We visited Insadong on a Monday afternoon, just before sending off one of our travel buddies. We took the subway train from Seoul Station to Anguk Station and took Exit #6, walked the street and joined the subway again on the station before Anguk.
The street gives you a bit of the local but modern culture as products sold here are either new creative crafts or art from street galleries. Souvenirs of course are abundant here, but people are most amazed with the unique finds.
I myself got a miniature set of Korean sochu and beer bottles since I love to collect miniature items. I also found those cute socks whose design cuts across both sock. I got a fat penguin design and a Paul Frank monkey design. At Samziegil, I got myself a personalized casual bracelet made of unique charms like camera, padlock, watch, etc - a little bit like the Pandora style bracelets.
