South Korea slum revamped with arts

Hillside shanty town has become a tourist attraction, gaining nearly 100,000 visitors last year.

    South Korea's rapid economic boom has left much of the country looking like a concrete jungle.

    Now architects are pushing a new development style, which aims to preserve the old while introducing new concepts.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Busan, where the shanty town of Gamcheon has been turned into an arts neighbourhood.
