7 Things to Do in Yeoju-si That You Shouldn't Miss

October 13, 2017 Marianna Hollaway

Yeoju (Korean pronunciation: [jʌ.dʑu]) is a city in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. Yeoju was a county but was raised to the status of a city in September 2013. Together with the neighboring city of Icheon, it is known as a major center of contemporary South Korean ceramics, and hosts the World Ceramic Exposition every year. Other local products of note include rice, sweet potatoes, and yellow melons. Yeoju is the birthplace of Korea's last queen, Empress Myeongseong.

Yeoju Premium Outlets

Reviewed By Serene536 - Singapore, Singapore

If you have been to other Premium outlets in US, you either have to manage your expectation or just not go. Prices not that cheap and range for shopping is very limited. Most shops are quite small and some service staff appeared bored and disinterested to serve. Not worth the travelling time of almost 2hrs and 5700won (one-way bus ticket from Seoul Express Bus Terminal). Save your time & money for shopping in myeongdong or Doota.
Also, since the instruction to get there is not very clear. I will attempt to provide some info:
1. Go to the Seoul Express Bus Terminal
2. Buy the ticket to Yeoju Premium Outlet from the counter
3. Journey is supposed to be about 1hr 40mins
4. Alight at the last stop Yeoju and take a taxi (11,000won) to the Outlet. (There are buses but apparently it takes a long time and we wasn't sure where is the bus stop. See photo instruction we took at the bus terminal)

Silleuksa Temple

C1 ( 2013.4.5 )
In general, temple in Korea was located in the middle of mountain. But this temple was located beside river unusually. There was a good view the harmony of river and mountain. This temple was apart from parking about 500m, road to temple was beside river. This temple was built about 550 years ago. There were many Korean treasure ( stone pagoda, tombstone, stone bell etc ) and something to see ( 600 years old ginko, watchtower beside river ). The building in temple was very Korean traditional building. I think, if you visit Yeoju, you have to visit this place.

Yeongnyeongneung

Reviewed By kjmagnuson - Los Angeles, California

King Sejong's tomb is surprisingly modest considering his impact and legacy. Widely viewed as the greatest king of the Joseon Dynasty, Sejong helped establish Confucian learning throughout the country. Astronomy, ceramics, and painting reached new heights during his reign. Nevertheless, King Sejong's most lasting contrubution is the Korean writing system itself.
The tomb complex is modest, but the design is excellent. There is a small museum near the entrance that covers some of King Sejong's greatest achievements. While this is not the most exciting cluster of tombs from the Joseon Dynasty, I enjoyed my visit. Visiting ancient tombs, palaces, temples, or fortresses in Korea is not for everyone. I am fascinated by history, and for me the Joseon tombs are as authentic as historical sites get. Most of these dynastic tombs have been well-maintained for centuries, and the preservation of each site is exceptional.

신륵사 티켓있으면 입장권 할인되고요...
크게 볼게 많지는 않은데.. 그냥 아기자기한 개인 박물관이에요.. 전시가 아직 제대로 되지 않은 것들도 꽤 있고요.. 일단 박물관 마당과 건물안에 자잘한 조각등이 빼꼭해요... 큰것들도 꽤 있지만요... 그냥 시간나거나 지나다가는 가볼만 해요.

전라북도 도립미술관으로 전주 인근의 명산인 모악산 밑에 있습니다. 전시관과 주변을 공원으로 꾸며 지역민들이 즐겨 찾는 곳으로 경관이 좋아 추천합니다.
