We visited at night on a weekday. It was really quiet. There seem to be many independent artists shops here. If you are looking for unique & customisable gifts this place is for you.

Unique shopping centre with well made items that I didn’t see elsewhere. Easy to navigate and can be done in a short period of time - this is not a mega mall like Lotte! Highly recommend the shop selling personalised luggage tags while you wait and Arty Party which has lovely unique jewellery.

Shopping center in the center of Insadong. Interesting layout with a circular walkway going to the top floor. A bit of a tourist trap but fun anyway

Nothing much with stores selling handicrafts expensively. Only shop making good business is the one selling pancakes that shaped like poop and the poop cafe at the highest level.

Strolling along the alleys of Insadong cultural neighborhood on a September Sunday , we chanced upon Ssamziegil . It is a four levels small mall located right in the centre of Insadong. The architecture of this mall is unique as the walkway is spiral-like that connects each level and encircles the open courtyard. Such layout of the mall is welcoming as we did not have to climb steps! It was interesting to explore each level as this is a cultural mall that features artisans' artpieces with workshops and galleries for viewing pleasure. The entire mall with the well decorated walls, colourful and creative theme offered a charming atmosphere. There were also many interesting shops selling traditional artworks and handmade crafts like hairclips, brooches, caps, bags, and apparels and knick knacks. This is certainly the place to get your Korean souvenirs. I was very glad to spot a nice shawl from a small store and got it at a good price. With my friend, we strolled each level of Ssamziegil and found an interesting cafe at the roof top level, which we felt was a pleasant place to relax with drinks and enjoy a good view of the exciting neighbourhood.
