Sick of palaces? Then this is a different, good 2-3 hour activity that you can do without a tour guide. Requires an average level of fitness; quite steep.

Very cool part of Seoul that has a number of pokey cafes from which you can view the city and have a coffee or beer.

The murals themselves are pretty good, but they could do with more. There is plenty more space to be utilised.

i am glad that i did not miss this in my itinerary. even though the murals are not as many as i expected (one of the main mural of goldfish on the staircases are gone), but i like the walk up the alleys, to experience what i've seen in many korean dramas (houses in the small hilly alleys).

the was no signboards/directions from Hyehwa station to go Ihwa Mural Village.. i just used Kakao map.

really recommended if you are up for a hike, otherwise, don't try it ^_^

I had a good time in Ihwa Village. The place is very cute, u can easily rent some uniform for your photos, and the price is very cheap

It is a very peaceful village located in Seoul. There are many murals which you can take a photo with. My favorite mural is the wing painting. The village has many stairs so make sure that you are in a fit condition when going there.

Well, the murals may not be as many as it used to be but it was still good to take that stroll up the slope towards Naksan Park. Nice cafe and little eateries as you go mural hunting. Milk Gonghang is a nice place to stop for ice-cream and coffee.
