I thought visiting another culture village like Gamcheon in Busan would be nice, but this one was not great. It didn't have nearly as many nice little shops, and was just painted walls and a lot of tourists.

Lovely place with a view. The slopes are steep and lotsa stairs so better wear covered shoes. Many cute paintings!

Loved seeing some young artists putting their mark on the walls. It was fun watching the creative poses of some ppl in front of the walls. Fun walking along the alleys with interesting houses along the way.
