“Worth the climb up the hill!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Something perhaps off the beaten track, but after a walk around the harbour and a quick lunch get ready for the climb up the hill to see all the houses, walls and paths painted in various ways from trompe l'oeil to murals to various artistic styles. The café at the top does a really nice coffee and you can relax and take in the amazing views

“"worth a visit"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The village is near the fishingport ganguan so you can visit 2 attractions at 1 go.The difficulty is ,it is located uphill so those without proper shoes and those who are afraid of steps may not be a good place to visit.It is called a" art village" but actually it is walls painted infront or near the house of someone who actually lives there.Very creative and colourful,you cannot take a 'bad picture' cos everywhere is so cute and nice.For people who are not so keen for art or painting ,it is also worth a visit cos the view from the village looking down at the fishing port is beautiful.There are also little cafe around for you to have a cup of coffee.It is worth to spend 1 or 2 hours there.
