  • A must visit here. You can purchase the map of the village where you collect stamps of all the sites you're supposed to see. Makes it a bit more interactive. However, there aren't exactly clear signs....  more

  • This village was built during the Korean war by the refugees from the northern part of the country. It is colorful and lots to see. Many photo zones can be gound.

  • Amazing day! Just know up front, there’s lots of snack opportunities…would have like a couple more sit down eat places. But, understanding what the village is, no problem. Very unique heritage, and super clever way to show off the culture. Loved the stamp idea and the excellent t map to get us through the villiage. Be prepared to walk up and down the hills. Go with a curious mindset and you will have a great adventure!!
  • Super amazing, colourful place. You can find iced beer and grilled food here. Loved the air, small houses, clean and beautiful alleys and long stairs. There was this stamp game going on, the day I visited. Didn't participate in it, but it was quite fun looking at them running around for clues while I was sitting under a shade, drinking and eating with my friends and some local old folks. Highly recommended to all!
