Insa-dong, Seoul (인사동)

It is located in the heart of the Seoul city, an important place where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. There is one main road in Insa-dong with alleys on each side. Within these alleys are galleries and traditional restaurants, teahouses, and cafes. 

This is the place where I bought keychains and other traditional items in much cheaper price. Many tourists visit Insa-dong as you can experience and see traditional Korean culture firsthand, and also purchase pieces of fine art. On the street you can eat Korean taffy and traditional pajeon (green onion pancake), and lose yourself in all the joyous festivities of the street, I think during weekends. But I went there Monday so the street was a bit quiet. 

There is a direct subway line from Euljiro 3-ga going to Insadong. Ride Line 3 and go to Anguk Station Exit 6.
