51 일째 – Busan 부산 – Gamcheon Culture Village (감천문화마을)

Busan field trip part 2!

We actually stopped and had a small 1-hour buffet before moving on.  This restaurant is located at the BIFF and it is about 15000 per person .. gasp!

… and then we were on our way to the Gamcheon Village.  On the way, we went on the Gwangwalli Bridge … I’ve only seen it from the beach.

As with most places in Busan, the homes are built upwards towards the hills.  Gamcheon was one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Busan and though there was communal revitalization, the government had put more money to revitalizing the area.

There was a lot of visitors to this place.  Most of the stores on the main street are cafes and souvenir stores.  It is quite rare to souvenir shops in Korea (or I just haven’t been going to any attractions!)

In any case, I beelined to the first place that has stairs in order to get the best view!

I even took a panorama!

The village has many small alleys and within it are small art galleries and various murals on the walls.

There is also the Little Prince sitting on the top looking down into the city.  The statue has since became a must-see attraction here.  There is even a line up just to take a photo next to the prince!

I bought a small magnet 🙂

The village also has a well, but the story has since passed my memory.  The well is now closed.

The view is great everywhere you go.

… it is possible that I might have missed some attractions points … there were so many!

After visiting the village, the class went back to Gyeongsan and I remained in Busan to find my friend.  My friend works in a coffee shop up in Yangsan, almost an hour away from here.

… and this was the coffee she made 🙂

January 21, end.
