Jeonju Tourism

Jeonju may be considered a little underdeveloped, by modern Korean standards, but a chance to savour the historical tradition of Jeonju should appeal to visitors.

Jeonju was the first capital of the Chosun Dynasty, 900 AD to 936 AD, and is renowned for its cuisine. Be sure to try the local dishes, especially Bibimpap -- a Korean rice dish from the Chosun Era mixed with beef, seasoned vegetables and fried egg.

Also on the regional menu is Kongnamul Gukbap (rice soup mixed with bean-sprout) and mung-bean jelly.

Popular attractions around Jeonju include Daga Park, Deokjin Park, Unseokgol, Jeonju Zoo, Central Park, and the Ancient House Preservation District.
