Antique shopping might seem more synonymous with a lazy Sunday morning in the English countryside, but Seoul is well known for Insadong Street, a place in the city that’s perfect for souvenir shopping. 
 
Insadong Street spans over 700 meters and is no run-of-the-mill shopping street, but rather a cultural hub where craftsmen and painters gather to practice their trade and sell goods. Local festivals and events often take place on Insadong, meaning a visit here is much more about soaking up the culture and getting up close and personal with native Koreans than simply spending money.
 

Insadong is shut-off to traffic during weekends, making it pleasant to stroll up and down.
