South Korea’s village of Hahoe, home to the Hahoe Mask dance

Hahoe Village Andong

The historic village of Hahoe is home to the famous Hahoe mask dance and attracts curious visitors from all over the world. The village is located about 268 kilometers to the southeast of Seoul in South Korea and is a well-preserved home of the country’s traditional culture. It comes as no surprise, then, that this is the place where the iconic Hahoe masks originated and it is also a fantastic place to see them still being used in dances.

Three things to take when traveling around Korea - and three to leave behind

Fellow blogger Nomadic Chick recently blogged about what works and what doesn't in her travels.

MUST HAVE #1: Entertainment. An iPod Touch holds enough music and games to keep me entertained on even the longest bus or train rides. Finding an outlet while out and about may be a challenge, but you'll always have one in your hotel room for the night. Note that a good book, a Kindle, an iPhone, or other similar things will work as well.
