The “Santorini” of Busan. I got a couple of chuckles and laughs from the Korean locals here. I haven’t visited the real Santorini so I can’t really compare, or comment which one is better. What I do know was this used to be a slum!
Yah crazy eh. How could it have been a slum before? Well apparently the government poured a lot of investments into this area in hopes of turning it into a tourist attraction. And I think they succeeded!
The address in Gamcheon is 177-11, Gamnae 2-ro, Saha-gu, Busan
부산광역시 사하구 감내2로 177-11,
Which you can show to any taxi driver. Once there, you will find a viewing platform of the entire cultural village. Here’s another shot.
It was a windy day so we weren’t able to stay on the viewing platform as we’d like. Although now that I think about it, not sure if we would have even if it was a nice sunny day. Probably would have complained it was too hot. Anyways doesn’t matter.
Once you are done with a godbizzillion pictures, you can proceed to walk through the streets of the village. There you will find a lot of shops and cafes.
Since we just had a big seafood meal, we decided to drop by one of the cafes. No pictures here because someone would want credits for it, and I ain’t doing that.
haha. Gamcheon is nice!
