  • It is a village of Wall Sung Son and Yeogang Lee, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the outside, you can see that the town is quite large. There are many houses and accommodations, so you can stay in hanok and experience folk lore. But if you're just doing it, you'll have to pay an entrance fee. Also, the restaurants and shops in the town are closed at 6 o'clock, so it's a good idea to see the neighborhood and have dinner here. Because of such time constraints, it seems ideal to come in the morning and go out for lunch after watching.

  • History retained for some years. Peace ful place.. need to walk a lot
  • Unesco's pick! I couldn't see inner living place of some buildings because they really live there. But that point makes more attractive to me. I could feel real life there and they preserve the village. I love it :)
