Ahem, five senses satisfaction, Goan Andong travel

Andong, Gyeongbuk, Korea

Andong, Gyeongsangbuk-do, is considered one of the first hands in the 'Korean Yangbango'. Known as 'the town of Hahoe Village', Andong is not only a traditional Yangban culture but also a popular folk culture such as Hahoe Mask Dance. Hahoe Village, Byeongsan Seowon, and the Gyeongsangbuk-do Provincial Office, which is nested in Hahoe Village, were added as the representative tourist attractions of Andong. Andong OLD & NEW travel.
Andong, Gyeongbuk. The vague feeling of 'far' may be due to the influence of space-time rather than the actual distance. This is because spaces such as Seowon and Hyanggyo stop at the time, including Hahoe Village in the Nakdong River. Thanks to the traces of our ancestors who enjoyed academics and styles, emphasizing righteousness and courtesy, we thought of Seonbi and Yangban in Andong.
Some ways to travel Yangban
Andong is said to have originated in Changnyeongguk, founded by Yeomsang Dosa in 57 BC. It is called Gotaya-gun and Gochang-gun in Silla era. Afterwards, he entered the Joseon Dynasty and was promoted to Andong-do. Daedohobu is the name of a local administrative agency that was placed in the main town of the Joseon Dynasty. In addition to Andong, it was installed in Gangneung, Pyeongan, Yeongbyeon, and Hamgyeong, Yeongheung. In 1896 (Gojong 33), Andong-gun was passed to Andong-eup in 1931. In 1995, the Andong-gun was merged into Andong-si. This is the reason why it has the largest area among the nation's counties.
Byeongsan Seowon from the side of the entrance hall
Therefore, Andong travel should be considered in consideration of the line. It can be divided into Hahoe Village, which binds Hahoe Village, Byeongsan Seowon, and Gyeongbuk Provincial Offices, Dosan Seowon, which binds Dosan Seowon, Toegye Jongtaek, and Andong City Area, which combines Andong Cultural Tourism Complex, Old Market, and New Market. This trip is a course that combines the Andong-gu market and the new market with a view of Gyeongbuk Provincial Government, Hahoe Village and Dosan Seowon. Of course, one night and two days can be enjoyed in order to taste Andong's special mackerel and hut jesak rice and enjoy Andong Lake's night view.

After entering Andong land, I first went to Gyeongsangbuk-do. The plan is to move to Gyeongsangbuk-do, Governor, Hahoe Village, and Byeongsan Seowon.
New Gyeongsangbuk-do Office of Information Center in Andong
You can stop by Gyeongsangbuk-do on the way to see Hahoe Village and Byeongsan Seowon. The visitor information center appears when you enter Gyeongsangbuk-do, which opened in March 2016.
Main office
Brochures as well as cultural commentators are available. The first floor of all buildings in the Metropolitan Government is open to outsiders.
Semi-circle modeled after Gyeongju Donggung and Wolji
There are buildings such as Gyeongbuk Provincial Council, Gyeongbuk Provincial Office, Welfare Center, and Multi-purpose Performance Hall, Sesimwon, modeled after Gyeongju Donggung Palace and Wolji, Saemaul Square, and Gyeonghwamun.
A large exhibit at the main office, the Brush of Seonbi
As you enter the main building, various exhibitions and shelters are welcoming. Leave everything behind and head to cafes and restaurants. Books filled with books are a great place to relax and have a drink. Internet and cell phone charging is free. In fact, I rarely come to the city to go sightseeing, but it's not enough to come to the heat in midsummer.

