Cool place to visit while in Seoul. Lots of good restaurants and shops. Wasn’t too packed today when we went around lunchtime. Lots of tourists and locals in the area for a Monday.
We had lunch at a popular Italian restaurant, got some ice cream, some 떡 (rice cake), and a pair of ear rings.
Was surprised to see a Beavis and Butthead poster! LMAO

Recommended by a local to visit which turns out to be one of the most memorable moment of our trip. The area is made up of connecting alleys which makes you feel like you are in a maze but there's something good waiting for you at every turn. Quaint little shops and cafes converted from ancient architectures filled up the streets, displaying a perfect blend of modern and history in the heart of Seoul.

Bukchon village is located on a hill with steep streets at some areas while Ikseon-dong is on flat land. There are many shops that sell souvenirs, some cafes and street vendors here. There are some Instagram worthy gems hidden among the streets. Do wander around. There is also a place to get a fortune cookie somewhere in there. It was interesting to see the locals getting the cookies.

Ikseon-Dong, just a short walk over from Insa-dong has its charm. This tiny traditional area is full of charm. Tiny alleys lead to hidden gems - colorful souvenir shops, themed cafes, tea houses and restaurants. There are clothes shops too. If you are a photography enthusiast there are many spaces and interior-exterior design spaces waiting to be captured. You will be walking around with a smile, but beware this place is so crowded. When I visited it seemed like half of Korea was there. I didn’t mind too much, other than there were line ups for cafes and restaurants. I will go back again and try to get there before lunch time.

Opposite Makers hotel where we stayed. Fablous could have stayed here all day and night. Cute shops. Restaurants. Cafes. Bar. Filled with charm. Gets fairly busy but not uncomfortable. Loved wandering the cute streets!

Visited this area with my wife one night. I was kind of overwhelmed by how much details, both big and small, there are in this place. While the structures are traditional, everything else certainly are not. There seems to be something to see at every corner. Lots of chic places to eat and shop.

I would recommend this place to any young couple on nice evening date.

For older folks like myself (37), I thought some of the cafes and restaurants look rather inviting. Unfortunately at the time of my visit, I already had my dinner at Insadong.

This place turnd hot spot recently for dating and SNS. Every place catch eyes.
Restaurants, cafes, bakeries, pubs, accessoiries. All places are good for pictures and as you imagined many people who take pictures. There is custom rental shops which you can try on early 1900's.
We tried grape fruit Bingsu (shaving milk ice) that cool down us.

Steam buns is fine but French toast doesn't taste good. Crowded with queue. Staff not friendly when asking for ice water.

There are many shops and restaurants / cafés. It has a really nice mood eve though it is really touristic. I had dumplings there, they were delicious. There is also an old school arcade games room, really nice to hangout a few hours.
