Maisan Mountain

Reviewed By IshahOz - Oz

This is my first visit to Mount Mai. The literal Chinese translation is Horse Ear Mount. The reason is that this park is located between two hills that appeared to be like the horse ears. We hired a jumbo taxi for the day for KRW 200,000 to take us from Jeonju to Daedunsan (cloud bridge) and then to Geumsan Ginseng Market & Mount Mai was our last place of visit. We arrived at the southern car park. Car Entrance fee is KRW 2,000 and park entrance fee is KRW 3,000. Once you enter, you have the shire building on the left. As you continue on you will walk pass many eatery placed where in one of the stall you could sample preserved melons & Kim chi. As you continue to walk on the pathway, you will come to a beautiful lake on your left. Keep walking and you will be able to see interesting piled stones on your right. As you continue on you will finally reached the northern car park & the temple. Here you will be able to take a picture of the temple in between the two ear liked mountain. This is a easy way to see Mount Mai. For those hikers, there is another route which I was told you could hike up the Mountains which might take a couple of hours which we did not do due to time constraint. However we did walk around the temple area and then take a slow walk back to the southern car park. We decided to have dinner there at one of the stalls on our way out. We managed to try BBQ black pork ribs & neck. They are delicious. We also tried delicious sizzling cooked fresh deodeok (codonopsis lanceolata). This is the only place we could find this dish being served. So if you visit Mount Mai, I would recommend you have a meal here & try this dish. The small serve of this dish costs KRW 15,000. The large one is KRW 20,000.

Gwanghallu is a short walk from the bus station and is a pleasant park with a pavillion bridge, and pond. There are several good restaurant to eat in around the park. The park is famous because of the Chunhyang who was a woman in the Joseon dynasty who refused the advances of a local magistrate. You can dress up in hanbok at several locations around the park.

Gyeonggijeon Shrine

Reviewed By zhenqi - Singapore, Singapore

With an entrance fees of 6,000 won for 2 person.
We spent a good 1.5 hours here looking at the different section.
How the kitchen of olden days look like, with a traditional pounder. And a place used to keep the records on daily life of the King.
Royal Portrait museum where we get to see impressive portrait of King Taejo. Painting of Five Peaks with Sun and Moon was beautiful to admire too. So much so that I bought the magnet version of it home.
Historical sites seekers would have to pop in here to see.

Hwaeomsa Temple

Reviewed By jrh825 - Bellevue, Washington

I visited the Hwaeomsa temple over the Buddha's birthday holiday and was wowed by the location. In late spring, the Mountains are lush and bright green with foliage, and the temple itself is beautiful. It's a long way from Seoul, anywhere from 4-6 hours by bus depending on traffic, but well worth it. The Jirisan mountain area is stunning and the air quality much better than the big city.
If you're brave you can opt for the temple stay option, experiencing the ascetic lifestyle of Buddhist monks. As temples go, this one is actually rather well-appointed, with electricity and hot showers. You will need to get comfortable with sleeping on the floor and eating three meals a day of vegetarian bibimbap, though. Waking up at 3AM to watch the Buddhist monks pray is a disorienting but unique experience.
Otherwise, just go for the view and the relaxing hiking opportunities in the area. You won't be disappointed.

Silsangsa Temple

Reviewed By veggiejeonju - Jeonju, South Korea

I visited the temple at the same time I visited Namwon. If you set off early in the day Silsangsa and Namwon can be easily visited in a day trip from Jeonju or other cities. Although the temple is rather small, it has a lot of national treasures and there is good hiking from the temple. There are several minbaks in the village if you want to stay the night.

Jeondong Catholic Church

Reviewed By Omneeuh

I stopped by after seeing a lot of people in front of it taking pictures in traditional clothing. The side door was opened, so I took a look inside. It was nice, but nothing spectacular. I sat in the pews for a few minutes and was surprised they had pillows for kneeling. It's a good place to have a few minutes of silence.

Jeonju Hanok Village

Reviewed By Sanghee Y

The town is surrounded by a river. You can see old fashioned houses built hundreds years ago. It’s amazing to see still a few residents are in the village.
Clean restrooms and free shuttles are user friendly. There is a small exhibition displaying many kinds of mask. They even offer lessons good for teens and children.
