  • The entire district of Insadong are well known for their stores where you can find a lot of traditional things from clothes to furniture, small and big things to buy. As well as in all price ranges. Is possible to haggle on the prices. Here you will find the unique things from the country.

  • Contains few stores shops on the ground floor, full of originality. Insa-dong branch of bibigo season Pasang is turned from the first floor down to the basement, and the Korea food buffet. Even there, a little bit slowly is recommend only lots of Korea cuisine to try. Take from the buffet table in addition to also order hot pot (desk top card placed in the place of the buffet table and brought to the table pot).

  • Packed with tourist. Place to go to get souvenirs but bear in mind its on tourist price. Nothing fancy, but its good to walk, there are a lot of restaurants with local delights, worth trying!
  • A tourist spot,great for a walk around ,with plenty of restaurants. Currency exchange rate is much more better than airport. Was there 3/19
  • It's an iconic place where foreigners visit and buy lots of tradition things
  • Compared to Hongdae, Myeongdong, this place lacks much lustre. Less options for you to shop but also much quieter if you want to avoid the crowd.
  • Go here for the arts, crafts, and souvenirs. It's quite touristy but great place to find Korean souvenir shopping and tea houses.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
