Just a few blocks from Gyeongbokgung Palace, we walked to the neighborhood of Insa-dong where stores are lined up on the streets selling traditional korean crafts and goods.

If you are ever in Seoul, there is no better place to shop for souvenirs than Insa-dong. I had a hard time buying stuff because everything was interesting and cheap.

Ssamziegil has been marked as the ‘Special Insa-dong within Insa-dong’. This unique area was designed in such a way by connecting its charming alleys in the form of a spiral-like stairway. As you do your window-shopping through the lovely, cozy stores all the way to the top, you will arrive at Haneulmadang where you can get a extraordinarily clear view of the sky.
