  1. Hanok Village & Gyeonggijeon

One of the main attractions in Jeonju is the Hanok Village, a traditional Korean village with well-preserved hanok houses. These houses feature beautiful curved roofs, wooden beams, and traditional courtyards, giving visitors a glimpse into the traditional way of life in Korea. The Hanok Village is a popular tourist destination where you can explore narrow streets, visit traditional tea houses, and try on traditional Korean clothing, called hanbok.

This is the view of Hanok Village from the parking lot of Hanok Village.

If you rent hanbok, I recommend you to wear hanbok and go to Gyeonggijeon to take pictures. Jeonju is home to several historical sites and landmarks. One notable attraction is the Gyeonggijeon Shrine, which houses the portrait of King Taejo, the founder of the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeonggijeon Shrine is wide and there are many good spots to take pictures that match hanbok, so you will be able to have a lot of great pictures. Enjoy Jeonju with Kids!
