You’ll be picked up from your Seoul hotel in the morning and taken by air-conditioned coach through Andong to Buyongdae Cliff, located approximately 3 hours away near the Taebaek Mountains. From the summit, get an amazing bird’s-eye view of Hahoe Folk Village; you’ll learn how the name of this cliff, meaning ‘lotus,’ is said to reflect the village’s configuration of a lotus flower. Continue driving through UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hahoe Folk Village, a traditional village from the Joseon Dynasty, and visit the Hahoe Mask Museum, dedicated to mask culture in this region and throughout Korea. Tour the museum with your guide and learn about what each different mask represents, as well as the history of mask dances. Head to a local restaurant for a lunch of regional specialties and then continue driving to Byeongsan Seowon, a Confucian school established by esteemed scholars to pay tribute to notable Confucian personality Seong-nyong Yu. Your guide will explain how this temple is one of 47 in Korea not destroyed in 1868 during the rule of Daewongun, a Joseon-era imperialist and politician. Your last stop will be Bongjeongsa Temple, the largest temple in Andong. Relish the unique, elegant atmosphere as you visit several towers and buildings including three-story Stone Pagoda. After your time here, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel or the shopping district in Seoul, whichever you prefer.
