Andong Hahoe Folk Village Day Tour

Discover the ancient cultural heritage of South Korea on a visit to Andong. Catch sweeping views from Buyongdae Cliff, learn about local art and culture at the Hahoe Mask Museum in UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hahoe Folk Village, and visit a Confucian school and temple. Lunch and round-trip transport by comfortable vehicle are included.

Hahoe Village (translating to “Village Enveloped by Water”) gets its name from Nakdong River, which flows around the town’s perimeter. The village is located at the foothills of Hwasan Mountain, an offshoot of Taebaek Mountain that rises up to the east. The center of the village is populated by large tile-roofed houses belonging to the Ryu clan, adding their own unique charm to the surrounding thatched roofs.

Hahoe Village boasts exquisite scenic sights: the elegant Nakdong River flowing around the village, the magnificent Buyongdae Cliff, endlessly unfolding sandy beaches, and lush, ancient pine trees. Visitors can take the boat to Buyongdae Cliff for a panoramic view of the village.
