    The neighborhood is surrounded by art galleries, antique stores and tea shops. A lot of overpriced tourist traps. A great crash pad for night owls who only have a night or two in Seoul. No amenities and the front desk clerk speaks no English.

    Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small
    neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects
    of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional
    Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts,
    fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir
    shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in
