- Insa-dong Batting Cage -

Nothing says Korean tradition like baseball, right? Why else would there be batting cages in Insa-dong, ground zero for Korean tradition. Regardless of whether the batting cages belong in Insa-dong or not, they are there. And they actually serve a good purpose: providing a distraction for the people who get dragged to Insa-dong against their wills. The batting cages are a great alternative to souvenir shopping for anyone trying to kill time.
