Cholla-bukdo's (North Cholla Province's)
largest city and provincial capital is Chonju. Famous throughout Korea for
its food, especially its beebimbap (mixed-vegetables and rice) Chonju
is the jumping off point for exploring the entire province. You'll know you're
getting close to the city when you start seeing all of the beebimbap
billboards along the side of the road.
Buses depart for Chonju from around the peninsula all day long. From Seoul it takes about three hours depending
on the class of service and bus company.
Train: the train station is a bit far from the city center and can be a a pain.
The journey takes 3 hours to 3.5 hours depending on train and class
