It was a long taxi ride away from the city center (Suncheon Station), especially as the roads were frozen. However, the view was worth the ride! It was a very quaint and quiet little village, perhaps we reached too early (we reached at about 9:30am!),...More

It was great to see a real working village where the old world is kept alive in a modern day. Many things to see like fortress walls that you can walk on and see the view, shrines, prison and homes with thatched roofs.

There are still living 200 people here. It is definitely worth a visit. You can walk on the wall to have a good overview of the village.

This was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a mockup of a village all recreated but this is the real McCoy..... It's mainly old people living here working hard to keep many traditions alive. Thatched roofs and small village houses and gardens are full of...More

We have visited this site last year end of November. This place is recommended place to visit if you are in Suncheon area. Get to the wall that surrounds the village from the north and you have spectacular views of the mountains and the village.

Definitely worth the effort to visit. As we were pressed for time we took a taxi from Suncheon (₩28,000) but the return bus home took 35 mins (₩1,350). We arrived at the village at 9.30 and pretty much had the place to ourselves. Its really...More
