Jeonju Tailormade Holidays

Jeonju is a city in eastern South Korea famous for its food (particularly strawberries), historic buildings and innovative festivals. The city was regarded as the spiritual capital of the Joseon Dynasty as the Yi royal family originated there. The city contains a number of royal museums, temples, a castle fortress on a hillside and a well known paper museum.

Visitors to the city can also experience a unique way of traditional life in a Korean house known as ‘Hanok’. The Jeonju Hanok Village is a traditional-style village located in the heart of Jeonju housing over 800 traditional hanok buildings and tea shops.

Jeonju city has a number of other places of interest, including the Deokjin Park, popular for blooming lotus flowers that decorate the numerous ponds. These ponds were arranged according to feng shui rather than rules of irrigation. The Martyr Mountain is a Catholic pilgrimage site where Catholic martyrs were buried from 1784. The right-hand side of the mountain is home to the Jeonju Diocese Cleric Cemetery. This mountain is the spiritual birthplace for all pious Catholics who aspire to be spiritual martyrs in the contemporary era.
