Interesting village decorated in artsy murals located up in the hills. Won't recommend visiting in summer though because of the heat.

I took my South American friends here once when they visited me in Busan and they said it reminded them of favellas back home. This place has a unique feel to it. The neighbourhoods near Nampo Dong and the old parts of Busan that housed refugees after the Korean War really stand out from the modern-day Korea of cafes and large department stores. There are cute murals along this area to explore, and lots of shops and cafes to keep you entertained all afternoon. Easily a top site in Busan.

This charming little village is not far from the city centre, and it is a perfect place to take some selfies and wander the streets for the afternoon. A once poverty stricken village of refugees has been transformed into a cultural and artistic attraction in Busan. Full of colourful lego houses that are situated on a mountain top, it's nicknamed "The Machu Picchu of Busan." As you stroll through the village itself you will see many art installations, murals and sculptures scattered throughout the shanty houses and it's a truly beautiful site to see.