If it is easy to transport, backpackers will be able to search for travel information and recharge their mobile phones.
Book room with internet access and mobile phone charging

Andong Travel NO.1 Poongsan Ryu's Zipseong Village Hahoe Village
It is 5.7km from Gyeongsangbuk-do, Gyeonggi-do and Hahoe Village in 10 minutes by car. Hahoe Village, a 600-year-old village of Pungsan Ryu, flows in the 'S' shape with the Nakdong River surrounding the village. This is why the village name became 'Hahoe'. In feng shui geography, it is 'soft softening type' which is considered as the best road. It resembles a lotus floating on water. It is famous for being a good place for people to live in since Joseon Dynasty because there are mountains and rivers centering on villages. In July 2010, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Jong-ae Chung Hyo-dang of Seo-ae Ryu Sung-ryong
Hahoe Village is located 1.2km from Hahoe Village Marketplace. There is a shuttle bus connecting them. From 6 pm to 9 am, guests can enter their own vehicles for the guests of Hahoe villages temporarily. Once you enter the village, time travel begins. Many houses, including Hahoe Old House, are under construction, but the time accumulated along the dirt roads of the village remains.
Yang Jin-dang where Ryu Joong-young and his eldest son, Ryu-am Ryong, lived
Because of the town's shape, which is softened, it is heavy when a stone wall is piled up. It is good to take a map and look around every corner, but walking slowly and comfortably along the dirt road is a good way to travel to Hahoe Village. To get around Hahoe village properly, it takes from 2 hours to half a day. If time is running out, take the treasure Yangjin-dang (Treasure No. 306) and Chung Hyo-Dang (Treasure No. 414) that Hahoe Village holds. Yang Jin-dang was the home of Ryu Joong-young and his eldest son Ryu Un-yong, while Chung Hyo-dang was Jong-taek of Ryu Sung-ryong.
Ryu Tae-hyuk, who met at Yangjin-dang in Hahoe Village, said, "There are currently 112 households and 173 people in Hahoe Village. About 140 of them are Pungsan Liu."
Hahoe Village requires at least 2 hours to see properly
If you have time, you can look down Hahoe Village from Bouyongdae. You should take a ferry from Hahoe Village to and from Buyongdae. Contact 010-4154-1315.
Most of the villages are dirt roads because they might sink if the stones are piled up.
Byeongsan Seowon is devoted to the study in harmony with nature
Passing the volcano (271m) from Hahoe Village, it is Byeongsan Seowon. The beautiful Seowon, which overlooks the flowing stems of the Nakdong River, began in 1575 when Seo-ae Ryu Sung-ryong moved Pungak Seodang in Pungsan-eup. Ryu Sung-ryong's pupils and larvae set up his shrine here and became a formal vow. It is one of 47 vows and shrines that received the sum of 'Byeongsan' in 1863 and survived the Seowon Abolition of Heungseondaewon.
Baksanseowon Mandaeru in front of the Nakdong River
Passing through the Baptist Gate, the main gate of Seowon and Mandaeru, is the area of pedagogy. The entrance hall, where the director and the larvae gathered and discussed, is the most important building in Seowon. Myeong-jae Jae, the east room of the auditorium, resided by the director, and faculty members lived in Gyeongui-jae, the west room. Dongjae and the library, located to the left and right of the auditorium, are spaces where larvae lived. Standing on Daecheong Maru, the instructor is a spectacular view of the river and the mountains that stretch beyond the bay.
Mandaeru is unfortunately can't go up right now.
If you are drunk with nature and enjoy playing fresh, it is time to fill your hunger. Go to Andong-gu Market Steamed Chicken Alley. If you enter the front gate of Andong-gu market, you will find dozens of steamed chicken specialties such as Joongang, Eugene, Maeil, Woojeong, and Modern Steamed Chicken. You can enjoy Andong Braised Chicken, Andong Stewed Chicken, and Fried Whole Chicken. Andong Stewed Chicken minced vermicelli from Andong Braised Chicken.
Andong-gu Market Steamed Chicken Alley with Dozens of Steamed Chicken Houses
Andong Braised Chicken is a good size to eat, and the bone-cut chicken is cooked in advance. A large amount is not enough even if three or four people eat. The price is 25,000 won per head. Thanks to the generous amount and low price, it attracts a lot of light college students and beginners. You can adjust the spicyness when ordering. After the steamed chicken, the market size is a bonus. Don't miss the new market, which is a 5-minute walk from the old market. You can see Andong Gourmet Mackerel as well as see how it is made.
Andong Braised Chicken can be adjusted when ordering
