Seongeup Folk Village, Jeju

2.7
#1 of 7 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.

  • Good sightseeing and i have enjoyed the climbing. good for health and peaceful. I love it
  • It's nice to visit the folk village and the stories the tell about the traditional activities and cultural here. But it was seem like they try to push the tourists buy there products as honey and horse bone jelly and linzhi mushrooms, which not original from here.
  • Interesting place but not particularly unique. Still having work done/being refurbished. Local guide was very good - well informed.
  • A very interesting place to see a traditional village. The fortress wall is a very nice sight to see, and they're are several historical displays.
  • Nice village. Its a location for korean drama.
