Insa-dong
Insa-dong
In the middle of the ever-changing Seoul, the area of Insa-dong is a gathering place of traditional culture. Home to shops selling traditional crafts, art galleries, and traditional teahouses, Insa-dong is a must-visit location for anyone visiting Korea. Browsing the many shops gathered in the larger malls of Ssamzigil and Anyoung Insadong could almost be considered a rite of passage for tourists. And if you’re looking for souvenirs, you’re in the right place!

Anyoung Insadong Opened in 2019, Anyoung Insadong is a trendy multi-complex, taking traditional beauty and giving it a modern make-over. Popular gift items available here include wish bracelets, fusion snack kits, and yanggang (sweet red bean jelly) packaged in silk wrappings with traditional patterns. The basement level serves as a planned exhibition space, and on weekends, a craft free market is held here.

Personalized stamp For a truly one-of-a-kind gift, visit a personalized stamp shop. You can select everything from the stamp material and design engraved on the side, to the name or word and script type you want. You can get your name printed in English or Hangeul, but most people choose the Korean script for the uniqueness. Personalized stamps take around 15 minutes to make, and the cost can vary greatly depending on the material and designs selected, although most start at around 30,000 won.
