No visit to Seoul is complete without exploring the capital's
heart and artistic soul: the alleyways of the Insadong district,
known colloquially as 'Mary's Alley'. More than 100 antique shops
and countless art galleries are tucked away here, delighting
collectors and casual browsers alike. From ancient Chinese pottery
to yellowed books and delicate jewellery, most visitors manage to
find a treasured souvenir or special gift among the quaint stores.
There are plenty of restaurants, taverns and traditional teahouses
in the area, too, to ensure shoppers stay refreshed.
