Description

Drive about 3 hours from Seoul and arrival at Andong, a town with the background of natural circumstance and Confucianist culture in Gyeongsang-do Province. First, we will visit the Byeonsan Sewon. It was a shrine and local education center which was established in 1572, and extended in 1863 in order to commemorate Confucius, the founder of Confucianism and Ryu Seongyong, a scholar and prime minister of Joseon Dynasty during the Japanese invasion(1592-1598). After a short ride and walk, you will stand on a hill called Buyong-dae. On top of it, you can overview a fantastic view of Hahoe Village, a ravishing village seeming like a lotus flower surrounded by a river. The Andong Hahoe Village is a UNESCO cultural heritage. Walking through the small alleys enclosed with short walls and various types of traditional houses, you will feel peace and stillness in this 600-year-old town. You can also confirm the patriotism of Rue Sungyong, and hearing of their friendship, we drive down to the prime minister who contributed to save the country from an alien attack in the small museum(Chunghyo-dang) and locate some memorable sites visited by celebrities like Queen Elizabeth the 2nd and President George Bush. Try vernacular dishes here such as steamed chicken with sauce, bibimbap with soy sauce, noodles and salted mackerel. Especially as you visit this town in mid-April, you would not leave this alluring old village, going along a riverside filled with cherry blossoms ravishing enough to catch your eyes.

Coming back to Seoul we drop byWoryeong-gyo Bridge(Moonlight Reflected Bridge). This longest as a wooden, pedestrian bridge in Korea was restored based on a ever-lasting love story of a couple.
