Itaewon, Seoul
(3.2/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • Nice area to hangout specially if you are foreigner from M.E you can find halal food In the morning its nice and quite in compare with the nights I mean . Lots of drunk ppl 
  • 夜晚一棟棟五光十色異國餐廳,酒吧林立, 以前為美軍駐紮地,現在是充滿異國情調的地方, 小店販售異國風衣物用品, 鄰近為高級住宅區 
  • You can find in Seoul until now and has a different face. Because it had a US military base there are military stores. I think the Muslim mosques, halal shops in town, and is full of variety.

  • 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.
