  • This was a fun and scenic place to visit. You can't go in the cottages as they are peoples' homes but you can walk the street and get a feel for an older way of life. The wishing tree is a place where...  more »

  • Very historic and cultural place in a beautiful setting. It is not clear what is fact and fiction though. Nice cafe closeby serving great local pastries. Also the market sold some good souveniers.
  • This place is awesome. Quiet and beautiful original folk village. Some people complains that the villagers don't let you in their homes. I find it totally normal, would you let strangers in your home?? And there's no need to enter the village is beautiful as it is. If you really want you can stay overnight in a hanok (traditional house) for a reasonable price
  • An interesting place to learn about Korean history and culture. A good half day field trip if your coming from Andong city. Be sure to carefully check your bus timetables before heading back to the city.
  • Beautiful place where you can walk around the traditional houses and temples is a great place to take a stroll..you will find few cafés or restaurants but they have little stands where you can get water or snacks..on the river edge they have swings and play sets for kids...you can cross the river via a zip line or boat and the walk to the top of the ridge for an aerial view of the village...good trekking
  • A traditional Korean village outside of Andong. Beautiful Jeoson-era architecture including tile-roof and thatched-roof houses.
