Jeonju, the walkable, historic, slow city in Korea

Jeonju, the walkable, historic, slow city in Korea

Jeonju was one of the cities I visited in Korea. Like Gyeongju it is a city full of old Korean houses and historic sites, but the great difference is in terms of the experience staying there. When riding bikes becomes the lifestyle in Gyeongju, walking and taking a rest and even a nap is what everyone can do in Jeonju.

How it is possible is that most of the historic sites usually serve as public space, so that people can sit down and lay down, alone or with friends as you like. Cafes, sightseeing places are close together to make a city walkable.

A historic city doesn't imply the place will remain unchanged in the long run. It doesn't change a lot rapidly, while people do paintings on the wall of their houses to make a city new and more bright and colourful.

在去過的韓國城市中,全州像慶州有著不少歷史建築和韓式房屋,但最大的分別在於處身於城市中的體驗。在慶州騎單車,在全州則是步行、休息甚至有睡午覺的空間。

歷史建築本身提供了公共空間的功能,其空間讓市民坐下來甚至躺在地上,獨個兒又好、與朋友一起也好。此外咖啡店和景點彼此都很近,走路便可以。

歷史城市不意味它會靜止停留在同一個時空,只是不會變化太多。在這個城市還是看到不少人在韓屋外畫畫,讓這個城市更美麗。
