one expat's life in Korea
Do I have a tip for you? Here it is — Missa Cantata in Jeonju Diocese, South Korea.
The Jeonju Hanok Village immediately springs to mind. Other places worth visiting might be Paper Craft Studio Jidam and PungnammunFor places to eat, it might be worth checking out this page from The Jeonju Hub. Seems "Ga Jok Hwe Gwan" got a good review on their site, and Hsin-Hsin (a blogger from Taiwan) mentions it as well. If I track down anything else I'll be sure to let you know.(My favorite Korean soccer club is based in Jeonju, but after our talk a couple weekends back I get the impression that won't be high on your list of 'things to do' ...!)
I know the great place to eat! The restaurant name is "Hankukgwan(한국관)". I'm sure almost people in Jeonju know here. I go here everytime when I visit Jeonju. They serve Bibimbap, and it's great! This is the number: 063-272-9229. It's near to Jeonju Sports Complex.
Here are a few posts from my blog about Jeonju. http://robguv.blogspot.com/2009/09/jeonju-map.htmlhttp://robguv.blogspot.com/2009/08/mook-hyang-japanese-restaurant-jeonju.htmlhttp://robguv.blogspot.com/2009/08/jeonju.htmlThere are few articles on my other blog too http://robmcgovern.wordpress.com/I live in Jeonju so feel free to ask for anything else you need.Rob
Also have a look at Jeonju's expat site:http://www.thejeonjuhub.com
Visited the Jeonju Traditional Cultural Centre. Great for experiencing Korean crafts and customs, though I suspect the place caters more readily to tour groups than individuals. Had lots of fun learning making bibimbap and playing the traditional drum ( pre-arranged by tour leader). City buses include: 21, 72, 73, 82, 83, 84, 92. 99, 100, 111, 131, 132, 139, 140Check out website: www.jtculture.or.krWould appreciate your constructive feedback on my blog - http://ajummasjournal.blogspot.comHappy trails!Ajumma
