Jeonju Hanok Village: Feel that Atmosphere

Read this post on TravelFeed.io for the best experience


Jeonju Hanok Village is one of the largest traditional villages in South Korea. The village contains more than 800 Korean traditional houses, so-called 'hanok'.

The village was designed in 2010 according to the International Slow City program. That made Jeonju one of the most touristic cities in South Korea. And it is popular same among foreigners and locals.

Let me introduce to you the most popular attractions in Jeonju Hanok Village.

Hanok Village

I think the village itself is already an amazing attraction. You can just walk along its streets and feel the history, culture, traditional life...

The atmosphere of the village takes you back to the period when kings were ruling the country when people lived in small houses.

Also, you can find different museums, cafes, even schools here.

Omokdae

Omokdae is one of the highest points in the village, so you can see a whole village here. During the Joseon Dynasty, its founder Lee Seonggae had an outdoor banquet after a victory over Japanese invaders at Hwang Mountains.

Jeondong Cathedral

Unfortunately, when I visited Jeonju hanok village, the cathedral was under reconstrustruction. So, I couldn't go inside it.

Jeondong Cathedral is a catholic church the construction of which was finished in 1914. And it is one of 3 catholic churches in Korea.

Gyeonggijeon

Gyeonggijeon was built in 1410 when King Taejong was ruling the country. It is a hall where you can find the portrait of King Lee Seonggae.

I will tell you about that place next time because I have many pictures to show you and to tell you.

Jeonju bibimpab

Well, attractions are not just buildings or historical places, it is also food! Jeonju is the motherland of bibimpab. The most delicious and real Korean bibimpab comes from Jeonju. So, if you visit Jeonju you shouldn't leave it until you try bibimpab.

Bibimpab is a mix of rice with different vegetables and pepper sauce.

Also, Jeonju choco pie is famous too. So, if you walk along the streets you will see many cafes with banners 'traditional Jeonju choco pie'. I am not a big fan of choco and choco pies, but of course, I tried Jeonju choco pie too. And I think it was a little bit different than those that we buy in the supermarkets.

I hope you enjoyed that small online trip. I have more stories to tell you about that city, and I will share them with you very soon.^^
