Insa-dong is one of the most memorable attractions in Seoul and represents the focal point of Korean traditional culture and crafts. Stores in Insa-dong specialize in a wide variety of goods like hanbok (traditional clothing), hanji (traditional paper), traditional teas, pottery, and folk crafts.
Every weekend, some of the Insa-dong streets are blocked off from traffic and turns into a lively cultural space. Along Insa-dong Street, stores set-up booths outside and other traders set-up stalls (Korean snacks, arts and craft, buskers, etc.). There are traditional performances as well. Insa-dong is especially popular with foreign tourists but locals are equally present, this is where one can experience and see traditional Korean culture firsthand, and find themselves totally immersed in all the joyous festivities of the street, not forgetting the (souvenir) shopping.
