Taking Shelter from the Sun in Jeonju Hanok Village: Cheongyeonru, Omokdae, Hanbyukdang Pavilions

Jeonju Hanok Village is one of the most popular attraction in Korea. Every year, more than ten million people visit Jeonju Hanok Village, even during the hot summer. Today, I’ll introduce three pavilions in Jeonju Hanok Village where you can take shelter from the sun while enjoying the winds and great views.


Cheongyeonru is a pavilion built on a bridge called Namchungyo, above Jeonjuchun River. The bridge and the pavilion are relatively new landmarks in Jeonju, connecting Jeonju Hanok Village and Seohak Art Village.
The view from Cheongyeonru is magnificent. In particular, the view of the sunset over Jeonjuchun River, when everything turns orange and blue, is stunning. Also, the night view here is very romantic with the illuminations. People visit the pavilion to enjoy the refreshing wind blowing over the river.


Omokdae is a pavilion built on the top of a small mountain (more of a hill) overlooking Jeonju Hanok Village. I love watching the waves of black tiled roofs of the hanok buildings. Omokdae is a good place to visit if you’re travelling between Jeonju Hanok Village and Jaman Mural Village. The trail is a comfortable walk.


Hanbyukdang is a pavilion built on a cliff overlooking Jeonjuchun River. Hence the view is stunning. When surrounded by fog, it can feel mysterious too. The pavilion is originally built in 1404 as a summer house.

If you’re planning to visit Korea this summer, don’t miss Jeonju Hanok Village and these traditional pavilions!

    Hanbyukdang appears to be the smallest (and perhaps the most secluded) of the 3 pavilions. Looks like a great date spot or a peaceful place to avoid large crowds of visitors. In addition, the orange and blue sunset view of Jeonjuchun River from Cheongyeonru looks spectacular!

    Fantastic! a beautiful,Pictorial portrayal of the Jeonju Hanok Village and its traditional pavilions.

    There are three kinds of traditional pavilions: ‘jeong’, ‘nu’ (or ‘lu’), and ‘dae. Jeong and Nu mean a 1 or 2 story Pavillion while Dae is an elevated space, possibly to watch movements of enemies . Or, these days, visitors from above. Rising over the Jeonjuchun River, Cheongyeonru is a traditional pavilion built in the middle of a bridge. The view from Cheongyeonru during sunset is breath-taking as it overlooks the river. It’s also a great spot to catch some shade and enjoy peace and beauty during the harsh summer heat. Check it out soon!

    Cheongyeonru has a beutiful view from the east and west side. If you have the chance to come during fall season, the sunsets are amazing. You can take incredible portraits and landscapes over there.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful event 🎉

    For me this is a great place. This is a lovely place to visit as it is essentially a neighborhood with many traditional houses. However, I find that especially on weekends, it is really full of tourists. The main streets play loud music to tourists and sell various small trinkets and small snacks. However when you find small alleys away from the main streets, it is quirky and lovely. Try to go on weekdays and remember to maintain your basic etiquette of keeping quiet as this area is a residential area. Would like to travel again. Dear 🌹 Jeonju

    Beautiful Hanok village, charming little streets hidden between the traditional houses. Good food, nice view, the walk on the riverside not too far away is really beautiful, with the puffy weeds and a lot of birds resting in the middle of them. Lovely hanbok costumes all over the place, delicious street food, chance to taste the healthy local moju, just lovely!

    Hello {Jeonjucity}🤝🤝
    Jeonju tourism has lots of things to offer. Most of the things to do in Jeonju are located in the hanok village, but there are a couple of sights in Jeonju city and in the outskirts of the city.
    is the perfect place to go on a weekend or Jeonju day trip from Seoul.
