Jeonju is just an hour and half south of Seoul and can easily be visited on a day-trip from the capital.
The Korean War destroyed large sections of many Korean towns and cities, so a preserved and well maintained area like the Hanok village is quite special.
The Hanok village is a well-preserved example of traditional Korean architecture and culture.
When I visited the city in 2011 there was a gourmet Korean food festival happening, with lots of interesting Korean meals on display.
While I didn’t get to try most of them, they looked like ‘fine-dining’ versions of many popular Korean dishes.
There also appeared to be some type of combination of kimchi and chocolate but I can’t be 100% sure!
Judges were there to test out some of the fancy food.
Also on display was traditional Korean rice-cake desserts.
Jeonju is famous for it’s bibimbap the local variety is known for having many extra ingredients.
