Incheon is inseparable from South Korea’s history of independence, but to most tourists, it is probably most powerfully associated instead with modern, cultured Korean living. Those coming here can look forward to a serving of South Korea at its best and brightest and will undoubtedly see the country’s prosperity embodied in its thriving entertainment venues and arts.
Most of Incheon is beautifully trim: this is clean, fresh place to be, and it will do frazzled nerves a lot of good to come here. The city has its own fast-living urban areas, but the true Incheon spirit tends to be a lively, bright and free one that will enamor many a tourist coming to the city for the first time. The best place to visit to get a sense of the city’s soul might be somewhere like Bupyeong, where the best restaurants, the latest names in fashion, and the most interestingly-populated cafes and lounges all tend to be found, giving you a wonderful sample of what Incheon culture is like. Sightseeing is popular here, as is people-watching, and the shopping and eating are comparable to those experienced in the best commercial districts in New York.
For something more focused on entertainment, you may want to head to Guwoi-Dong. Here you can find a lively Arts Centre as well as stadiums for soccer and America’s favorite sport, baseball. More restaurants and shops can be found here, along with malls.
For a taste of something more historic, you can head over to Independence Memorial Hall and Liberty Park instead, where the city commemorates its association with the US in statues and dedicated public memorials. And for something a little more natural, you can go over to Wolmido Harbor or any of the islands near the city, which are also tourist spots in their own right. Incheon definitely offers a lot, so what are you waiting for? Come on down and give it a try!
