Wander into small boutique shops owned by locals, followed by a stroll past countless vendor stalls offering authentic Korean goods.

True to its name, Insadong Antique Street offers a good number of antique books, costumes, and paintings, some of which may date back over a thousand years. But you can also find more modern furniture and accessories, as well as plenty of delicious Korean food like the traditional rice cakes and tea.
