While the Hanok Village is great to see, it is not the historical site it is marketed as. I understand that the original buildings would not have stood the test of time, but most of the village appears to be new buildings which takes away from some of the atmosphere. That said you do get to see/experience traditional crafts, etc and there is an abundance of restaurants to enjoy. I would recommend you try Veteran for their fantastic dumplings

The buildings are pretty, though most have been rebuilt. However, don't expect any ancient atmosphere here. The place is thoroughly modern and a tourist trap -- with expensive eateries, etc. However, it is the nicest part of Jeonju city to stay in.

Hanok Village in Jeonju is always charming and interesting, but it's much better when something is going on. There are often events when the weather is nice, so just find out when they are before you take the time to go.

The village itself is not far from the downtown area of Jeonju and makes for a nice walk before or after visiting. There are tea houses, museums, small temples, a nice short hike up a hill to a pavillion, and traditional-style homes to look at. Don't be afraid to go off the main path; you can find some real treasures down roads that look like there's nothing of interest.

The village shuts down pretty early though, and Koreans tend not to be morning people, so plan to go in the afternoon. And be sure to bring a camera.

What is perhaps most unique about Jeonju's Hanok village is how the core community has adapted into the 21st century. While there are quite a few traditional (authentic) buildings within the village, much of what we see today has been built in the last 10-20 years. There are numerous traditional tea houses, souvenir shops, and restaurants.

Above all the best activity for this village is to just stroll around, appreciate the beautiful buildings (old & new), and enjoy delicious food. Bibimbap is a local speciality, and is served nearly everywhere. Jeonju is a fairly large city, but visiting Jeonju Hanok village makes the city much more local and enticing.
