Being a big kdrama fan, one of the items in my bucket list for my trip to Seoul is to visit those cultural places I’ve seen in the drama. So on our second day, I decided to visit
at least 3 cultural places, and in this post I’ll be sharing with you some of the photos I took while we were in Korean Folk Village. Enjoy!
“Korean Folk Village introduces traditional culture from the late Joseon period to both local and international visitors through cultural classes experience, shaman faith, seasonal customs and others. Also, the village shows various places with unique features such as a farming village, private house, official districts, Confucian academy, seodang (village school), and a village street in realistic descriptions, as well as, a nobleman’s house and traditional workshop.” (source: visitkorea.or.kr)
May I add, few of my favourite KDrama was filmed in this place!
Note: this is just a first part of our day 2. 😀
Address: 90 Minsokchon-ro, Giheung-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do
경기도 용인시 기흥구 민속촌로 90 (보라동)
How to get there:
Since we stayed in Itaewon (line 6) below is the direction we took going to Korean Folk Village.
- From Itaewon station we got off at Hapjeong station (line 2 & 6) to transfer
- From Hapjeong to Gangnam station
- From Gangnam station, we took exit 6
- From exit 6, we walked straight for about 100meters (approx) to reach the bus stop
- We took bus #5500-1
- And get off at Korean Folk Village.
If you plan to visit the place, leave early from were you are staying as the bus journey from Gangnam is almost an hour, depending on traffic though. Plus, when you arrive early, you will have the place all by yourself. 😉 When we arrived only few fellow tourists were their, thats why we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place.
