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.

  • Must go for foreigners!! Insadong street is such a cool historical place in Korea. There are traditional shops and restaurants all around you can really get a taste of Korea. We went during a public holiday so it was quite busy and it rained. I want to go back and see more. Most of the shop owners spoke a little bit of English so it was so nice to feel comfortable. They have an abundance of souvenirs for very cheap and of course you’re supporting local so it feels great!
  • A large street with lots of restaurants and cafes! There are also a lot of shops selling traditional and handmade products. It is impressive
