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."

  • It's interesting just walking around the area, as many Koreans wear hanboks (the traditional clothing), adding a lot of colour to the area. There are many shops where you can rent hanboks as well as f...  more »
  • I have to admit this village is fairly touristy, but it's close enough to do a day trip here from Seoul. Enjoy the happy atmosphere, the crowds, small museums in the area, and street food.  more »

  • If you want to see some beautiful traditional architecture outside of Seoul come here! It is a really popular place among Korean, especially couple. Looks a bit like a touristic theme park though.
  • Historical places that full of adventures! You can try on 한복 han-bok, korean traditional clothes with a lot of shops renting them. Didnt know the price as I only made a day trip. Definitely gonna come again =D
  • Jeonju is pretty amazing. It's a city where Korean traditions are kept, cultures are preserved and people embraces them wholeheartedly. If you're travelling from Seoul, take the KTX train, which only takes 1.5h. remember to book this in advance. There is so many things to see at Jeonju Hanok Village. The first thing I'd recommend is to take a visit to the information centre, they're very helpful in providing useful tips (buses to take/restaurants to eat at/sites to visit). Next, get lost in this village , explore and have fun, there is always something to see around the corner. Whether it's a hanbok rental shop, or an old hanok, or even the rice wine alcohol museum, you will never run out of things to do here. If you're thinking of staying overnight, try staying in one of the hanok there, they are simple but very comfortable. I highly recommend this. Make sure to try the famous Jeonju Bibimbap (ask for a tourist guide book which includes a food guide from the tourist centre). My husband and I were absolutely blown away by this place and we'll definitely be back again.
  • Wonderful hanok village. All houses here were built and maintained following traditional Korean style consistently. Good for a weekend trip.
  • Popular tour site i. JEONJU. You can lend han bok that is korean traditional cloth so that you can feel another korean attraction.
