It was a good trip despite the very cold December.
You will need to take the shuttle after buying your ticket. The shuttle brings you to the entrance. I was recommended to started with Hahoe Mask Dance at the outdoor theatre. There are heaters.
It was educational for me. The performers did their best despite the cold and i enjoyed.

The village itself was average. Not sure what was happening, there are vehicles here and there at the houses.

Beautiful place,
Traditional houses, mask dance performances. We stayed in Andong for one day travelling in from Seoul ( Cheongnyangni )via KTX Eum the journey was around 2 hours 18m. There is tourist information at the station. From the KTX station in Andong you can walk across to the bus station which have the buses to Hahoe folk village and other sites such as Weolyeonggyo ( the moon light bridge) .

Note the KTX or bus station is not in the town. There are lockers in the bus station for luggage. You will need loads of change😀. We got to there just in time for a mask dance performance. We the rest of the day walking around the village. We took the bus back to the bus station and took a taxi ( we used the kakao taxi to get the taxi) to Andong gurume resort 1 night stay so that we could photograph the moon light bridge) . Traditional place to stay we had a Hanok house to ourselves. ( we used papago app to communicate with staff as didn’t know much English and we didn’t know much Korean. They were very helpful) . We used Navermaps to navigate as Google maps doesn’t work there( tip- search what you want in google, copy the korean word in to navermaps to navigate). You could walk down the bridge from this hotel( some effort required walking back up😀). We had a Korean dinner at one of the restaurants near the bridge , delicious.

I would like one more days stay to visit other sites in Andong but we had already booked a place at our next location Gyeongju.you can take a bus from the bus station near the KTX to Gyeongju.

Unfortunately, almost of shopping and food closes at 7 mm or even earlier. All the attractions for which most tourist would come are the 3 historical villages (Hahoe, Gunja, etc) So they are located pretty far from each other, So you will not be able to visit them all in one day. So if you want to visit all them plan to stay at least for 2 full days.

This is a real place that avoided destruction by being inconvenient. Thatch roofs. Old style pre-20th C layout. A place to learn about masks as well as rural lifestyle. One can stay here in upgraded houses, as do some residents. Food, snacks available. It was warm in May, not much shade.

A unique cultural experience that left a mark on us. Outside of the city rhythm of life, the village conveys a mood and feeling that originates from different times. Spend a couple of nights at the village, try to get accustomed to the routine there and you will not regret it. I would also recommend having a nice coffee from the wonderful gentleman Mr Kim Gi Young at the entrance of the village on the left.

I would recommend visiting the folk village for anyone looking to get away from the bustling city, looking for more nature, and looking to explore historical hanoks and traditional mask dance Korean culture. The staff at the visitor center were welcoming and helpful, and they had maps and informational brochures in various languages. Some highlights include the daily mask dance performance in the amphitheater, a guided tour of the village, the 600+ year old tree, and the pine forest along the river bank. The landscape is gorgeous and breathtaking!

There are also a handful of activities/sites to visit on the edge of the village including the Mask Museum, cafes and restaurants, the Confucian academy, and the “observatory” overlook point on the other side of the Nakdong River. My friend and I stayed in the village for 2 nights, and that allowed us to have a peaceful morning to wander around the village before additional tourists arrived for the day. Something to note is that many if not all of the shops and restaurants in the village and near the village entrance (where you pay admission to enter) did not accept foreign credit cards so we paid for everything in cash. Furthermore, it seemed that most of the restaurants closed by 19:00, so if you plan to have dinner in the village, be prepared to eat dinner before then.

A world heritage village where people actually lived. Not as large as I thought this making it easy to see everything. There are English speaking tour guides available if you are lost. A nice lady spend almost 2 hours sharing with me the various homes of the noble. Apparently, those houses with tile roof belong to the 'rich and famous ' while those with straw roofs belong to peasants. She also brought me to the 600 yo tree where you can make a wish. Be sure to walk through the pine forest on route back to the entrance. Right across the benches is Buyongdae cliff. Unfortunately, the boat is not operating. Not sure if it low season or if its due to the season. Best way getting there is from Andong Bus Terminal (not intercity or express bus terminal) and take bus 210 which looks like a tourist bus but is actually a local bus. Alight at Hakoe Village stop, just after Hakoe Village entrance stop. Take the free shuttle pink bus and you are on your way.

Andong Hahoe village is one of the most famous Hanok villages, the village itself was beautiful, I loved how peaceful this village was. The houses, autumn trees, and scenery were really beautiful. There are a lot of interesting performances to see such as talchum, Korean traditional masked dance in the village. I also got to see an amazing sunset from the Buyongdae cliff. It was truly a sight to see!!

Hahoe folk village is very beautiful, especially in the autumn season with colourful leaves and traditional-style Korean houses. we walked around the entire area for 1 hour, and we could also watch mask dance performances. The place was so calm and quiet and it was different from the other folk villages I have seen so far. I enjoyed the visit and I wish to go there again.

Hahoe Folk Village is a great place for all ages young and old, families, and those traveling alone. The village offers many different views and experiences from a 600 year old tree to the reenactment of the Hahoe Mask tale. Prices are reasonable: 1500₩ for kids, 2500₩ for teens, and 5000₩ for adults. A shuttle will take you to the village after you buy your tickets. The village still has many residents, please be respectful. One of the best houses to see is the Bukchondaek House, it is the oldest house to the Ryu family. **once you get off the shuttle, stop by the information booth (international) and see if there is someone that speaks your language. Many young people are ready to practice English and other languages. I went on a slow day, and was able to tour the village with a young English speaker...it was awesome! Good luck and have fun!
