    It's worth a visit.
    When we had a discussion, we only decided the place "Jeonju Hanok Village" and traveled recklessly. As we just arrived to Jeonju Hanok Village, we could see people walking the street with wearing their hanbok. What’s more, there are so many attractions like church, café, Korean traditional architecture called “Hanok”, etc. We all agreed that the best part of Jeonju Hanok Village is nightscape and walking a night street in romantic mood and magnificent view blew our minds. Also, famous restaurant Veteran noodle and PN bakery are locating near the village, which are worth a visit in your lifetime once. One thing that’s bad is the price that can’t be said to be cheap. That’s all.

    place to take pictures
    If they want to take pictures with antique atmosphere, I’d suggest visiting Jeonju Hanok Village. There a many hanok, which gives some antique atmosphere. You can rent hanboks around you. In addition, you can purchase food, which is simply enjoyable at the nearby food stalls. It has the advantage of having many backgrounds where you can take pictures to make memory with your family or lover. However, if you don't like taking pictures, there are disadvantages that things to enjoy are drastically reduced. And the food sold at the stalls is a bit expensive compared to the quality or quantity. If you like taking pictures with the ambiance of hanoks, I highly recommend it.

    a great landscape
    If you ask me, the one place you really have to go to is Jeonju Hanok Village. Jeonju Hanok Village is one of the most famous tourist spots in Jeonju. Most of the buildings here are hanok. You can experience tradition by wearing hanbok, visiting cultural heritages, or participating in experience programs. When it comes to food, not only restaurants that serve Korean foods, but also various street foods are famous. Also, the landscape is great, which is suitable for taking good pictures. Especially, the night view is beautiful, so I recommend you to walk on the street at night.

    Jeonju Hanok Village is located in the city center of Jeonju, where traditional Korean tiled-roofed houses are gathered. This place is currently the most famous tourist destination in Jeonju. The Hanok Villige is unique, which attracts a lot of tourists. In the Hanok Village, you can experience the Hanok Stay at the Hanok House. If you go on a trip, you will be able to feel a different atmosphere than the hotel you normally stay in. Also, it is a big feature that you can experience various street foods. There are many things to enjoy in the Hanok Village, such as Gyeonggijeon Hall, Pungnammun Gate, Jeondong Cathedral, and Omokdae. Hanok village is recommended as a place for family travel.

    Costume Drama in the Amusement Park
    If you're not a fan of amusement parks with fast-food stands and shooting galleries, you might find Jeonju Hanok Village a bit surprising. Much of the ancient town has been transformed into a tourist haven, where shops renting out traditional costumes dominate the streetscape. Many visitors choose to rent these costumes to capture themselves in extravagant attire - quite amusing, actually. I wonder if South Korea's booming film industry is influencing this trend, where everyday people aspire to star in fictional dramas themselves? It's highly recommended to explore the less touristy side streets, which exude charm. But overall, you'll probably breeze through Jeonju Hanok Village quickly - unless you stay at one of the many guest houses in the area.

    Traditional Village Architecture & Cultural Experiences
    This beautiful village has over 800 traditional Korean style houses called Hanok. The most noticeable features are the tube tiled roofs with sloping curved corners, raised floors and sliding doors made of wood and paper. Other than the roofs, the buildings are made predominantly of timber, which gives the houses a very charming look. Although many of the houses have converted to shops, cafes and restaurants to serve the huge flux of tourists. Many of the houses remain residential and just adds to the charm. There’s also several cultural and crafts performances and documentaries which are worth checking out. The tourist information office near the car park has times. Buildings worth checking out include Gyeonggijeon Shrine, Pungnammun Gate, Jeonju Hyanggyo Confucian School and the museums to the south-west of the village. It’s really worth staying for at least a couple of nights in a traditional hanok house to get the full experience.

Lovely village where you can appreciate people wearing traditional clothes and you can eat delicious local food.
If you are in Seul and have the time don’t miss it, is a two ride and there also are tours that can take you there

Drawing up in Hanbok was ethereal
great for 1 day or 1 night
Tea gardens have amazing tea - do try - if you watched k drama - this all the more comes alive
Do try the craft store / and the Dalgkna store after squid games
Try the street food ie bread of korea -
Each place has its own version of gimibap - truly a gastronomic experience
found the hanok room really small - this is usual for korea - the floors are heated -
easy reach via bus to bus station or train station - t money card works and very useful .
uber and naver works

Beyond touristy and commercial. There is a very small area that is nice looking and the rest is over the top 'Joseon gimmicky'. Step outside these narrow hanok street bounds and you are quickly confronted by quite rundown areas with trash lining the streets. Jeonju seems more hype than substance.

Picturesque and easy to walk around. Lots of little shops and points of interests. Nice to fill in 2 to 3 hours. Interesting architecture.

Very touristic place. Like a huge shopping area in a hanok village concept. Nothing cultural and no point to do on a day trip from Seoul.
