Antiques in Insadong

I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy the area of Insadong in Seoul. Although it is extremely touristy, I feel it is immensely popular for good reason. The streets and alleys are made of brick and much of the architecture is of an older style. There are mountains and temples surrounding the area and there are many antiques and interesting tourist trinkets to be purchased here.

I love the antiques and dusty old things for sale on the streets.
I love the smell of food cooking from carts as I walk by.
I love the hustle and bustle and people weaving through crowd.
I LOVE Insadong market!
