The heart of Jeonju’s tourist area is the town’s hanok village. Hanok are traditional-style Korean houses and there are about 700 in Jeonju. Many of the hanok in Jeonju have been converted to businesses that cater to the town’s visitors and even with the tourist crowds the streets of the hanok village are a pleasant place for a walk. Unlike the hanok village in Seoul, Jeonju’s cluster of hanok buildings are on flat terrain, so you won’t have to do any climbing to explore the village.

While much of Jeonju’s hanok village is now commercial, one section of the village is still residential and it’s a good place to escape the crowds since not as many people wander in there. Obviously most of the houses are private homes and not open to the public, but there are a few where you’re allowed to take a step inside the gate and get a better view.
