Busan City Guide

Gamcheon Culture Village


about gamcheon culture village

"Santorini of Korea." "Machu Picchu of Busan."

This vibrant neighborhood has many nicknames, but, with its winding hilly roads, colorful homes, and vibrant murals, it can best be described with one word - captivating.

If you walk high enough, and far enough away from the crowds, you'll be rewarded with serene views of the surrounding neighborhood and the harbour in the distance.

Keep in mind that this is a residential area, so be respectful of the residents' privacy as you wander.
