02 Traditional tea houses, narrow alleyways and other remnants of old Seoul can still be found in the art district of Insadong, home to a bevy of crafts and art galleries.

03 Namsan Park will give you a postcard view for your Instagram feed. Hike, walk or bike to the top of its namesake mountain or take the funicular and cable car to get there in a jiffy.

04 The neighbourhood of Dongdaemun never sleeps: Sample street food at the night market while loading up on art supplies and second-hand books. During the day, in nearby Myeongdong, get your brand-name fix at the department stores Lotte and Shinsegae, whose rooftop gardens provide respite from the street-level hustle.
