Stop At: Jeonju Hanok Village, Eunhaeng-ro, Wansan-gu, Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do South Korea
Jeonju Hanok Village is especially beautiful for its unique roof edges, which are slightly raised to the sky. Another trait of Hanok is that all the houses are heated with ondol, a unique sub-floor heating system. Since Koreans enjoy sitting, eating, and sleeping on the floor, it needs to remain heated.

Stop At: Omokdae and Imokdae, 55, Girin-daero, Wansan-gu, Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do 55045 South Korea
As the saying goes, it can be hard to “see the forest for the trees” when you’re in the middle of the village. To get a bird’s-eye view, head toward Omokdae Pavilion, located on a hill at the opposite end of the village from Gyeonggijeon Shrine. You won’t be able to see much from the top of the hill, but the wooden boardwalk provides some stunning views of the hanok rooftops on the way. You’ll feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of the typical tourists snapping photos and buying snacks on the streets below. If you’re looking for a bit of exercise, head all the way up to Omokdae Pavilion and take a break in the shade or snap your own photo before heading to the next destination.
Omokdae Pavilion is located on top of a steep hill and is one of the places where Yi Seong-gye (who later became King Taejo, the first king of the Joseon dynasty) stopped to celebrate his victory on his way home from a war with Japanese invaders at Unbong Peak of Hwangsan Mountain, near the end of the Goryeo Era. It is also a place where Mokjo, one of Yi’s forefathers, had once lived.
Imokdae Pavilion is located near the foot of Seungamsan Mountain where Chimyeongjasan, the site of a holy Catholic monument. 80 meters down from Imokdae Pavilion are memorial stones and a memorial house.
Imokdae Pavilion is the place where Mokjo (forefather of King Taejo) played war games as a child with his friends
