, Yangdong Folk Village located about 1 hr bus ride from Gyeongju Bus Terminal is the perfect place for you. This village was historical and famous because it was the birthplace for Son So and his families of distinguished scholars and ministers during the Joseon period. The village was... More

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

There are numbers of buses will bring you to the Yangdong Folk Village. But as far I know, it should be only bus number 203 and 252 will take you inside the village. I took bus number 200 for 45mins and got off a bus station next to the highway. Yes, it is a bus stop next to the highway!... 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.
