    I agree with the comments on the side "of attraction Park" If you come to the day... it's really fake if you stay on the main streets. A nice option is to walk in the neighborhood of the Hanoks close to the River, c is already less commercial. Regarding the near part of the Palace, from 6 pm it starts to empty and we can enjoy the streets. Obviously the su city leverage its attractiveness to make it a place of tourism. I don't think that we have done better at Mt St Michel, Rocamadour or heavy... Last point restaurants near the Palace (the Native Restaurant) is excellent and not expensive.

    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.

    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.

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."
