The view is spectacular, the murals are gorgeous, and the walk down is filled with good restaurants and locals. I would highly suggest taking a bus to the top and then making the walk down. You're not going to want to walk all the way...More

Take line 1 to Toseong station, exit 6 .Just take a taxi from here. It's only 3000 krw. Do not walk there because it's up a very steep hill and quite a distance away.

most interesting set-up with colourful roofs and painted walls, narrow & winding streets that meander past quaint shops and houses; a must-visit attraction.

Nothing interesting... more for youngsters who wanna take cute photos. Small area. You'll finish walking in less an hour.

This was my first stop in Busan after checking-in at my guesthouse and I am glad I did not save it for last! This village is built on a mountainous area so roads can be steep and might require more energy to get around. Wear...More

Unfortunately I had a rainy weather while visiting the village, but it was great anyway. A lot of coffee shops, art shops and activities for kids. You can spend a couple of hours just walking around the cute streets and enjoying the colourful view.

Colour neighbourhood, instragramers will love it, if you can have a coffee or a drink in one of the rooftop coffee-shops, looking to the wharf

Very easy to reach via public bus. I have limited time when I visited Gamcheon and I was not able to walk slowly and feel the village.

Be there to see the housing structure and colours. There are shops there for little shopping as well. Some cafes but no decent place for lunch though. Takes about 2 hours to complete the walk.

Its take about 2 hours to walk around the town. There's some eatery and cafe where you can relax and have some food. The people there are very helpful and friendly
