South Korea, Busan Guide (B): Busan Gamcheon Village a Santorini of South Korea

Woke up early in the morning to start my journey to Gamcheon Culture Village. I started my journey from Sasang Station , purple line, I easily can go to green line 2 for interchange to orange line 1.

-You will come to intersection don't worry, just walk and then turn right at the corner then walk straight until you see Cancer Hospital on your right.

Don't worry about where to stop because so many people will stop there too and they are just tourist like you.

Gamcheon Culture Village are well known as Santorini of Korea and also Korea's Machu Pichu. To me this place is very attractive and beautiful. This place is originally a sanctuary for Korean War refugees in early 50s. The refugees then stayed and settled in this neighborhood of Busan. The residents then grows to more 4,000 residents and around 800 houses in the area. Tourist can enjoy beautiful art and mural in this village too. Not too forget the fabulous atmosphere and view while walking around this village.
