From Busan subway station, we took the Exit 6 of Toseong subway station. We then walked straight, turned right and kept walking until we passed by a hospital and we took a local bus nearby. You can take bus no.2 or 2-2 and get down at Gamcheon Elementary School. The bus ride was KRW1100. We purchased the village map for KRW2000 and followed the route to collect 12 stamps. Based on my reading, the number of stamps has been increased from 9 to 12 now, with changes of location. I thought it would be good so that all parts of the village can be explored and not to be neglected.

Most of the time, we followed the painted fishes that swim through the village as they brought us to the major popular sites, including stamp-collecting spots. We took 3 hours to complete the task, of course we got lost few times and we took some time-off to rest and to find our way out. Although it was a leg-tiring journey, we had fun and enjoyed our time in this colorful village. At the end of this stamp-hunting, we were rewarded with 3 postcards of the Gamcheon Culture Village.

One can go back to Busan via the same route but should take the bus at the opposite side of the road. We lost our way and we came across with a local bus NO.17 if not mistaken, and we got down at the Nampo-dong area, which was our destination. Although this took us longer time, yet we were happy as the bus took us to some other area that we did not initially plan to.

Expect to ride a neighborhood bus to get there and do lots of walking (with inclines). Worth the visit. You can get a map of the village for 2,000won at the Information Center

The village is hilly. There are maps to buy for 2000 won.
They give you 3 routes based on time 1-1/2 and 2 hours .
It's very colorful and worth the visit .

This place was the best part of my trip to Busan, nice village with lots of places and corners to explore. Remember to purchase the stamp map at the information counter for 2000 KRW and collect the various stamps located throughout the village. They even give out postcards at designated stamp locations.
