[Seoul Series] Day 4: Insadong, Ssamzie-gil, Jogyesa Temple

This is the Day 4 installment for my Seoul Series (which I started to document our visit to Seoul last March) and I’m going to break it down into several posts:

The first two posts will focus mainly about where we went in the Insadong area and it will be helpful if I show you the map of Insadong. I have highlighted some of the interesting spots that you might want to check out.
