We've visited Insadong last July and we ate at this place. I like the place, not too crowded compare to Myeongdong area. Ssamziegil is a nice place to shop and to buy souvenirs.

Great place for window shopping. We enjoyed the novelty of the Poo Cafe (top floor) and we had an excellent bibimbap for lunch at Gogung (basement).

A great place with little shops and galleries. There are all kinds of creative (and not so creative) people there selling their stuff. It is located on the main Insadong shopping street.

Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small
neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects
of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional
Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts,
fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir
shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in
particular has become a local institution for its
unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops
