I admired the photos showing the red fish on the steps but unfortunately, it had been washed away by the rain and snow. There are too many interesting murals remained and the neighborhood worth to visit if you are in love with wall paintings.

Can shoot many shots along the alleys until top of the hill. It's better to visit in the morning (before noon) or late afternoon.

Nice pictures to be taken and there weren't that many people so the lines weren't that long. The walk to the public art along the Seoul wall is very nice and calming as well. It's a must do!

Easily reachable by the subway. Need to climb up the hills to reach the mural paintings area. I'll suggest to wear a comfortable shoe. :)
