  • We arrived a holiday and it's packed with people, all dressed in the old. Exploring the less crowded streets and visit the Catholic Church at the end of the high street. You can admire the village in its entirety from the Hill, it's nice, police officers are mounted on horses...

  • At the beginning, it was the moonlight from the Korean cloud! No matter the evening or the morning is very tasty, the only regret is too late, so I did not wear Korean clothes, and can not go to the inside, but the evening is also very special, so the next time to find a way back to the Korean village experience

  • Nice vibes though touristy especially on weekend. You can see boys and girls in the Hanbook dresses all around the street. Lots of street food to try around the village. Recommend the croquet which is right next to the baguette burger store. It's the best croquet we have tried during our 3 weeks in Korea. One can easily spend at least an hour or two just to wander around the village and nearby area.
  • Jeonju's most well-known tourist attraction. While it's nice to see Korean traditional houses, the area keeps getting more and more touristy. Nevertheless, it can be a pretty nice place to walk around in with a significant other if you don't mind large crowds
  • It was better back then.. so commercialized now. But still has its beauty. Worths to visit once.
  • Super cute traditional village with surrounding tourist and artisan products. Every corner has a beautiful scene to take photos. Traditional dress shops are all over to rent and take pictures. Also amazing bibimbap restaurants
  • I've been to a couple Hanok villages and I have to say, this is my favourite! There are lots of shops around and not all of them are selling those gimmicky stuff you see everywhere. Get a map of the village from the Jeonju bus terminal (if you're arriving from there) to be able to see all the attractions available. Some are not open though, so do check the operating hours. The streams along the pathway are so endearing. Remember to pick up some chocopies from PNB bakery. They do have a couple of outlets here. It's definitely different from those boxed chocopies you get from the supermarkets. I didn't like sugary stuff too much but even the non low sugar ones are okay for me. There will be teenagers zooming along the streets on rented e-bikes especially during school holiday seasons so be careful.
