Insadong, Seoul

(4.1/5 based on 4,600+ reviews on the web)
Once the prime district to find antiques and ancient art, Insadong remains at the heart of Seoul's cafe culture. The main street, which the municipality blocks off on weekends to allow for safe pedestrian traffic, branches off into narrow alleys, lined with art galleries, teahouses, and garden restaurants. Traditional and modern Korean art are available for viewing and purchase at over 100 local galleries. Munch on taffy and pajeon (Korean pancake) from street vendors while you explore. To visit Insadong on your trip to Seoul, use our Seoul trip itinerary maker.

  • Street of traditional markets, worth the visit. Just try to eat some things, but you're right before going on to have the description of what you eat in Korean, few places here speak English.

  • He's going to be honest, here to what I do not know well. Even special districts are old, not many tourists and is what you're going

  • 卖古物的街道,古物对于中国人来说是小巫见大巫啦,不过内巷很多吃的,而且很便宜,我用了30000韩币就吃了个酱蟹,在外面吃酱蟹很贵,建议在这里找吃的,就往内巷找就对了
