Andong Hahoe Folk Village Tours

8 Reviews
Hahoe means “enveloped by water,” the name given Andong Hahoe Folk Village due to its position at the bend of the Nakdong River in the foothills of the Hwasan Mountains. Far from the modern skyscrapers of Seoul or Busan, the village offers visitors a glimpse at a Korea of old.

The village, one of several that comprise the UNESCO-listed Historic Villages of Korea, dates back to the 10th century, when members of the Ryu clan began settling there; descendants of the clan still live in the historic homes today. The village is unique in that commoners and the upperclass coexisted there, and you’ll notice that the tile-roofed houses of the elite toward the village center gradually give way to thatched homes toward the outskirts.

Practical Info

To experience the village at its best, plan your visit for a weekday morning. On weekends, the village gets overrun with visitors and loses a bit of its charm.
