Back to Joseon and Baekje Dynasty!
Jeonju Hanok Village, Hanok Maeul, is home to over 800 traditional Korean “Hanok” houses. While the rest of city has been industrialized, the village retains its historical charms and traditions.
Jeonju Hanok village is especially beautiful for its roof curves. The roof edges being slightly raised to the sky is unique. Hanok houses are generally divided into two sections, Anchae and Sarangchae.
Anchae are rooms strictly for females while Sarangchae are for males. Anchae is situated deep inside the house so that it is secretive and quiet. The food provided is very traditional, which adds to the traditional ambiance. At the Jeonju Hanok Village, visitors can enjoy the traditional Korean life and food like bibimbap. It is the most well-known dish from the Jeollanam-do region.
Baekje Cultural Land, built over a period of 17 years, is nestled in Gyuam-myeon, Buyeo-gun, Chungcheongnam-do, providing a home to Baekje's Cultural Heritage. The complex was used as a shoot site for “Running Man”, in an episode featuring Jung Woo-sung and Han Hyo-ju. The site is spread out over 3,276,000 square meters and is filled with the trace of Baekje culture.
Sabigung Palace reproduces the scenery of a royal palace during the Three Kingdoms period. Neungsa Temple, a royal temple that represents the Baekje period, has been recreated according to the real size of the historic site in Neungsan-ri, Buyeo-eup. The five-story Stone Pagoda, prominently seen after passing through Daetongmun Gate and Wiryeseong Fortress during the Hanseong Baekje Era, gives a different aspect of Sabigung Palace. Enjoy the entire view of the complex all at once on the Jehyangnu ferry.
Located in Gongju-si, Gongsanseong Fortress is a mountain castle which was established during the Baekje period (234-678). The castle is about 2.5km long and there are two ways of touring the castle. First, start from the parking lot, pass the west gate, Geumseoru, and walk along the cement road. The second way is to turn left at the beginning of the cement road and walk along the top of the castle, which is called Sanseong Road. The cement road is very smooth and you can walk along it comfortably. Sanseong Road has many twists and the passage is narrow, but it has the advantage of following along the riverside of Geumgang. It is worth the visit for its historical and cultural significance and also for the beautiful view’s of the Geumgang riverside and the castle’s trail. The whole course is about 3 km and 110m high. If you travel at a leisurely pace, it will take you about 2 hours and 30 minutes.
