Hotels with great views and excellent facilities are awaiting you.


The village is located on a really steep hill so please beware the path. After walk, you can take a rest and enjoy the rice terraces views from the coffee shop here. Please remember visit this place during Spring (May-June) because you can only see the best color in Spring.

It takes at least 6 hours drive from Seoul to this village, maybe it takes too long to reach this village, so we recommended you visit other famous places along the way from Seoul for at least 2-3 days. Apart from the rice terraces, Jeonju Hanok Village, Damyang Bamboo Garden, Boseong Green Tea Plantation and Yeosu Maritime Cable car are very very popular and beautiful places to visit.
