  • This site is very impressive and the story of the preservation of the writings of Joseon is meaningful. This area is a bit commercial, but they make a nice effort to point to history in the buildings and activity. I was impressed by the Koreans who rent traditional Hanbok clothing for the day to walk around and take photographs. Nevertheless, a young Korean woman in traditional Hanbok with blond hair is somewhat a personification of an oxymoron.
  • Well preserved piece of local history. The place is clean and offering some good sights for taking photos.
  • Good place to feel Korean history
  • Great story around this historic relics. Recommended! Tour guide will make your trip successful in terms of learning about the tradition and architecture.
  • A quick tour is sufficient to see the whole palace.

Where to stay in Jeonju

For an authentic Jeonju experience, you can stay in one of the traditional "hanok" guesthouses in the historic district. Although these usually offer an affordable option, prices can rise significantly during peak holiday seasons. Many mid-range hotels and inns can be found in the Gaeksa neighborhood, while the budget-conscious traveler has a wide variety of choices, from hostels and dormitory-style B&Bs, to inexpensive "love hotels" and even a traditional Korean sauna, known as "jjimjilbang."
