Lovely spot, very rural and peaceful (except for school kids ) but able to get away from this. Interesting construction and arrangements of the houses together. If time is available see the Hahoe Mask Museum and take the boat across the river and walk up Buyongdae Cliff for a super view of the village and valley.

We stayed at the Rak Ko Jae guesthouse overnight and so could explore the village in the morning while still empty of visitors.
The traditional house date back hundreds of years with some being still lived in today. The extended family that maintains the village has done an outstanding job in maintaining the Korean heritage. A visit there transports one back to the olden times and shows the Korean soul before its high tech make-over. Highly recommended.

Catch the number 46 bus from the train station or bus terminal, get off at the last stop, buy your ticket and catch the free shuttle bus to the village (1km away). Its a great little village to have a quick 1 to 2 hour stroll around. Gives you a taste of traditional korean housing and life, but you cant go into the houses. The riverside is also pretty. If you are in Andong and can spare an hour to get there and an hour to get back go see it.

Hahoe village is a wonderful half day experience in the Andong area illustrating the traditional Korean way of life that existed for hundreds of years before the westernization and modernization of the peninsula. However, it gets hot so bring sunblock.

I've lived in Korea for three years and I can't believe I've only just visited this lovely place last month! Unlike so many of the other Folk villages in Korea, this one is a genuine historical site with people STILL living there. (So please be mindful of that if you visit). I've been to other folk villages, which were certainly fun and interesting, but they had that fake facade amusement park feel about them. Hahoe, on the other hand, is a real community, still living and farming in thatched roof houses. (Being an anthropology major, I was in hog-heaven).

We went in February, so the ferry was closed, but we still had a great time walking around and there were so many great photographs to capture! And after having lived in the city so long, the mountain air was so crisp and refreshing. The view of the river and the cliffsides were enchanting too. We especially enjoyed the playground with those crazy suicidal see-saws and stand-up swings. And the prices for wood-crafts were quite good as well!
