Shop the many treasures at Insadong in Seoul

The tourist hub of Seoul, this tree-lined main street crisscrossed by alleys is packed with small shops selling every type of craft item from high-quality ceramic pots, embroidery and antiques to tourist knick-knacks. Countless small private galleries sell all genres of art, and street stalls sell tempting traditional Korean snacks, such as rice cakes and toffee served on a stick. On weekends the street is blissfully car-free and has a festival atmosphere with more stalls than usual and even the occasional street musician.
