SEOUL DIARIES 017: SSAMZIEGIL ARTS AND CULTURE 쌈지길

Indeed, Ssamziegil is the ‘Special Insa-dong within Insa-dong’.

This arts and cultural heaven is made of over 70 shops, including handicraft and souvenir stores, art galleries, restaurants and eateries. Following a spiral-like staircase, you’ll arrive at Haneulmadang at the top of Ssamziegil, where you get a really good sky-view!

This place has everything you will want to get from the streets of Insa-dong street. If you have only an hour to shop in the area, this is where you need to be!

I loved the hidden beauties along the walls, in the stores and between alleys at Ssamziegil. Everything here was beautified by people with mad artistic sense and skills.

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
