Introducing Jeonju

Jeonju, the provincial capital, is famous for being the birthplace of both the Joseon dynasty and Korea’s most well-known culinary delight, bibimbap (rice, meat, egg and vegetables with a hot sauce). Centrally located, the city is the perfect base from which to explore Jeollabuk-do as it’s the regional hub for buses and trains. The central historical folk village has many outstanding hanok (traditional wooden homes) housing museums, cute teahouses and artisan workshops.
