This has become a tourist trap, the houses look cool and there's a lot to see. But you have to look for it in between the souvenir shops and far from traditional food stands.. the road seems to be used as a racing track for electric vehicles.
Not really a Legid experience. But that seems to be a trend with these hannok villages.

So much culture and tradition packed into this village. Amazing architecture and incredible sights. A must see if you're in Jeonju.

We took KTX from Seoul to Jeonju for a day trip. The main goal was to visit the Jeonju Hanok village. We took a taxi from the station to the village; it was about a 15 min. ride only. The hanok houses have been well preserved and we loved walking inside the village. The atmosphere was good; there was not a lot of people in the morning. The old village creates a very unique scenery and bring you to a different time or period with many of the visitors dressing up and walk along side with you. Most of the visitors were young local people doing a day trip like us. Even though it seems a bit touristy with many shops selling goods; we loved it.

Modern Korea is very busy. People always seem to be in a hurry. A welcome contrast is Hanok village. The charming traditional houses, restaurants, shops and relaxed atmosphere offer you an interesting insight of Korean life, style and tradition. You will see many people walking around in the traditional Korean clothes. Make sure you have got enough memory in your camera or phone, because virtually every step is something interesting and beautiful for a snapshot. For the lazy ones among us there are eScooters for rent for a more convenient strolling through the village.
Unfortunately, there is almost no guidance in English for us foreigners. It would be good to understand the many signposts in the village and a little hint in English on the menu of the many good restaurants in the village would be extremly helpful. However, Hanok village deserves a five star rating and when you visit Korea you definetely should plan a visit there!

Jeonju is called a slow city by Korean people and I can see why. I live in Seoul and people there always move quickly and seem always busy while in Jeonju, especially the Hanok Village, people can enjoy the feel if traditional house and foods slowly and enjoyably. It is something that you can’t do at Seoul. Such a refreshing place to go!
