Insadong is a small shopping street filled with souvenir shops and interesting food joints. I visited almost all the main shopping areas in Seoul, but enjoyed Insadong the most for souvenirs. Its also a very nice place to walk around window shopping as well. Picked up a few cool souvenirs from National Souvenir Centre where the they spoke english and were more than willing to explain the details of each souvenir.

Insadong is a must-visit place whenever I stay in Seoul. You can find all kinds of souvenirs from the cheap mass produced items to the unique handcrafted ones. Not to mention the wonderful restaurants along the small side-streets of Insadong.

In my opinion, this is the best market for souvenir shopping. There are many unique art shops to buy one-of-a-kind handmade/hand painted works. I bought a small ceramic oil lamp, some paintings, and a custom made music box, among other things. And the prices are very reasonable. It’s a great place for getting gifts for others too. And there are plenty of the cheap, mass produced souvenirs around as well. It’s an easy walk to or from Jogyesa Temple, so stop by both.

So charming. Korean craft, food and art. You can really find it all. I went with my mom and kids. We found a place to take pictures with formal korean dresses. It was so much fun.

This was a place I like with lots and lot’s of things to do and see and feel and taste and eat..you would need a couple of days or more just to be able to see all the interesting places and shops to visit. But what I like the most is the side streets where actually locals eat and chill..you’d need to visit to be able to understand the fathoms of this area.. a more cheaper area than Myeondong-gil aswell..
