Jeonju Hanok Village (全州韩屋村庄) - WW
Hanok is the Korean traditional house.
Jeonju is the most traditional Korean city..... a city of traditional culture & art. It is famous for Bibimbap and Hanji Korean paper.
There is the Korean Tradition & Culture Preservation Area which is located just behind my modern Core Riveria Hotel.
Jeonju Hanok Village (全州韩屋村庄) has about 800 traditional Korean-styled houses (Hanok). In the village are Jeonju Traditional Culture Centre, Jeonju Korean Traditional Life Experience Park, Jeonju Korean Traditional Wine Museum, Jeonju Traditional Craftswork Exhibition Hall, Jeonju Treasures Centre, Gyeonggijeon and Omokdae... etc. There is so much to see and learn, one day is not enough to feel the traditional culture here.
This village is the largest concentration area of Korean-styled houses where the culture of Korean ancestors is preserved completely. Hanoks are simply beautiful.
