We were in Gyeongju on a day trip and had earlier visited Woljeonggyo Bridge. Going across the bridge, you will come to Gyochon Village where the an old school and traditional houses are. You can still see the old well that was providing water in the past. Quite a few of these houses are residential properties but some have been converted for various purposes, including Choe’s family home, which was built circa 1779, which the public can visited. This village should interest those who are into history and architecture. Good to combine this with a visited to Woljeonggyo Bridge.

The traditional village had interesting tiled roof houses but after a while, seeing as many as 150 houses became boring. Most of these houses were occupied.
Those that you could enter hardly had anything inside.
You are there mostly to view the exterior of these houses. Be prepared to walk up and down the small hill as you view these houses from the outside. We took public buses to this village. It was 15-20 mins walk from the main road. Walking a distance to see the exterior of these 150+ houses, that were widespread, under the hot sun was quite a stretch for my teens. Be mindful of the timings of the public bus for your return trip. Find out at the entrance of carpark area.

We enjoyed much walking in the street of the village, beautiful Hanok houses. Worth to spend a few hours, especially during weekdays or early morning during weekends.

This is a really good place to get some activities. Me and my friends ate lunch here, also tried Hanbok for an hour and we had the chance to make bracelets. It was really fun since i was with my friends and the place is really friendly for families, groups and couples.

This is one of the most fun and exciting trip I've been is the Gyeongju trip. Gyochon Traditional Village is a place that you will enjoy visiting the old villages, experience korean tradition, and a lot more activities. There are traditional restaurants and coffee shops when you want to chill after visiting the place. I strongly recommend to visit this wonderful place of Gyochon Village.

This is a traditional village since Silla dynasty. There are some traditional restaurants in this area that worth to try. The scenery here is so calm and nice. Here, you also see Woljeonggyo bridge that across the Nam river. A should-try experience here is wearing hanbok and walking around. You will have so many beautiful and meaningful photos.

This is a very small village that is walking distance to main attractions such as the UNESCO tombs, the observatory, the garden, the bridge, the National Museum,and the pond. You will pass by through the village while walking from the Silla burial sites to the bridge. The village has some restaurants that sell decent pizzas. There are some coffee shops. What I found very Korean were the sweets, the tea places, and the house architecture. We enjoyed a delicious tea at a coffee site at the river. People were very nice! Locals took pictures with us!

This village is full of traditional Korean houses. Only 3 buildings are worth visiting, the rest of the buildings here are restaurants and places of business

Leaving the hubbub of the commercial streets with non-descript stores, these old-style houses (either well renovated or rebuild in old style) are a pleasure. Yes, it is commercial, yes, there are some kitschy souvenirs - but I also found a print artist, a small soup restaurant, a tiny cafe. Just go and meander!
