Sanri is Joonggu, Busan’s old name. It is located between the Gum Soo-hyun’s Music Salon on Sanbok road and the Mildawon Era café.
Its monorail, Korea’s first monorail, and street gallery art festival draws visitors. The monorail is officially called the Yongjudong Oreumgil Monorail. It started its operation on September 11th of 2014 and is used by approximately 500 people everyday.
The hours of operation are from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Public transportation, the bus, is easy to come by when you climb down the steep stairs. The houses in the village are beautifully decorated with various murals in the street gallery. It is a popular tour route to start the mural village tour which ends at Central Park.
Another attraction to see at the Sanri village is the Sanri Cooperative next to the monorail. The Cooperative was created by the the Sanbok road renaissance project. It was awarded the Mayor’s award during the 50th anniversary celebration in 2014 for being an outstanding community. This cooperative is working as the base facility as the number of tourists is growing from the Sanbok road renaissance project.
On the first floor of the local community hall, here is a café and the local farmers market. On the second floor, there is a co-working area and a seminar room. The third floor is used for office space and the library. Village Green Market is held on the last Saturday of every month and a rice-cake mallet experience program is offered.
Busan anticipates the Sanri local community hall to act as the main driver of Sanbok road residents’ community revitalization and cultural activity opportunities in collaboration with the Gum Soo-hyun’s music salon, Elderly Job Support Center, and the Mildawon Era.
