Chinatown, Incheon
(3.1/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll through the knotted streets of Chinatown, retaining the atmosphere of the late 19th-century. Founded in 1884 after the opening of the port led to increased Chinese settlement here, the district still has the look and feel of a Chinese town, even though its heyday of a 10,000-strong population has long since passed. Shops selling Chinese folk art, trinkets, and produce line the little streets, while the restaurants serve distinctly Chinese dishes, including local favorite jajang-myeon--noodles with fried soybean paste. With our custom trip planner, Incheon attractions like Chinatown can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This is the are of Chinese people who came to Korea for work and commercial since very long time ago. You can see the multi culture that mixed together. Don't forget to taste "Jjajangmyeon" (Black Noo...  more »
  • It is a small Chinese town. Out the gate, Chinatown's entrance immediately from far up the Hill. Yokohama, like fine China store was not a feeling. Korean jajangmyeon purpose in coming.

  • One of my memorable visit was to China Town which is almost at a distance of 1hr 20min from Inchon airport via bus. It must say it is portraying the Chinese culture and traditions in its best form. You can enjoy everything there from Chinese food to Chinese decoration pieces. After passing through the shops having items ranging from sea-shells to jewelry and statues to embroidered pots and various other form of decoration pieces. Chinese restaurants with their traditional food. I have not visited any. If you are vegetarian or have some restriction regarding halal food I recommend to keep something with you otherwise you can get many place once you get out of the street. It has also a peaceful park as its extension. I can bet you will enjoy there. Calm seating place and above all the greenery. You can see a lot of pictures there besides a great entrance so don't forget to take a picture there :) In park you may come some memorial I am not sure but its probably some peace treaty. Few steps ahead you will find soldiers statues again it must be depicting some kind of memorial place :) To sum up here, I must say china town is a good place to roam around particularly if you are looking for some place to worth watching.
  • Very busy, bustling. Lots of restaurants
  • Awesome place with a lot of surprises. A fairytale theme surrounds the district which make it a great place for kids.
  • The Incheon Chinatown is very fake and touristy. All the buildings are just newly build and extremely red, you won't find any ancient or original content here. All the stores are either souvenir kiosks or heavily overpriced restaurants. The worst part is, you need 1.5h from Seoul to get here and will be fairly disappointed when you arrive...
  • Quite disappointing. Only spent an hour of so here because there really isn't much. Most of what I saw wasn't very authentic, just touristy junk and such. Even the food was disappointing.
