Insa-dong is located in the heart of the city, with a large boulevard at its center. It is surrounded by lots of small alleyways with all sorts of galleries, traditional craft shops and art shops. Insa-dong is famous for offering ceramics, all kinds of lacquer carvings, calligraphy, old paintings, objet d'art and valuable furniture all in one place. One of the many pleasures of strolling through Insa-dong and going shopping, is coming across all kinds of traditional Korean restaurants and teahouses along the narrow streets.
It is an icon building in Insadong. There were many small shops selling different things, from personalised travel luggage tags, costume jewellery, personalised woodcraft for welcoming guests to your house, clothings, eateries, etc. I would say every business is showcasing its uniqueness. And bring more money with you because many of these items are so tempting to own it. Outside this icon building are the streets of houses selling all types of souvenirs, restaurants, and so on. And one of the lane can bring you to the Joygesa Temple too.
There are Rensi Tung Street, Yunlan Palace, Caoxi Temple and Puxin Pavilion near Rensi Tung. This time we went mainly to Rensi Tung Street for a turn. We took the subway line 3 at Exit 6 of Anguo Station and walked for 5 or 6 minutes. Rensi Tung Street is a traditional cultural street in Korea, which can buy antiques, Korean clothes, traditional handicraft and other souvenirs. The traditional Korean tea house on both sides of the street, Korean restaurants with traditional decorative style, and roadside snack stalls selling traditional snacks on the street are the main features of Rensi Tung, and it is also a good choice to eat while strolling. We bought many kinds of souvenirs in the street. We basically have to pay cash. We must bring enough cash for shopping. Don't leave any regrets. An hour's stroll is almost enough.
The Rensi Cave near Jingfu Palace is my favorite scenic spot. It has the same classical tranquility as Jingfu Palace. It also adds a little popularity and vitality because of the properties of an antique street. Of course, Mingdong is not the only place to go shopping in Korea. It is also a recommended shopping place. It combines shopping, delicacies, clothing and cosmetics. You can wear Korean clothes in concession to Jingfu Palace to take photos. You can also experience traditional Korean food, cold noodles and mixed rice here. Compared with Mingdong, there are not many cosmetics stores here, and the staff are also able to speak Chinese. Don't worry about language barriers.
In the Korean era (1392-1910), the Rensi Cave was a densely populated area of government and two classes of private houses. Since the late period of Japanese occupation of Korea, the two classes of Rensi Cave, which had fallen down, took out their household goods and sold them for money. As a result, some antique shops have emerged here as the times require. Later, Rensi Tung Antique Street had galleries for exhibiting and selling antiques and related shops, and Rensi Tung gradually became a cultural street for buying and selling cultural commodities. Generally speaking, Rensi Cave refers to the area that passes through Rensi Cave intersection from Anguo Cave Circle Island to the front of Tagu Park on 2nd Street of Zhonglu. Rensi Cave is centered on the Central Street, surrounded by many alleys, many and dense, like spider webs. There are many famous places of Rensi Cave hidden in Hutong.
This street is really busy. When we went, protests, street performances, cheering audiences, and waiting police. Interesting pictures rarely seen in China. Seeing the "everybody "sign, we arrived at Ssamziegil, the most famous creative market in Rensi Cave, which is very popular. Various creative gadgets attracted a large number of young people. The price is not cheap. Many interesting things in the shop can't be photographed.
Rensi Cave is not far from Guanghua Gate and Jingfu Palace. The first feeling of Rensi Cave is similar to that of an antique street in China. Friends who like to buy Korean traditional folk goods can go shopping in Rensi Cave. Fortunately, they can also see staff members wearing Korean clothes performing in the streets. It is very lively!! PS. If you want to continue shopping after visiting Rensi Cave, you can go to Mingdong to buy it!!
Some of the old buildings still have Korean flavor. You can eat snacks along the street, look at Korean houses, Korean culture, experience the feeling of wearing Korean clothes is also good.
Little Literature and Art has been to Rensi Cave for three times, each time with a new harvest (*^ _^*). It is loved by food lovers. It is about then it will be burned. It is really famous and delicious - red bean stuffing is sweet but not greasy - suitable for you who love dessert and fear fat! And the O&39; solluc green tea and green tea ice cream from Jeju Island really taste pure! There are street snacks, from fried rice cakes to ice cream, lovely cafes hidden in street corners, small corners full of children's fun, suitable for spending afternoon time.
A good place to visit, need to slowly go to experience, where rented Korean clothes, 24,000 rented for four hours, but the hair is too short, can not make very beautiful hair accessories, wearing Korean clothes to walk around the streets sometimes feel strange, but see the same people wearing Korean clothes feel nothing.
I don't know why there are so many people here. After a long time, I found that this place belongs to the place where Korean culture spreads. We can find many traditional ink and ink inkstones, and then many creative handicraft shops. There are many foreigners and not many Chinese come here. After all, those things are not rare. I bought an engraving pen to use when I was ready to sign a big deal.
