I went there in Nov by day tour. The tour guide arranged the visit here as our last destination at 4pm. The view is stunning with the perfect sunshine at that moment. We took great pictures there and the street nearby has lots of painting,...More

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

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.

Well you could bring stroller with you but the place you can visit may be limited as there are many stairs to explore. Going with kids need more careful as most of the stairs doesn't have handle. Most of the subway have... More
