Why locals love it

Insadong is an interesting area where artists sell their products. Also small shops with painting articles can be found there. Look in the side streets for nice small restaurants with good food.
Also there's so many cafes and local Korean cuisine.

Why you should visit it

If you are into arts, drop by to this beautiful row of shop houses. This is the place that we feel still keeps check their Korean heritage. Even the word, Starbucks is spelled in Hangul. Amazing. You can taking in the sights and wandering through the streets.

Special tip

Please make sure you look at the galleries, because there's so much lovely art work.

What was once a tourist trap, and a junkyard for cheap knock-off vintages; has now been reconstructed to please both the foreign, and local wanders who are looking for an adventure on a night out. The expansion has provided a stage as well as a spotlight for the young and skilled artists and craftsmen alike. Insadong has granted us with an opportunity to appreciate the aesthetics of Korean tradition and its predecessors' knowledge. Gift yourself a souvenir that actually has quality and everyday usage.
