Oranda-zaka (Holland Slope)
Oranda-zaka (Holland Slope) Review
This is a good place to wander on the way to Chinatown and Glover Garden. It's a cobblestone incline with restored wooden houses originally built by Dutch residents in the late 19th century. Many become shops and tearooms in summer. To get here, follow the street on the southeast side of the Confucian Shrine.
