  • This is a nice shopping mall with lots of interesting and unusual shops. It is a great place to spend a few hours browsing the stores and enjoying a beverage at the poop-themed cafe. 
  • Souvenir shop around when shopping in Insa-dong. Some shops have a store selling Authentic craftsman so feel free to buy. Ssamziegil is in only one place the narrow shop-lined but unexpectedly goods are hard to see. I need a little courage to really be curious items especially during the seasonal pattern cooling cooling heavy glass door is closed, look through the window to enter the shop. You hear the language barrier there, especially price or more shops to the aggressive business, of course, but not yet in the foreign tourists it's hard to think is intimidating. Many shops with unique items is not at all however each household. It's a toy handmade by the owner ", designed by the artist in Korea. You can pick up not only Korea sweets as gifts of the soul travel, and relatively easily available for purchase in many things. Than go in with such a meaning "something interesting is there" might be feeling about hanging out and look around at the right. If post-mortem duty requirements are met if you purchased here by the way there is refund counter in the basement, so after shopping to return tax money.
