Incheon Chinatown is a Chinese town on the east side of Incheon Station, which is about an hour west from Seoul.
Chinatown, which is rare in Korea, has been around for 130 years since its opening at the end of the Joseon Dynasty.
In recent years, gorgeous Chinese-style decorations have progressed, and it has become a tourist destination that attracts attention from Korean youth as an exotic city.
Chinese restaurants such as JjajangMyeon (Korean jar noodles), which originated in the area, and stores selling Chinese sweets and costumes are gathered in about 300 meters.
There is also a corner where you can wear Chinese clothes and take photos at the Korea Chinese Cultural Center.
All are free.
Because it is a popular tourist destination, there are many people on weekends and most restaurants are lined up at lunchtime, so we recommend avoiding lunchtime or going on weekdays.
Incheon Chinatown is about a 5-minute walk from Incheon Station where the subway line 1 and Suin line pass.
Incheon seems to be close to Incheon International Airport, which is familiar to tourists, but it takes more than an hour from Incheon Airport just because the place name is the same.
For example, if you go by subway from Myeongdong, you need to be shaken by the train for over an hour.
