Chinatown

     This is the only official Chinatown in South Korea. Chinatown is full of chinese restaurants and souvenir shops. Of course, many chinese people reside there, so chinese schools are there too. The area is located at the end of Metropolitan Line 1 that directly connects Incheon with Seoul. The main entrance to Chinatown is in front of the Incheon station. Especially, there are so many tourists during the weekend, so visitors should avoid staying in the place over the weekend if they do not want to confront any crowdedness.

There are also many seafood restaurants and cafes with a great ocean view. What is more, a small harbor that can bring visitors to several islands is still operatng.
