The Korean Folk Village in Suwon is an open-air living museum recreating life in the Joseon period. Real dwellings were actually relocated to Suwon Korean Folk Village from other parts of the country to provide a realistic glimpse of how both peasants and aristocrats lived in the period. Various shows and workshops take place during the day including the traditional folk music of Pungmul that involves dancing and drumming.
There’s a lot to see at the Folk Village so allow at least half a day – it is ideal combined with Suwon’s fortress for a full weekend. Easily accessible from Suwon, there are free shuttle buses that run from Suwon Station (outside from exit 5) that run every two hours. Alternatively there are public buses or you can take a taxi (approx. 12,000W each way). The journey takes around half an hour. More details and bus timetables can be found here. Adult entry to the village costs 15,000W.
