A chartered taxi for 5 persons cost 120,000 won from the Vistacay hotel area. This area is very far and one definitely needs to charter a taxi to this place as it is very difficult to get one. All taxis there are chartered.

A wonderful recreation of traditional living in South Korea with working areas, small demonstrations, food and gift shop areas. Very informative displays and examples of traditional life. Very worth the time, small entry fee and effort. Great day out.
