Korea Folk Village - Suwon

I will definitely recommend Korea folk village as one of the must-visit in Korea. It is such a beautiful place, full with performances to let us understand the Korean culture better.

To get there from Seoul, you need to take subway line 1 to Suwon station. It will take you about an hour. Once reached Suwon, get out from the subway station and walk towards the tourist information centre and check for the timing of free shuttle bus to go to the Korea Folk Village.

On the other note, Suwon is where famous Korean actor - Joo Won and soccer player, Park Ji Sung came from. :)

So there are a series of performance throughout the day in Korea Folk Village. Be sure to check the timetable and identify the performances that you want to watch. In my case, we didn't manage to watch all the performance as we are busy taking pictures around the villages.

These are some of the performances that we managed to catch up:

Acrobatics on a tightrope
Equestrian Feats
The scenery inside the village is just breathtaking

Traditional Korea architecture

Beautiful lake inside the village

I'm with the rooftop prince!!!

You can dress up Korean traditional costumes for free~~ thanks the theater performers who took photo with us, we are wearing the costume of the King and Queen~ ipeudda

Ma ma~

With the performers :)

There are traditional costumes hanging in the villages, we can just take it and try it for free

It's amazing that I can fit into this little carriage

It will take you a day to go around the whole village, if you're hungry, don't worry, there's a big food court for you to enjoy your lunch
Yum yum :)
If you plan to take the shuttle bus to Suwon subway station, do be reminded that the last free shuttle bus is at 4pm.
