#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Jeonju
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Take a visit to PungnamMun and admire the last remaining main gate of the huge historical complex. See the engravings and admire the way the well-preserved gate was decorated centuries ago. Moving on from the southern gate, you can explore the small onsite market, where you can buy food, clothes, or souvenirs. If you visit at night, you can enjoy the view of the complex illuminated by numerous little electric lights that give this place a dose of additional charm.

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."
