Jeonju Hanok Village and Market Tour

Overview

We have organised a day trip to visit the historical city of Jeonju. Located in western South Korea, Jeonju is the birthplace of the popular dish Bibimbap. As well as being the birthplace of the Joseon Dynasty, Jeonju has a lot of attractions to offer. In this trip, you will have a chance to visit the Nambu Market as well as other attractions like the Jeonju Hanok Village and Jeondong Catholic Church.

What to Expect

Jeonju Nambu Markete
Having been the commercial center of the Southwestern part of Korea for centuries, Jeonju Nambu Market is always flooded with people. Being a market that has over 800 shops and 1,200 vendors, it sells almost everything. It also offers many different exotic street food.

Jeonju Hanok Village
Jeonju Hanok Village has retained its charm throughout the years and continue to do so. Famous for its traditional housing structures, Jeonju Hanok village is home to over 800 Hanok houses. This historical spot allows you to have a glimpse into the living style Korean people used to live in. Hanok Village is also a famous spot for travellers and food-lovers who would like to experience traditional Korean food, especially Bibimbap. Being the birthplace of the well-known Korean dish Bibimbap, you will be able to enjoy this dish in its origin.

There are also local rental shops in the area where you can rent Hanbok clothing. This way you may not only understand what it is like being a local, but also feel like a local.

Jeondong Catholic Church
Being known as one of the most beautiful Catholic churches in Korea, Jeondong Catholic Church was designed by Priest Poinel, who also built Seoul’s Myeongdong Cathedral. It is built to honour of the first Korean Catholic Martyrs who lost their lives at the very location.

Pungnammun Gate
Built in the Joseon Dynasty, Pungnammun Gate has now been known to be a National Treasure. Being one of the ruins that remained, Pungnammun Gate is the only gate that still stands after their demolition in 1597. The structure was partially destroyed during the Japanese invasion in 1592-1598 but was restored in 1978.
