If you read my previous stories on Busan travel, I’ve visited many attractive places in Busan except this. When I traveled to Busan again last Winter, I decided to spent a morning to explore this area. Off course to take some nice photos and share them here. It looks and feels like the white and blue house in Santorini, Aegean Sea, if you ask me. It is the Gamcheon Culture Village of Busan.
Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan
Gamcheon Culture village is one of the newest spots for travel photography in Busan, overseeing Busan harbour and the Jagalchi Market down the hill. It is a small town up the Busan coastal hill of Gamcheon-dong which was once the poorer area of the city. In 2009, local authority decided to enhance Gamcheon-dong’s cultural image to pose it as a new tourist spot featuring various artistic and cultural attractions which won several travel awards local and abroad.
The main feature of the town is obviously the hillside brick houses with colorful walls and blue roofs. If you go in the sunny morning, you can capture its picturistic view as seen in the above photo.
Likewise, there are other artistic creation and wall painting in the village which you will notice along the way up or down the hilly alleys. I will share more of these pictures later in the blog. Meanwhile, you can recap some of my stories of Korea travel a couple of years ago before catching up my latest stories of my Korea Winter trip last December. Stay reading and happy travel! 🙂 – Travel Feeder
