From 태종대유원지 Taejongdae Recreation Area 太宗臺遊園區, we took Bus 8 at 1:34pm to Nampo Station 南浦站, and flagged a cab to 감천문화마을 Gamcheon Culture Village 甘川洞文化村.
Six minutes (and ₩3,700) later, we arrived at the pretty Gamcheon Culture Village, aka the “Machu Picchu of Korea”, or “Santorini of Korea”!
Our first stop was to get a guide map (₩2,000) at the community centre, so that it would be easier to navigate the area. Plus, we would get to collect stamps around the village and exchange for postcards at some stations, thus ensuring that we would not miss the must-see sights (check out The Little Prince in the feature photo above!).
While enjoying the murals and street art, do keep a look out for the wooden fishes, for they would lead you to the next station 🙂 Do keep your noise level down, especially when passing through the residential areas. Click on the photos to see a bigger picture!
There were a lot of up and down slopes / steps (try the “Stairs to See Stars”!!), so we highly recommend that you wear a pair of comfortable and well-cushioned shoes. Despite the cold, we were soon sweating from our walking efforts. There were also a few cafes and snack stalls if you need a break.
We spent about 3 hours here, before heading to 자갈치시장 Jagalchi Market 札嘎其市場.
