Seoul: Insa-dong revisited

We had been to Insa-dong before, but this quirky neighbourhood was so close to our hotel that we decided to visit it again.

It is great for people watching, visiting art galleries, discovering little shops that sell artwork, handmade crafts and antiques – and to try lots of different street snacks and tea.

Insadong is filled with traditional knick-knacks. I love that old and young, locals and tourists go shopping there!

It is quite easy to get to Insa-dong: you can take the underground Line 1 and exit at station Jongno 3(sam)-ga Station using Exit 4 or 5 or take Line 3 to Anguk Station and use Exit 1 or 6. Make sure you’ve got about an hour time (at least) so you can stroll into the shops and cafes and explore the area!
