Conquer a long flights of stairs to reached this place. There is no shortcut to it. Climb with an elderly, so we do it really slowly like for a 15 mins climb. It's the peaceful feel that we can get reaching here. Stayed for around 30 mins at this area, drinking tea and admiring the beauty of Jeonju.

Omokdae and Imokdae are located within a stone's throw away from the Hanok village. Just a short climb of stairs will get you to Omokdae first, which offers a stunning view of Jeonju's hanok village. We also stumbled by a 100-year old cafe at the foot of Omokdae! Very impressed with the history of the city here.

This attraction involves lots of walking, hiking and climbing up and going down stairs...if you're up to the challenge, there's a good site of the Hanok Village from here...

A little hike up and away from the Jeonju Hanok Village, you will be rewarded with the nice view over the traditional house dotted downhill.

A short walk leads you to the top of the hill with nice views of the village. It doesn't take long and is fairly easy. Night time allows for some pretty views! Seemed very safe even at night!

We visited Omokdae and Imokdae recently and learned the story behind these two structures. It was interesting to see how each of these came to be. They help reflect a part of the very interesting history of Korea. Next to these attractions are signage that explains, in English, why these structures exist. Take a few minutes while you're in Jeonju... More
