Trip Moments

There is a colorful cultural village in Busan, South Korea. In addition to watching the sea in Busan, there is also a small and literary Gamcheon Culture Village. It used to be a slum that was once ruined. Later, under the impetus of “Hutong Art Project” in Busan, volunteers put houses. The walls are painted with watercolors and murals, making it a vibrant new village, attracting countless visitors and has became famous cultural attractions. Going to the Gamcheon Culture Village is a test of foot strength and physical strength. From the subway, there is a long road to the mountain. There is a long steep slope. Sometimes you need to assist the roadside handrails to advance easily. The color of the Gamcheon Culture Village is far more beautiful than what I saw on the Internet and in the book. Each building has multiple colors and different wall murals, so that all the visitors who come to take pictures can take beautiful pictures every time. A beautiful and satisfying place. Ascending the distance, you can not only see the lovely appearance of the colorful houses in this village, but also the harbors with mountains and seas in the distance. There are many net red photos here, and the most queued ones should be the little princes.

I have been to the color town of Guanajuato in Mexico, and finally made it to the color village of Busan, South Korea. Located at the foot of the mountain, the Ganchuan Cultural Village is a village formed by a series of houses arranged in a stepped manner. It is known as the Machu Picchu in Busan. In the Ganchuan Cultural Village, visitors can see a variety of themed houses, as well as a variety of unique styles in the alleys. These works are all inspired by the creativity of the local villagers, and visitors can also follow the villagers for interesting experiences.

The famous Haedong Yonggungsa Temple in Busan was founded by Master Lazy Weng in the 1376 period of Gao Liyu. This beautiful temple was built on the seashore, backed by mountains and facing the sea. From the entrance of Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, there must be 108 steps to reach the Daxiong Hall, while in the middle of the 108th step is the Sunrise Rock. If you come early, you can stand on the rock and you can hear the sound of the waves hitting the rocks near the shore. While enjoying the spectacular scenery of the sunrise, and you can see the amazing view of the "Golden Dragonfly" on the Sea Dragon King. Located in front of the main hall of Daxiong, the gorgeous three-story stone pagoda is a beautiful sculpture. It is said that a rock with a mighty shape is called the Longyan Rock (also known as Maitreya Rock). Later, because the temple was destroyed during the turbulent period of the Yuchen, and the coast warning line was added during the confrontation period of 6-25 between the North and South Korea. The place was completely rocky taking away, the leading rock, and was also submerged in the long river of history.

Haeundae is considered to be the closest coastal city to Seoul. It is considered to be a Southeast Asian city. The annual Busan International Film Festival adds a lot of fashion to this place. Busan Film Festival is often held in mid-October, and even if there are no appearances from any of the stars, it is always crowded and exciting. This kind of self-entertainment is also self-satisfying. Very young children cannot attend and people are divided into groups here. It is not wise to discriminate between the groups since each group consists of human beings.  If you want to experience a more romantic atmosphere, you can go watch the sunset in Haeundae. You can watch children play in the sand and listen to the singers that sing along the coastline. There is a lot of food to sample. Dumplings are particularly popular here at the restaurants along the seaside. You can try some rice wine that is served from a barrel, have some meat and have fun with your friends.
