I went to this attraction by bus 46. The bus was delayed by about 15 minutes. No English signs in the bus. Fortunately, passangers gave me a hint when to get off. Foreigners pay higher price (3 500 KRW) than locals. You have to take a free shuttle bus to the village's entrance. The most houses are closed as they... More

Popularly known as the birth of Korea's Confucianism, this village is being preserved for its thatched-roof houses and villages. It's in a picturesque setting and quite beautiful during cherry blossom season.

We visited Hahoe Folk Village as part of a group trip. This is a World Heritage site, and parts of it were very interesting and beautiful, but we were bothered by the sight of AC units, satellite dishes and clothing hanging on the lines. There were also lots of cars parked in many of the units, and many more were... More

if you have visited other traditional village then there is nothing special about this place though the setting is very peaceful and relaxing. We took a taxi to get here as there was no tourist info center at the bus terminal and took us a while to figure out which bus and from where to take the bus. we paid... More

The village is easily accessible by public bus from Andong bus or train station (#46). Foreigners have to pay 3000 Won but unfortunately we were very disappointed. Most houses are "private" so owners don't you allow to enter. The rest are locked up or just messy places with a lot of garbage or other old staff. Walking around along the... More

A few quasi traditional homes clustered into a village with most yards locked so nothing to see that is educational at all. The riparian setting is lovely even in early spring before the blossoms but quite far from the town - 45min by bus.

It is a really nice place. We enjoyed seeing the local Korean culture here in this village. A place worth visiting.

This is a great peaceful place to take your time to explore. We went on a Thursday so no mask dance, not many tourists either. We were fortunate to visit with a local who explained the buildings and layout to us.
