We can here on a late morning and took a walk around this area. There are quite a few shops selling art pieces and these are really quite nice. Of course, there are many souvenir shops and eateries, the latter of which you should explore...More
Where to start?
So many little shops, tea houses, restaurants to choose from. You can pass half a day there, play in the labyrinth, practice your baseball swing at the batting range, enjoy the free shows on the weekends but don't forget to visit those...More
Insadong is definitely a place of history. Souvenirs are cheapest here and aplenty. However, shops close early around 8-9pm. Ssamziegil is the main point here as the vendors are artists selling things you would not find elsewhere. The poop bread near the entrance tastes great.
Went to check out the different stores there and the 2Cat Cafe . Lovely , pretty stores and restaurants. Take your time when you are there to check out the lanes as well as u will be surprised what you’ll find
Spent an amazing afternoon roaming the Insadong old street. Many touristy shops but they are a great place to buy pretty souvenirs like pouches and purses in traditional pattern.
Many nice tea houses to have afternoon snack. Spent about 3-4 hours here.
Especially on friday nights, this maze of alleys are super-filled with good foods, good drinks, good scenes, and fantastic moments.
Lots of visual details. Architectures and interiors are unique and creative.
I felt a slower vibe in Insadong. Can't explain why, but meandering its many narrow side streets seemed the right thing to do. Many tourists and locals traverse its main street. I suggest you take the elevator to the top floor of Ssamzeigil Mall and...More
Insadong has many art galleries where the art is available for purchase. There are also several shops to purchase souvenirs and traditional Korean items. All of the signs are in Korean including Starbucks. Out of the many tourist markets in Seoul this is one of...More

Regarding jumbo taxi. We took one when we were there from incheon to Naaman and it cost about 100,000 won but there was a lot of traffic. Insadong should be better in terms of traffic but because it’s late there may be additional fees. I’d say count on $20 or less per person. Btw all / most taxis take credit cards so you don’t need cash. Jumbo taxis will take credit cards for sure.
There is a place outside the airport designated for jumbo taxis. I can’t remember where on the ground transportation island but follow signs to ground transportation and you’ll see signs (or follow the taxis’s leaving!)

Definitely walkable. I did that a week ago to get back to Myeongdong from Insadong. Only took about 15-20mins. Just use google maps to help you. You may use Cheonggyecheon stream to help you along the way.
