Traditional Korea in Jeonju
There are two reasons to visit Jeonju in the Jeollabuk province: For once there is the Hanok Village, composed of hundreds of traditional Korean houses.
You find teahouses, restaurants, museums, and all kinds of boutiques in these cute little buildings. The main street feels a bit like a tourist trap, but if you turn off a couple of times you quickly escape the masses and it’s really nice to stroll around.
The second reason to come is to try a famous Korean dish, the Bibimbap, which is supposed to originate from here. It consists of rice which is served with different vegetables and beef, and you’re supposed to mix it all together in your bowl. We tried it in a traditional Korean restaurant in the Hanok village, and got to a mixed verdict: I liked it, Henry not so much.
