Itaewon, Seoul

(3.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Head to the international district of Itaewon, a cosmopolitan center known for its shopping, food, and partying. The local saying goes that expats may not know Seoul, but they sure know this place, and you'll certainly hear a good deal of English in the area, which American soldiers called home in the years directly following the Korean War. Imported clothes fill the stores, while eateries serve up plenty of international cuisine--everything from curries to pizza and burgers. Bars and clubs add to the lively atmosphere of the district, home to a burgeoning LGBT scene. Arrange your visit to Itaewon and discover more family-friendly attractions in Seoul using our Seoul trip generator.

  • Seoul is the capital of the neighboring country for the Japanese, would go in early than access to move from Kansai in Japan regional cities. It will probably not be the image instead of tough immigration at the airport because security is so bad. And shopping is not without, of course, unfortunately, spiteful or a rip-off when prone to the still speaking of Japan, even sometimes forget about staying abroad. Itaewon is a true cosmopolitan city prior to walking down the street in Japan, "there is copy-" of falls, a voice comes out of the open-air shopping around town is further increased the hustle. Have to remind myself of course there many shops with shopping and dining, but on the other hand as a traveller staying overseas too. That it always was conscious of the responsibility required in foreign countries. It reminded simply hands off on questionable products and not go to something fishy about that. But it said the city used compared to other cities of Seoul, personally I want to go?

  • Atendentes surpreendentemente amáveis, lugar seguro e região excelente. O hostel deixa um pouco a desejar, o banheiro é pequeno com apenas 1 chuveiro mas vale o preço.
