Jeonju Hanok Village

If you want something similar to the popular Bukchon Hanok Village in Seoul, then this place is for you. It is a bigger hanok village where in you can rent a hanbok outfit and walk around in it. We stayed here for 3 hours and honesly, it’s not enough! I personally liked this place so much and would love to go back when I visit Korea again. Our tour guide recommended for us to eat the PNB Choco Pie which is a popular snack in the area.

What you can do/try/see:

  • Rent and wear hanbok and go sight seeing
  • Get your Chinese zodiac sign fortune
  • You’ll see lots of traditional Korean houses
  • Eat Jeonju Bibimbap and PNB Choco Pie

The Traditional Korean Houses

A giant boulder engraved with “Jeonju Hanok Village” is located right in front of the village entrance. It’s seems like a popular spot to take your photos. Here are some cute ajussis having their group photo 🙂

Chinese Horoscope

You can get your Chinese horoscope here. You have to change your Korean Won (I forgot how much it was, but it was cheap) to a token. Choose your zodiac sign, deposit the coin to the machine, twist the knob, and it will give you a red ball. Please DO NOT use the hammer beside the machine – it is not for cracking it open. We did it this way and we really felt funny to know that we just had to twist it to open. WARNING: The horoscope is in Hangul. Have your tour guide translate it for you, which we never did.

Around the Village

There were a lot of people wearing their Hanboks and just roaming aroung the village. We saw some kids with their teachers taking photos. They’re really cute!

Jeonju Food

Jeonju Bibimbap. Tastes like a typical Korean bibimbap but with additional jelly ingredient.
