Samsung NX Traveller Korea – Day 6 Yeosu / Busan Gamcheon Culture Village

We went to their cable car and sat through a tour of their port and then took a rail bike ride along the coast. Then it is
Busan Gamcheon Culture Village (Little Greek Village of Busan)
The Gamcheon Culture Village used to be a shanty town for the poor during the 50s to the 70s. Over the years, the settlement located between Oknyeobong Peak and Cheonmasan Mountain slowly took on a more colourful visage and created the now famous Gamcheon Culture Village. Quite honestly I don’t know why it is called a Culture Village. An arts enclave sounds a bit more appropriate to the area. Imagine colourful tiles, murals, art installations, statues and even a small statue of the Little Prince (by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry) over looking the entire place. This is a place waiting to be discovered and explore through its nooks and crannies.
Busan Express Tour, Tiffany 21 Sunset Cruise and A bit of Night Stroll through the streets of Busan
Tiffany 21 is a boat the provides buffet dinner and a sunset cruise of the Busan bay. Later did a small walkabout around the area we had some drinks. Feels that it is kind of far from the actual buzz perhaps can explore more when I am visiting again in May.
