Like a 12th Century Korean subdivision
Apr 2021
It was pretty cool. A bit off the beaten path, we enjoyed our walk around the old houses. Not sure if there was an exhibit beyond the entrance one (if there even was one there, which I think there was, but we missed it). We loved the little historical-looking house that we had lunch in. I will say this: not much English is spoken here.

We spent a few hours wandering around this village. Some interesting sites to see. Could use a little more signage perhaps

Perfect for offbeat travelers
Dec 2020
I like to get out of town and see things in further flung places. I love that this village is still lived in, so it didn't feel like a tourist attraction. I was really able to step back in time and feel like it was another era. The village hasn't changed much in 500 years. I'm really writing this review to tell you that there are so many busses you can take there, but my maps only mentioned the One bus that goes Right to the village which only comes every hour+. But right nearby is a place where tons of busses go. I don't remember them all, but the 600 and 700 go there and they are very frequent. I ended up walking 2 miles on my way there, and waiting forever for one bus on my way back, but later realized there were tons of choices. From that bus stop by the bridge and train tracks, you have to walk about 10 minutes to the village.

Village
Oct 2020 • Solo
It's a good place for a family trip. Kinda not that accessible for commuting since there is only 2 buses that really goes inside the village, if you want to drop off into a highway you need to walk for more than a kilometer. But transferring to a bus is possible. You can either take a bus from Pohang Bus Terminal or Gyeongju Express Bus Terminal (farther). As for the village, it is like a historical museum and village that offers tours, they have 20 minutes 30 minutes and an hour tour inside the village. There's also a convenience/cofee/souvenir store inside which is good.

We followed the day trip to come here therefore we only stayed 1 hour to look around, very rushing. Would suggest stayed more longer to explore the village.
Visited on Dec 2019.

Disappointed
Dec 2019 • Family
We purposefully arranged a tour to Yangdong Village, but it was very disappointed. There were no other tourists when we visited there. Obviously, it is a village, but only a few houses were original buildings, the others are new ones.

As UNESCO site, it should be well protected and no new buildings allowed in that area.

This traditional ancient Korean Village is one of must visit places if going to Gyeongju. The scenery is beautiful, there are people living in this area. This Village is between Gyeongju and Pohang.

Historic Village on a Hillside
Oct 2019
An UNESCO World Heritage Site, Yangdong village is a real current day village but the houses are from an earlier time with a thatch roof built in traditional style and ropes criss-crossed across them as part of the construction. The village overlooks the Hyeongsan River and demonstrates the lifestyle of the Korean aristocracy and the neo-Confucian traditions of the Joseon Dynasty. Schools were provided for the boys of the aristocracy (girls learned the arts and culture) but others did not have schooling.

Historic Village
Oct 2019
1. I wanted to see something historic.
So Yandong Village did not disappoint me as many of the ancient village houses were preserved.
2. Some of the traditional village e.g. Bukchon Village in Insadong, Seoul - are actually restored to replicate its historic style - and are now occupied by present day residents.
The Yangdong Village is not restored in that sense.
3. Learnt a bit of the Korean culture in history - like their fermenting of Kimchi in large pots, a pole is placed across their gate to signify that visitors are not to enter, we can recognise the status of the occupants from the different roof types on their houses
Not sure how the poorer folks back then survive the severe cold in winter.
4. Great photo taking opportunity to remember our time in Korea
