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.

This was meant to be the focus of our tour of Korea's east coast. the locals have certainly maximised the publicity of the village. It is a living, breathing modern village, with both ceremonial tea, and villagers walking around in traditional costume as they get into their modern cars. It is a lovely spot, no question, but it is both... More

Best way to experience Hahoe would be to stay 1 night at a resident there. We went to the information counter and they speak English. They recommended places for us to walk over and view and later return to them to make a phone call to arrange for 1 night stay. We paid KRW50k during winter season for 1 room... More

Very peaceful and historical village to stroll around and enjoy the views. Especially the traditional 'mask performance' is recommended. It gives an very good inside-view on the culture and makes you think about your own! Also a very nice mask-museum and marketplace for souvenirs and good food!
