Colorful roofs that seem to touch the sky,
A warmth that covers the whole village.
Gamcheon Culture Village is the Machu Picchu of Korea.

While the village’s beautiful landscape gave it the nickname of the Machu Picchu of Korea, the town was a part of the painful history of Busan. Refugees settled in Gamcheon Village during the Korean War and cultivated the mountainous region to make a living. In 2009, students, artists, and residents decorated the village as a part of the Village Art Project, and the town grew into a leading tourist attraction of Busan since then.

The Gamcheon Culture Village, now a landmark of west Busan, is favored by tourists as an experience-based destination. Follow the stamp map purchased at the village information center to complete the alley tour. First, stop by the small museum located at the Gamcheon Culture Village entrance to listen to the village’s story and start the tour.

Artworks and mural paintings turn the backward alley of Gamcheon into an animated village, attracting people’s attention along with various souvenir shops and workshops where you can stop by to attend the experience programs and create your own souvenir.

Most tourists who visit the Gamcheon Culture Village try out the hanbok program where various outfits, including traditional hanbok, modified hanbok, and outfits of the enlightenment era, can be rented for a low price. The photo zone where the little prince and the desert fox look over the village is the highlight of the alley trip. Despite the long queue, wearing beautiful hanbok to take a great picture is worth it. If you want to take a picture against the village backdrop, try the photo zone by the lighthouse.

The artistic atmosphere lives on in the alleys where the village of pastel-colored houses is beautifully lined up like a maze.
The little prince probably said this to tourists who visit the Gamcheon Culture Village:
“The village is beautiful, thanks to the residents and artists who tried to change the village.”
Gamcheon Culture Village has become a romantic town engraved with beautiful memories rather than the painful traces of Busan’s modern history.
