You can easily reach Gamcheon culture village by bus. I suggest getting a map for a small fee at the entrance to the village so that you can get a sense of where you are going and how big the village is. There are many different places to stop and take pictures. There’s also great places to eat and shop for fun souvenirs. I recommend going off the beaten path and getting lost a little in the village.
A must visit while in Busan. Stunning area but was very crowded the day I visited. Can walk to the top (which I did) took around 40 minutes stopping to take photos and read bits about the history. There is also a bus which I believe is free. Lots of street food and street vendors selling all kinds of stuff.
Its a beautiful place with lots of great photo ops and creative art! I really enjoyed looking over all the colorful buildings and scenery
The place was easy to find but the main bus that goes to that area doesn’t go all the way up. Rest assured though, there’s another bus that passes by almost every 3 minutes or you can walk if you want to, wouldn’t recommend that as it’s a steep climb. Once you’re in the town, its easy to move around. There are places for drinks and light snacks, and the place is very artsy and picturesque.
This is probably the most worthwhile scenic spot for this tour. Ganchuan Cave Art Village, a colour house built by the sea and hillside, is called Korean version "Santorini", mural sculpture, coffee dessert, colour huts stack on top of each other, and the lane is like a labyrinth, almost lost. Art Village does not accept admission tickets. You can buy a map in the tourist consultation information center. 2000 won. The staff of the tourist center will show you the way on the map enthusiastically. They will tell you which point to go first, where to go and where to get seals. There is a special page on the map for stamping. All the seals are stamped, and the whole village is basically complete. Ganchuan Cave was built during the Korean War. A large number of refugees poured into the refugee villages built in Busan for refuge. After the joint efforts of the government and artists, Ganchuan Cave has now become an art village. Therefore, apart from demolishing the old houses, there may be other ways out.
A community on a slope in Busan is famous for its colorful and unique artworks. In fact, the tragic story behind it is a tearful story. The refugees who had gone through war fled here and settled down. The whole settlement is a step-by-step arrangement of the front houses without concealing the view of the back houses. It reflects the unique architectural virtues. This inheritance interacts with each other. The barren settlements that live in harmony with the local artists and college students have made great efforts to give the village a chance to regenerate with bright colours. Therefore, they have won the reputation of Machu Picchu in Korea. Regrettably, time-limited and intimate guides lead us to visit the best scenic spots to take pictures during limited visits, although it has become a hot spot of tourism, Gancun Cave. The community still inherits the traditionally low-key color of folk houses and exterior walls without a trace of publicizing that residents live as before, even cats do not pay attention to visitors'Street exterior wall stairs, doors and windows. Only then can the colorful murals be seen, just like the Chinese costume under the plain face of Gancun Cave, which was thought to be inaccessible in the old mountains and forests, originally located in the foothills near the West cave of Busan. It's also very convenient for the subway to transfer to the bus. I still have no chance to visit Gancun Cave again.
It was a great experience to visit this cultural village. There are a lot of food and souvenir shops. However it wasn’t that easy to get a good shot because it is really packed of tourist. Overall, it was a wonderful experience to see some Korean Traditional Culture here.
