Trying out my Camera in Hanok Village Jeonju | Top Ten Photoshoot!
Back to the Hanok Village in Jeonju City South Korea again today… but this time for a Top Ten Photoshoot! According to Jeonju City Blog these are the suggested Ten Best Photo Zones in the Hanok Village, Jeonju.
Watch me try to replicate the professional pics! How did I do??
It’s my first time trying out my camera, a Nikon D5600. I really enjoyed trying out photography and hope to really improve the quality of my photos over time! I’ve watched so many YouTube videos on beginner photography, but in reality, there’s nothing like getting out there to really learn how to use the camera! So, enjoy this attempt at the Top Ten in Hanok Village Jeonju!!
Hanok Village Monument
This is where the Hanok Village begins! Start your Hanok Village tour here!
The trail to Omokdae Pavilion
Head on up the stairs to make your way onto the trail to the Omokdae Pavilion
The black tile roofs of Jeonju Hanok Village
Along the way take a break to view the black tile roofs of Jeonju Hanok Village from above!
At the end of the trail you're greeted with the Pavilion... unfortunately, under construction when I was there!
Hyanggyo (Confucian School).
One of the highlights of the village for me. You can wander around in here and see 300 - 500 year old gingko trees!
The royal portrait of Taejo, the founder of the Jeseon Dynasty is held in this palace. Rebuilt in 1614 after it was burnt down during the Japanese invasion.
Jeonju Korean Traditional Wine Museum
Explore the world of traditional Korean liquor. You can see the tools and machines used in the making of alcohol and get a closer look at the different types of Korean traditional wine.
Jeonju Gukak (Korean traditional music) Broadcasting System
Gugak FM is a South Korean radio broadcasting station specializing in Korean traditional music (gugak) and culture.
The monument next to Jeonju Sori Cultural Center
Marking another entrance to the Jeonju Hanok Village. You could start here too but I think starting at Omokdae gives you much more of an overview of the village!
I missed one photo zone, Hanbyeokdang Pavilion.. I just couldn't find it! In fact, I didn't come down the same stairs as suggested in the blog post but it was still stunning! I went in the searing summer heat... I would recommend you go nearer the end of summer to do the whole trail. Otherwise just take a leisurely stroll around the village itself where you can eat, drink and rest when the heat gets to much!
