Itaewon, Seoul

3.3
#5 of 15 in Neighborhoods in Seoul
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.
