Seongeup Folk Village, Jeju

#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Jeju
See scenes of traditional Korean life at Seongeup Folk Village, a small, inhabited town that also operates as a government-funded open-air museum. The rock walls and thatched roofs of the buildings have a pleasant, pastoral look to them, while a large number of cultural points of interest, including Confucian shrines and schools, stone statues, and monuments, transport visitors back in time. Look out for the local black-haired pigs running around, a central (and by all accounts very nutritious) aspect of Jeju folk culture.
