Jeonju Zoo

Opened in 1978, Jeonju Zoo has been a favorite landmark of Jeonju for decades. Being the oldest Zoo outside Seoul, the zoo is currently home to around 650 animal species.

The entrance fee is 1,300 won for an adult, 600 won for a teenager, and 400 for a child.

Recently, Jeonju Zoo has been transformed into an ‘ecological zoo’. The zoo is working hard to shelter the animals in the environment that is as close as possible to their natural habitat. The bear shelter has been expanded ten-fold recently, so that the ten bears that call Jeonju Zoo home can live more comfortably.

Jeonju Zoo seems like a perfect location for the visitors on a tight budget!
