What We Love:

You'll soon be imagining yourself in the days of yore with a tour of Seoul's cultural heritage, from the palaces of royalty to the ancient homes of ordinary people. Begin with the beautiful pavilions and spacious grounds of Gyeongbokgung Palace, then your informative guide will lead you on a guided tour of the National Folk Museum to find out about the daily lives of Koreans spanning pre-historic times to the end of the Joseon Dynasty. Explore the peaceful grounds of Jogyesa Buddhist Temple before settling down for a traditional Korean meal. After lunch you'll experience a Joseon Dynasty throwback when you visit the Korean Folk Village. Walk amongst traditionally built houses, watch artisans in action at a handicraft workshop, join the audience of a folk performance, and even try your hand at traditional games such as arrow throwing and seesaw jumping!

thank you Klook. i will definitely book a tour with your team again.


I was brought back to the Joseon period the minute I stepped into the Korean Folk Village. It was constructed with the thought of showcasing authenticity of village life in that period. The brilliance of the architectures and the shows created a realistic and fun atmosphere.
