A place to visit

It is a really nice place. We enjoyed seeing the local Korean culture here in this village. A place worth visiting.

This is a great peaceful place to take your time to explore. We went on a Thursday so no mask dance, not many tourists either. We were fortunate to visit with a local who explained the buildings and layout to us.

This was meant to be the focus of our tour of Korea's east coast. the locals have certainly maximised the publicity of the village. It is a living, breathing modern village, with both ceremonial tea, and villagers walking around in traditional costume as they get into their modern cars. It is a lovely spot, no question, but it is both... More

Best way to experience Hahoe would be to stay 1 night at a resident there. We went to the information counter and they speak English. They recommended places for us to walk over and view and later return to them to make a phone call to arrange for 1 night stay. We paid KRW50k during winter season for 1 room... More

Very peaceful and historical village to stroll around and enjoy the views. Especially the traditional 'mask performance' is recommended. It gives an very good inside-view on the culture and makes you think about your own! Also a very nice mask-museum and marketplace for souvenirs and good food!

It does take 3.5 h drive from Seoul but you see a different side of Korea. You see the countryside. It is reminiscent of Williamsburg in terms of what this area looked like 400-600 years ago. Good history. Long day but worth it.

I went to Andong and the Hahoe Folk Village to watch the traditional Korean Mask dance. Hahoe is a little out of the way, it takes 45 minutes to an hour to reach from Andong by bus, but is well worth it. It's a very picturesque place with nice walking areas. It's interesting to see the contrast between the traditional... More

This village is almost surrounded by a branch river of the Nakdong. The descendents of a famous scholar Seongyong Yoo in the era of Choseon Dynasty still live there. This village is one of UNESCO natural heritages. You can stay at one of old tile-roofed houses. You should go to top of a hill called Buyongdae to look down the... More

Most people stop by for a day visit, but the beauty of the village is best appreciated early morning or early evening once the throngs of tourists have left. The options to stay are few, and not so easy to find online, but if you can't reserve ahead of time just turn up and tell the information booth at the... More
