  • Hahoe, is one of the best places in Korea to visit. There is a lot to do here and the village is more original than others around Korea. It really gives you a look at how traditional Koreans used to live as well as history about the area and Korea in a whole. Make sure to stop for some Jimdak and some of the restaurants close by and just walk around exploring the place. Most homes are still owned by people who live there so be respectful but you can also walk into a few of the more famous ones as well.
  • Its very lovely place, kinda far to go from Andong but its very nice. Famous for its mask, you can find traditional masks there. Its definitely something to do if you visit Andong. Also it can cold in winter because its very windy there. You can find some restaurant and facility inside and some shop
  • A walk through the village. Or you can rent a golf cart at the front. Stunning view from the beach. Beautiful pine tree forest. Sorry for my bad English.
  • Still a fully functioning village that became a popular tourist destination after Queen Elizabeth visited on her 73rd birthday in 1999. It is like a real life peek into Korea's history.
  • We went in May before noon and already melting away. Not that much shadow so prepare yourself if you go in summer. Lovely place though and definately worth the visit. Also the surroundings are great.
