Korean Folk Village
Korean Folk Village information
Lonely Planet review
Around 260 thatched and tiled traditional houses and buildings from around the country make up this attractive folk village that takes at least half a day to look around. Artisans wearing hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) create pots, make paper and weave bamboo, while other workers tend to vegetable plots, and livestock.
Throughout the day traditional musicians, dancers, acrobats and tightrope walkers perform, and you can watch a staged wedding ceremony. Other attractions, including an amusement park and horse riding, cost extra. The village also has several rustic restaurants and a food court.
A free shuttle bus leaves Suwon’s main tourist information centre (30 minutes, every hour from 11am to 3pm). The last shuttle bus leaves the folk village at 4.30pm (5pm on weekends). After that time, walk to the far end of the car park and catch city bus 37 (₩1300, one hour, every 20 minutes) back to Suwon station.
