  • A former visit to this site only allowed me 20 minutes to explore one single street. This time, I stayed overnight in one of the many guest houses in the village, and had time to wander the streets, s...  more »
  • We left Seoul in the morning just to visit the Jeonju Hanok Village, considered by Unesco city of gastronomy. So true! Everywhere there are restaurants and snack bars with options for all tastes and pockets (stuffed baguettes, assorted skewers, cookies, Korean BBQ, etc). The houses with typical roofs are conserved and form a set. Part of the charm comes from people who rent old clothes and are walking around town. It's like a "back to the past". Unfortunate that there is no information in English, and at the tourist information counter also we can't much because the attendants didn't help anything. The map q distribute in English does not have all the streets. I wanted to go to a specific restaurant and I couldn't reach him. It was worth it, even though I was a little disappointed. To go by train, is the 1:50 of Seoul. Beats and very quiet.

  • Jeonju tourist hustle and bustle, but many who look at the position, where the original intro itself looked relatively slack that would feel the slack than other tourist destinations are Seoul chuckles. But the fun of eating in the street, rather than a tourist walk.

  • It's an ok place when compared to other folk villages in Korea. Somewhat commercialised with most hanoks now turned into hanokstays or food stores. Need to be careful of the two wheelers that whiz around the village. Parking can be a problem.
  • The architecture of the building is beuatiful and the place is clean. Too bad the village is not that big. You can only explore small area
  • Small hanok village keeping the look and atmosphere of the traditional Korea. It is the main touristic attraction of jeonju. Plenty of restaurants, shops to rent hanbok, guesthouses with the appearance of hanok....
  • Overall very nice! I stayed at a cheaper place with less amenities, but allowed for more spending on the great food here. Truly a food capital of Korea
  • Really interesting place to stay...night stay in traditional korean homes is a great learning. ..there is an opportunity to wear korean folk dresses...the food is delicious here....a park where silla dynasty archives are stored is near this village...the archives are a UNESCO world heritage site
