Visit Ancient Jeonju Hanok Village

Jeonju Hanok Village has about 800 ancient houses still inhabited by people. For reasons of preserving and saving the features of culture, these houses have not been renovated and rebuilt into high-rise buildings, so coming here you will not see low-roofed and dilapidated houses. The houses here are built very firmly and carefully so looks like new, all houses that have only one floor with roof tile architecture look dwarf, cuteness overload. If you have more time, you can experience sleeping in the old houses also is quite interesting.
