Andong Hahoe Folk Village Tours

Andong Hahoe Folk Village
Located at a bend in the Nakdong River, Andong Hahoe Folk Village is a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by pine forests, sandy beaches, and dramatic cliffs and offers a glimpse of bygone Korea. Wander the village to learn about South Korean architecture and traditions that date back to the 10th century.

The Basics 
Hahoe means “enveloped by water,” and the village’s location at the river’s bend offers scenic views alongside historic buildings, many of which are still home to descendents of the Ryu clan who began settling here centuries ago. Take in the architecture and learn about the region’s history at the village museum.

Book a tour to the village to avoid navigating public transport—for which signs are almost exclusively in Korean. Tours typically include transfers and a traditional Korean lunch, and cover local highlights such as Buyongdae Cliff and the Goddess Samsin Tree. Multi-day tours often combine Andong Hahoe Folk Village with stops in cities such as Busan and Geongju and some of the region’s top national parks.

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • Andong Hahoe Folk Village plays a significant role in South Korea’s history. 
  • There are several restaurants and shops, in addition to public restrooms, in the village. 
  • For the ultimate Korean experience, stay overnight in a traditional hanok hotel in the center of the village.
How to Get There
From the central bus terminal in Seoul, you can take a bus to Andong, from which the village is another 50 minutes by bus. This is a lengthy process, so, if traveling from Seoul it’s easiest to book a day trip or multi-day excursion that includes round-trip transfers.

When to Get There
The village is open daily from morning until early evening year-round. For the least crowded experience, plan your visit for a weekday morning. On weekends, the village gets crowded with visitors.

What to See in Hahoe
Must-see sights in Andong Hahoe Folk Village include the Hahoe Mask Museum, which exhibits more than 3,200 Korean and international masks and offers a selection of mask-making workshops, and the Byeongsanseowon Confucia Academy, a sacred complex that dates back to the 14th century.

A traditional settlement dating back to the days of the Joseon Dynasty, the UNESCO-listed Hahoe Folk Village is considered among the top attractions outside Busan—but organizing transportation to visit solo takes time.
