This folk village is more spread out (and hillier) than Hahoe, but is very interesting and peaceful. It's a short drive from Gyeongju. A late afternoon visit was wonderful.

This was a highlight we did not expect! A small 'traditional village' in the hills outside Gyeongju. We took the 203 bus, (1200 won) about 45 mins from Gyeongju using the bus stop near the Gyeongju train station, there are several buses that come here, all 20x. The driver will tell you where to alight. Then a lovely 10-15 min... More

Easy to get to from Gyeongju (bus 203). The village contains some old houses that you can go into to visit, but it is not a relic as people are living there. Quite interesting.

We were with a large tour group and an English guide so we had no difficulty getting here. The village is active, with people living in it. You can walk around and different areas are open to the public at different times. It was interesting to see the Korean-style homes and how they were constructed. There are lots of hills... More

This is an old village dating back to the Joseon dynasty, unlike those in Gyeongju that are from the Shilla era. I went there by bus, about 50 mins northeast of Gyeongju centre. From a bus stop near the Gyeongju train station, there are several buses that come here, all 2xx. See photo with map and bus schedule below. In... More

This village is little far from Gyeongju downtown. I drove my car about 3-~40 minutes from Gyeongju downtown. There are some bus. Pohang is also very near from this village so It is better to visit this place when you go to pohang. Actully I imagine some ancient silla's history(because every historic place in gyeongju is from silla...) but it... More

This was a great find. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the village looking at the gardens and homes and felt that were in a scene from Lord of the Rings. Would recommend Yangdong over HaHoe.

We found getting to Yangdong by bus from Gyeongju a little complicated because of the general infrequency of buses to the village. We definitely checked with the visitor's center about when return buses arrived, so we weren't stranded! The village itself is very serene. In good weather, it was very nice to stroll through the fairly large area. You will... More
