In Seoul's place names, XX holes ("") are often seen, such as Myeongdong, Samcheong-dong, Insa-dong, and so on.
In fact, "hole" means street in South Korea, just like China's XX Street and XX Lane.
A few years ago, Insa-dong, which is still not famous, has become a place to visit in Seoul. Because it is not far from Sanqingdong, Gyeongbokgung and Bukchon, it can be arranged on the same day.
Insadong in Seoul is a unique place filled with many restaurants and cafes. There are many alleys where you can find niche teahouses that are traditional yet modern. This is a good place for shopping and eating! I recommend going to Insadong 🙂
Insadong is a tourist attraction in Jongno-gu for its shops and souvenir items. If you love Korean products to take home this is the best place to buy. There's a lot of food stall around the area too. There's a variety of antic shops as well. #wintergetaway
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.
