First your guilde will pick you up at your hotel in Busan or Seoul at 07:30am. It takes 3~4 hours to get to Andong by car. As soon as you arrive at Andong city, you will look around Andong Hahoe Village.
Andong Hahoe folk village dates back to the Koryo period (918-1392) and is home to the Ryu clan. Surprisingly unlike other Hanok villages, the upper class and commoners lived in the same village. Hahoe, the name of the Andong Folk village, literally translates to “Village Enveloped by Water”.
Hahoe mask museum is a good place to see some of the historical Korean masks. In addition, you can buy some souvenirs. There is beautiful collection of masks from cultures all over the world.
After Hahoe mask museum, you will have lunch around Andong Hahoe Village. You can choose one of these for lunch; Grilled fish, jjimdak(andong Jjimdak-braised chicken with Korean soy souce), or Bulgogi.
Next, you will watch Andong Mask Dance performance if time allows. The Andong Hahoe Folk Village is the home to the ‘must see’ Andong Mask Dance Festival, hosted once a year in Autumn. The Korean Hahoe mask show has the typical characters like the Evil Stepmother, the Grandmother, the Monk, the Innocent Girl, the Joker, the Wise Men and the Drunken Men.
Lastly, it's time to look down the view of Andong Hahoe Village from Buyongdae cliff. This cliff on the far side of the river affords spectacular views over the village. You will go back to Seoul. It takes the same as we went to Andong by car.
