Insadong, Seoul

#2 of 64 in Neighborhoods in South Korea
Must see · Neighborhood · Other
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.

  • Lots of terrific shops and restaurants, it's a fun artsy district that we had a great couple of hours in. Try the "dragon's beard" sweets made right there on the street!  more »
  • Insadong has loads of shops and galleries, loads of coffee houses and restaurants. The palaces are a shortish walk away as is the Hanok area which is also worth the trip.  more »
