Gamcheon Cultural Village

A village born in poverty but doesn’t lose its colour.

It is filled with history, memories and artists work. The Gamcheon Cultural Village got me staying there for a half day, exploring the magical small alleys, with painted walls and hidden art studios.

This is known as the poorest village in Busan and government made it into a tourist spot with local artists. There are still a lot of residents living in those households which means travellers would have a high chance of bumping into someone’s back door. 👀

One funny fact is, I also saw a ‘Airbnb’ sign within the village, so there are travellers actually staying INSIDE one of the houses to experience a real Busan resident’s life.

I chose to wear a rather colourful and cultural style blouse to match today’s theme. Made and designed in Korea, I reckon it’s an independent fashion label.

The alley is full of hand painted walls and selling hand crafted products by local artists. Doesn’t it feel like you suddenly jumped into Alice Wonderland? Wish Johnny Depp would pop up from that tiny door. 😝

A wall for lovers all over the world to wait in line and take a photo with their special.

Something about this elephant caught my eyes. Maybe it was the colourful wall..? (blogger’s symptom)

You could say it is creative, creepy, funny.. ALL IN ONE. It gave me a heart attack at first sight. 👖 Definitely would not consider doing this in my backyard or balcony 😉

I do recommend people who travel to Busan to add this village into their list because you will have a lot of fun exploring art around every corner and take cute photos! 💕


To a bowl of sunshine a day

Thanks for reading 💋
