Excursion: Jeonju Hanok Village with Bibimbap

The Jeonju Hanok Village is a traditional-style village located in the heart of Jeonju, housing over 800 traditional HANOK style buildings. It contains many traditional tea shops, souvenir shops and restaurants. While the rest of city has been industrialized, Hanok Maeul retains its historical charms and traditions.

Jeonju Hanok village is especially beautiful for its roof curves. The roof edges being slightly raised to the sky is unique. Hanok houses are generally divided into two sections, Anchae and Sarangchae. Anchae is also known as Gyusu room, and is furnished accordingly. Sarangchae is where the men dwell, and is referred to as the Seonbi room. Because men and women have to remain separate, Anchae is situated deep inside the house so that it is secretive and quiet.

Another trait of Hanok is that all the houses are heated with the ondol system, a unique sub-flooring heating system. Since Koreans enjoy sitting, eating, and sleeping on the floor, it needs to remain heated. A part of Hanok has been set aside so that tourists can experience traditional Korean life, called Hanok Life Experience Hall. You can enter the Seonbi room and the Gyusu room to experience the warm floor first-hand. An advantage of this system is that it is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The Jeonju bibimbap, a traditional local food, is well-known across South Korea. There are also several very popular vegetarian restaurants serving Jeonju style food.
