  • We enjoyed walking around the village and seeing all the Asian tourists dressed in rented traditional clothes posing for photos. Even the very cold weather did not seem to bother them! We wanted to st...  more »
  • Was there on a cold day with a bit of snow around zero in the air. Have warm clothes. Here rents most national difference costume that they use a day. Many restaurants and cafés (Korean). Many speak English. This is a place you have to visit, different from the Korea daily. Part Arts and crafts. The buildings are cow elaborate. Go there.

  • Good experience...stepping back in time especially in the architecture of the buildings. Food-wise, most are "normal" or over-hype. Staying in a Hanok house/room is another good experience. Be prepared for thin bedding on hard floors. In winter, the heated floors can also be too warm/hot.
  • Very great place to walk around! Make sure you come with an appetite!! There are many great food stalls and restaurants selling everything from street food to traditional Korean dishes. There is a small palace and a nice cathedral, all within the village, for more site seeing and picture taking.
  • Great place. Just a 1 day visit will work. Too many shops selling same thing over and over. The shops selling items is what makes the place so big. You can rent a Korean traditional outfit for the day and walk around.. Nice place. Careful.. The rooms to rent are the old fashion type where you sleep on the floor or they have a mattress. I suggest getting hotel outside in town. Worth the visit.
  • Step back in time, bring a big appetite, rent a Hanbok, visit food stalls, eat, shop, take great pictures and create memorable experiences. All this can be done in this one beautiful place.
  • It is a nice place with stalls that sell mostly snacks,but if you like peace and quiet,it isn't good because it's extremely boisterous sometimes.

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."
