  • Information
    Dapsimni Antique Art Street is where travelers can stumble upon valuable old paintings, antique furniture and pottery as well as a variety of household items. These antique shops used to be scattered throughout the area of Cheonggyecheon Stream 8(pal)-ga, Itaewon, and Ahyeon-dong, but have gathered within Dapsimni area since the mid-1980s. There are approximately 140 shops along the streets.

    It is quite fun to browse through antiquities including wooden candlesticks, grandfather clocks, and old picture frames, items which are usually hard to find in regular stores. These rare items attract not only Koreans but also international visitors to this street. While shops in Insa-dong are popular for selling high-quality antiques, shops in Dapsimni Art Street are popular for offering a wide assortment of antiques at reasonable prices.
