‘Snowscape’ of Jeonju

 

The season of snow and light is here again. This week, I’ll introduce the places where you can stroll as if you’re free from worldly cares, while cherishing the vivid ‘snowscape’ of Jeonju.

 

During Daytime: Jeonju Hanok Village, Jeonghyesa Temple, Moaksan Mountain

 

Jeonju Hanok Village

Jeonghyesa Temple

The snowscape of Jeonju is unique. Walk to the Omokdae Pavilion and appreciate the vastness of the snow-covered Hanok Village under your feet. I also recommend visiting Jeonghyesa Temple. It’s in the middle of the city, but it seems as if I’ve just entered the Korean Narnia. If you’re looking for more serenity and a leisurely walk, visit the nearby snow-capped Moaksan Mountain. After a busy year, the mountain is hibernating, silent. Time stopped flowing here, so that I can finally afford to walk the beautiful mountain trail.

 

Location

​Jeonju Hanok Village: Gyo-dong, Wansan-gu, Jeonju

Jeonghyesa Temple: Oechilbong 1-gil 36, Wansan-gu, Jeonju

Moaksan Mountain: Guyi-myun, Wanju-gun

At Night: Chutmajung-gil, Munhoeru Pavilion, Donggosa Temple

 

Night View: Chutmajung-gil

Night View: Munhoeru Pavilion

 

Night View: Donggosa Temple

Located in front of the Jeonju Train Station, the illuminated Chutmajung-gil is more beautiful at night. The traditional Korean style pavilion located in the Jeonbuk National University, Munhoeru, is one of the newest additions to the nightscape of Jeonju. The reflection of the illuminated pavilion over the pond and the vibrant atmosphere of the university lightens up the stroll into the winter night. I recommend ending this small trip at the Donggosa Temple. Looking over the glittering city covered in snow is reinvigorating. The beautiful memories of the Jeonju ‘snowscape’ will fuel my everyday life to come.

Location

Chutmajung-gil: Baekjaedaero, Deokjin-gu, Jeonju

Munhoeru Pavilion (Chonbuk National University): Baekjaedaero 567, Deokjin-gu, Jeonju

Donggosa Temple: Naksujeong 2-gil 103-100, Wansan-gu, Jeonju

    Have not visited Jeonju in Winter but I would definitely want to go there when it snows!

  • Beautiful in the Winter it seems!

  • Adila Ayub

    I’ve visited Jeonju during summer. I think I should also visit Jeonju Hanok Village during the winter because it looks more extraordinary 🙂

  • The village is a must to visit in Jeonju, you will have an extraordinary time there enjoying the view and taking gorgeous photos, I totally recommend going there early in the morning or/and afternoon around 4/5 pm. Amazing!

  • Elysia Toh

    Chutmajung-gil looks absolutely wonderful!!! That is an illuminated streetscape rivaled only by the night lights of Paris. Can’t wait to brig my DSLR and snap away!!

  • izmirK

  • Kittipot Imjard

    I didnt expect that Jeonju in winter is beautiful like this before..

  • Joshua Garcia

    Jeonghyesa Temple during winter is a great place to go if you wanna experience what Korea really is. More than big cities and buildings, Jeonju is a city that combines both modernity and traditions in a perfect way.

    Jeonju covered with snow makes the city so much more breathtaking, and the idea of leisurely walks make it even better as well. I also love the new addition to the night scape of Jeonju, a night time view is the best ending to any day.
