Finally, we visited `Korean Folk Village` where is famous for everyone. I had been looking forward to go there for 2 weeks. I don`t know why the special day is always rainy day.
The `Korean Folk Village` became a major tourist attraction in Korea, because many foreign and Korean tourists flock here. We could see what the life of the Korean people was like. The village was founded by the Korean Government in 1973. It is located just outside Suwon City of Kyonggi province. It was about 2 hours from school by bus. In fact, it usually takes about 1 hour from Seoul, but the traffic jam made us slowly.
First explainer said that village covers 175 acres and there are more than 230 traditional houses, representing the unique styles of architecture of different provinces. I was surprised at the area, but also many houses.
