Reviews of Yongin

A city located in the Seoul area, famous for its theme park, folk village and temples.

My suggestion:
Whether you are looking for tradition or for thrills and excitement in the Seoul area, Yongin is the place for you.
My review

Everland Park will delight young and old. It offers three distinct themes, including a water park and a zoo. There is also a botanical garden. 

Contrasting with this modernity, the Korean folk village has reconstituted the traditional houses of both the working classes and dignataries and displays different tools and handicrafts. It's an interesting visit if you don't have the possibility to go to an authentic folk village or if you only have a few days in Korea.

Wawoojongsa Temple, which is barely 50 years old, was founded by a refugee monk for the reunification of the two Koreas. There are several thousand Buddhist statues, including the largest wooden Buddha in the world, and statues of Buddha from many different countries, for a discovery of different cultures.
