I really enjoyed walking around here and checking out the various wall murals, artsy corners as well as traditional houses and stores. Had a nice bingsu - shaved ice korean dessert with red beans to cool off from the heat. A lot of stores and restaurants were closed during the time I visited due to corona virus; however, I was lucky the streets were not packed with many tourists and people. Coming here offered a little escape into the past. I recommend visiting this artsy village when you are in Seoul.

Noisy tourists has become a big issues here. There are not much see anymore. A lot of murals are cleared by the residents. But still, it is a cute village with cute restaurants to dine in.

I reached Ihwa Mural Village around 5.30pm via Naksan Park (almost to sunset). Not much crowd which is lovely and i had the opportunity to just sit at one of the stairs waiting for sunset. it was calm, serene and very relaxing to just enjoy the environment and its surroundings. please be aware of the neighborhood and stay quiet.

Most of the murals are already faded. The neighborhood is clean but there is really nothing much to see anymore. There are also vandals written by the residents that they dont like tourist coming anymore because of the noise. Going there was difficult also even though I already hired a taxi from Bukchon Village.

Be prepared for a strenuous walk up a 45deg incline steep slope as u walk from the subway station to Ihwa Mural Village and Naksan Park. The murals are scattered far apart throughout the village so be prepared to walk more slopes as u look for the murals.
