Seoul, Ikseon-dong (익선동).
Located on the east side of Insa-dong, there are many Korean traditional houses, Hanok (한옥), which were gradually built since the 1920s, and some have a history of nearly 100 years.
In recent years, the number of cafes and restaurants using Hanok has increased in Ikseon-dong, and it has become popular not only with local younger generations but also with tourists. There is also a cafe that has become a location for the popular drama “Tokebi”.
Traditional streets are good places to take pictures of Korea while the atmosphere is good and picture perfect shops gather here.
In December, the city will be full of Christmas. Here too, Christmas goods such as Christmas trees and snowman figurines are displayed everywhere.
This place is also popular as a date spot, and there are many clothes stores, accessory stores, and perfume stores so you can enjoy shopping.
Also, if you visit after the evening, restaurants and cafes are lit up, so you can enjoy a different atmosphere from the daytime.
That is one of the attractions.
Access to Ikseong-dong is nearest to Subway Lines 3 and 5, Jongno 3ga Station. Of course, you can get off at Jongno 3ga Station on Subway Line 1, but it will take some time to get to the exit.
