Andong (안동) in Gyeongsangbuk-do, is well known for jjimdak (찜닭) a mouth watering spicy steamed chicken, Mask Dance Fastival which is held every year, Hahoe Folk Village where you can actually see and feel life around 100 years back and Andong is the home of Confucianism in Korea. During the Joseon Dynasty, Andong attracted scores of Confucian scholars becoming a pioneering city in Confucian thought. This city also contained the highest number of private schools from the Joseon Dynasty as well as Confucian schools. To this day, Andong still has around 26 private schools from the Joseon Dynasty. This city also acted as a home to the noble class during the Joseon period. Now with all these attraction who wouldn’t visit Andong specially when International Mask Dance Festival is Going on.
Hahoe Village was my First Destination, Only one Bus no 46 will take you there from Downtown of from Andong bus terminal, during festival its hard to even get on the bus. But once you are there you will forget the bus ride and will be amazed.
