  • We visited Yangdong-ri Folk Village on a drizzly, gray day...perhaps the perfect day to wander around out of the sun. The existing, ancient dwellings were a marvel of classic Korean style architecture...  more »
  • The house level of the Lee dynasty age remains as it is completely. While people continue to live as they were at the time, the entire village is preserved as a valuable folk resource. Traditional two-team houses and thatched roof houses are lined up. There is a museum at the entrance of the village, where you can learn about the origin and history of the village.

  • History retained for some years. Peace ful place.. need to walk a lot
  • Unesco's pick! I couldn't see inner living place of some buildings because they really live there. But that point makes more attractive to me. I could feel real life there and they preserve the village. I love it :)
