Insadong



There are several spots one must visit in Seoul and Insadong is one of them, where are lots of antique shops so people can buy some Korean traditional souvenirs and gifts. Also, this is the place where you hear the various languages from the tourists, mainly Japanese, Chinese and English. I do not recommend spending too much money here because of the shops' fixed prices and relatively expensive food due to 'Insadong premium.' Instead, you can go for Namdaemun market where you can enjoy price negotiations with store owners by saying "Kakajuseyo," meaning 'Please cut down the price', in rough Korean and with a cute look.
