Itaewon, Seoul
(3.3/5 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.

  • On weekends its totally crowded and difficult to get a seat in the popular pubs. Not far from Gangnam district, little difficult to get transport late at night.

A little young small items of Myeong-dong, Seoul, and is really good, I thought I was one very much. Note because the market is small and confusing!

  • 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.
