  • Visit the village is not enough, he must sleep there. Careful we don't eat in the village, at least not in October. We were received very simply by a couple of full attention. The fruits of the garden and agricultural production are widely enough to replace breakfast. Think about dinner just before coming to stay in the village, the small restaurants on the road leading to the village of delicious grilled mackerel. Cross by boat to the point of view which overlooks the village and the river.

  • Yes, okay, it is a UNESCO heritage site. But it is also 1 hour away by public transit bus #46. So that is 2 hours of your day gone, and if you are only in Andong for 1 day, that is significant. Sorry,...  read more »
  • An essential visit in a beautiful old village, it is true transformed by the sores of the region. Calm, serenity, flowers? Allow 3 hours of visit.

  • This is a great historical village in which the local people still living there, and try their best to keep its original face and natural style in every aspect as much as possible.
  • The most complete folk village I've seen in Korea. Well done
  • Beautiful old village to wander around and see the cherry blossoms by the river. Hiring an electric bike for 15k won was well worth it too!
  • I went there in March 2006. Although Hahoe is famous for visiting Queen Elizabeth II of England in 1999 and the former US president George.W.Bush in 2005. But I think Nak'an folk village in Suncheon is more folksy than Hahoe.
  • Very nice to get in contact with history
