Introduction
==========
Andong

The Andong area has been known for its traditional culture since the Shilla Dynasty (668-935). The city itself acts as a good base camp from which to explore all the numerous cultural sites in the surrounding area. Many districts have maintained the traditional way of life for dozens of generations. Unlike some artificial tourist areas, these regions have continuously preserved their way of life, with families still living in and using the buildings on display.

 

Hahoe Folk Village- The 600+ year old village is truly a living museum as the inhabitants have maintained the traditional way of life through the generations.

Hahoe Mask Museum- The museum contains over 200 Korean masks and 100 foreign masks, concentrating on the Hahoe Pyolshingut T'alnori, the famous mixture of entertainment and shamanistic ritual for which the Hahoe area is famous.
