Andong & Gyeongju 3 Days Tour

Andong, the Cultural Capital of Korea

Andong Hahoe village has preserved the housing architecture and the village structure of the Joseon Dynasty. Moreover, the village was not artificially created; there are people who actually live there.
Three sides of Hahoe village is surrounded by the Nakdong River. Because the river swirls around the village, the village is named Hahoe, and is also called the spinning river village.


Next to Hahoe village are many pine trees and a soft sand plain, and across from it are beautiful cliffs. This village became known to the public by a Confucian scholar of the Joseon Dynasty (1392~1910), Gyeomam Ryu Unryong (1539~1601) and Seoae Ryu Seongryong (1542~1607) who had done great deeds during the Imjin War(Japanese Invasion in 1592).
Because the village is surrounded by mountains and water, it had never been invaded. This is the reason why these houses still remain in their original structures.


Hahoe village is also famous for the Byeolsin exorcism, maskdance and Hahoe mask. The Hahoe mask is the oldest mask in Korea and is used in the Hahoe Maskdance. Hahoe village became famous from the visit of Queen Elizabeth in 1999. Many events featuring the Maskdance are held.

 

The Capital of the Ancient Kingdom of Silla Gyeongju

As home to numerous Buddhist relics, Gyeongju is almost like an open-air museum, where the essence of Silla is vibrant and tangible. Relics and ruins include Najeong Well, a central feature in the birth legend of the kingdom; Poseokjeong Pavilion, the site where the Silla dynasty era came to an end; the seated stone Buddha at Mireuk Valley; the standing stone Buddhist Triad in Bae-ri; and the seated Buddha carved in relief on a stone pillar near Chilburam Hermitage.
