About this experience 

Discover South Korea’s unique street food culture on this three-hour guided tour of Seoul’s finest foodie hotspots. The tour is in English and takes you on a meander through Insa-dong and Ikseon-dong before winding up in the gourmand’s paradise that is Gwangjang Market.

You’ll visit the old Insa-dong Cultural Street, where shops sell traditional Korean artworks and handicrafts, and atmospheric antique stores are crammed with cool furniture, pottery and other knick-knacks, some of which date back hundreds of years.

Admire the traditional Korean hanok houses along the alleys of neighboring Ikseon-dong, a hipster hotspot where cute cafés and bistros jockey for position with beautiful old-school teahouses, and stroll along the picturesque banks of Cheonggyecheon, a seven-mile stream with a storied history, that flows through downtown Seoul.

Then it’s on to the main event. Gwangjang is one of the biggest and oldest markets in South Korea and the street food here – as featured in the Netflix series Street Food: Asia – is second to none. With luck you’ll have worked up an appetite from all that walking, because you’re in for a treat in the shape of 2-3 dishes from authentic stalls. Opt for bindae-tteok (mung bean pancakes), tteok-bokki (spicy rice cakes) or bibimbap (rice and veg bowl). Or get adventurous with Korean delicacies such as chicken feet and sundae – not, as the name might suggest, a dessert, but a delicious combination of meat, rice, veg and blood stuffed into steamed pig or cow intestines. Wash it all down with a glass of Korean rice wine. Yum!
