  • Traditional Korean houses in hanok . Many shops for one to try Korean hangbok and walk around the village . The origin of Korean dish bibimbak started here and the dinning in hanok is well known world...  more »
  • One day trip I would recommend, about two hours from seoul using the ktx, we will arrive in the city this winter, and snowfall does not discourage newcomers and young Koreans to come and have the experience of using itinerant village hanbok ❤

  • The city remains of old buildings (Hanok). Went over the weekend, but tourism tourists already so many main street is also walking barely did. There were many stalls Several shops of Choco pies originated in Jeonju. Many people dressed in folk costume and stroll, there were many rental shops. ATV and bike rental. And, one more than the main street going into the Street outside the old atmosphere. Night market is 19-and there were many food stalls. This is the number of kuraikurai the shop can't spit-roast, steak, lobster, and samgyeopsal rolled in seaweed, sundae (sausage) and so on, all around. Long lines at popular shops, 10 minutes and waited for about 20 minutes.

  • Really nice place to visit! There were tons of shops selling so many things! A riot of color. There's also a famous church and palace as well. My favorite part was the bibimbap restaurant across the road from the church. It's supposedly one of the best bibimbap restaurants in the region and it certainly lived up to the reputation. We were very lucky that there was a table open!
  • Love this place. We've done two photo shoots and plan to do more. Such a fun place to tour with family.
  • 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.
  • Good food and a great vibe. So many people dressed up in Hanbok and enjoying the very traditional Village. Also lots of coffee shops to go to along the way.
  • I've been here 3 times so far...the food is good and it's always lovely to see everyone in hanboks for special occasions. I really enjoy the history that surrounds this place.
