Description: 

Insa-dong, located in the heart of the city, is an important place where old but precious and traditional goods are on display.  

It is a representative tourist attraction with small galleries, small antique shops and traditional food. 

Walking along the street, the traditional craft shop selling brushes, fans, old books and ceramics and the fun of wandering around cute props are joys that can only be enjoyed in Insa-dong. 

The scent of traditional teahouses and the smell of pajeon(Korea Pabcakes) in restaurants also add to its share. 

Every Saturday and Sunday, the entire street is designated as a car-free street, which is good for leisurely walking with family members.
