I went here last week with 2 Korean teachers from my school. It was very nice. A lot of traditional things. Being rather new to Korea, I found it helpful to have English speaking Koreans with me so I could fully appreciate what I was seeing. We shopped a bit, ate a traditional meal, and had tea at a traditional tea house. I would recommend this part of town to any visitor. I'm taking a friend there, when she visits.
I love Insadong due to it's variety of activities and restaurants. Over the weekend, it is even better with performances and flea market. This is a must place for tourist in Seoul. Tourist officers here are very helpful and informative.
located near/in jongno, a place which i recommend to everyone going to seoul, insadong is a nice little pocket of korean culture. various old style restaurants and bars pepper the area, along with places to buy teas and local crafts. also a very fun toy store! i'm not much into shopping, but if you're looking for souvenirs to take back, definitely get them here.
I liked experiencing a traditional street in Seoul; you get a taste (or sip of tea!) into the older, less modernized Korean lifestyle.
Tucked away in a country that is becoming more and more "Westernized," Insadong is a refreshing change of pace for both tourists, expats, and locals.
This is the place to go to for more of your traditional shopping, and Korean specialized items. I love this place, and my mom visited this section of town three times. They have everything from eating, to household items, to just souveniors and collectables. Eveything sold has great prices. I would reccommend this. If you like amythest, this is the place to go to!
Insadong is the place to go if you want a truly "Korean" experience. Insadong is most widely known for its attention and preservation of the Korean Culture. Its a fun place to be and the teahouses are amazing! Great entertainment if you go at night, too. Lots of great stores to shop in and even to browse. Friendly storeowners who are willing to negotiate.
This tree-lined street is full of traditional Korean merchandise at various cost levels. Here you will find handmade papers, art supplies for Korean crafts, pottery, jewelry, antiques, masks, etc. Mingled in between the shops are various art galleries, with worthwhile exhibitions (featuring primarily contemporary works). Traditional Korean restaurants and tea shops are also peppered throughout the area, on quaint side streets. On weekends, the street is closed to traffic, providing a pedestrian friendly experience, occasional street performers, and temporary vendors. Be sure to notice that some stores and galleries have spaces on upper floors as well. It is easy to spend an entire day here if time allows. You come away with exposure to many forms of Korean arts and culture.
