There are lots of nice murals here. They are located in different places, and not in one street.

Two of the murals are no longer in existence as they were painted over.

There are cafes.. quaint cafes all around! Really nice! There is also a souvenir shop, with a red scooter outside as props. Lots of nice costume jewellery there. Awesome service too.

As you walk, do keep your voices down. It is a residential estate.

I have attached on the directions i used. Basically, just walk towards Naksan Park. You will see it.

There are awesome view at the top of the village.

My family chanced upon this interesting mural village while we were tracking our way up the Seoul City Wall trail.

The murals added colours and uniqueness to this quite village.

We spent about an hour walking around the village enjoying the murals and some local snack and ice cream.

Recommendation :

1. an hour walkabout will be sufficient to see the place.
2. Wear comfortable shoes as there are slopes and many staircases to climb.
3. Go there if only you are interested in something different instead of the normal common touristy places.

for k-drama lover, this place is a must visit. You can find some drama shooting location here such as BongSun house from drama Strong Women Do Bongsun. The pictures also nice, but there are some pictures that has been deleted. And please noted, this is some neighbourhood area so you can not disturb people who live there by speak loudly. There even some old lady who seat in the street and holding a sign "please speak quietly".

It is tough walking upslope but you can take many nice pictures along the way, the murals on the walls are really beautiful!
There are many couples and students and you can try talking to them to get a taste of the locals!
At the top are a few cafe where you can sip your beer or coffee, and see the sunset, across the city!
Strongly recommend for travellers who want a different kind of feeling when in Seoul )beside all the shopping and eating)!

We dropped by Ihwa Mural Village after the hike up to Naksan Park (which was nice and quiet, but the view of Seoul that it offers isn't anything astounding). There were some nice murals in the village, but overall, it seems quite run down. It's worth noting that two of the more popular murals you might see online (the koi and flower murals on the staircases) were painted over by locals last year, so it was a bit disappointing.

I wouldn't recommend it for a short visit to Seoul as there are other places that might be more worth your time. If you do plan to go though, come in comfortable shoes as it's around a 20 minute walk uphill from the train station. There are a few coffee shops in the area if you plan to stay a bit longer and enjoy the place.
