Owner description: Though touristy, this vibrant neighborhood is one of the cultural and artistic hubs of Seoul. Great tea houses, restaurants, street food, galleries and souvenir shops make it a must-see area.

Don't miss this buzzing, beautiful district full of boutiques, arts 'n' crafts, ceramics dealers, antiques shops, great little restaurants and the famous tearooms ... plus wonderful street traders selling exotic foods, including the best sweet dumplings ever !

Got to go to Insadong if you are in Seoul even though it is a street for tourists. Many interesting little shops to see and the best buy is the Korean Celedon Tea Cups.

The entire street bustle in activities from 10 am until about 6. Crowds start to disperse as most shops, galleries awould have closed by 8.30 pm. But tucked away in many of the branched out lanes, the restaurants and tea houses are in full swing. There are many restaurants serving Korean food and really you be spoilt of choices.

The first time for me in Korea and I was visiting in Insadong three days in row.This place was an awesome place for the tourist and both sides of Insadong street are lined with many shops are selling traditional Korean craft work and souvenir.If you want to get yourself an authentic traditional Korean outfit ,HANBOK and you can feel the real Korea atmosphere as it is a nice and unique area!

This little street area is nice for a stroll, there are a number of galleries, heaps of shopping (although most souvieners will be slightly dearer than more local markets), but well worth a wonder and stop for some street snacks.
