- Different Feelings, Neighborhoods in Incheon
Embedded in Our HistoryIncheon China Town
Take the Line 1 toward Incheon, and get off at the last stop.
There is an express line which terminates at Dong-Incheon Station right before the last station.
Rather take an all-stop train and enjoy the scene of Incheon.
Unlike the subway in Seoul, it runs on the ground. Looking out the window, you can appreciate the slowness on your way to the Chinatown.
Upon the arrival at Incheon Station, walk along the train-line instead of going out immediately.
You can see the end of the track, which can make you thought your journey through life.
A big pai-loo the reads Chinatown stands right across the street.
There are three pai-loos in the Town.
The second is“Inhwamun” at the Korean-Chinese Cultural Center,
and the last,“Seonlinmum” at Jayu (Freedom) Park.
You are to look around the whole Town, if you see all pai-loos.
It can be a representing picture of your visit to Incheon China Town.
Looking around Chinese shops and restaurants at both sides takes you to a fork at top of the hill.It is the point where China town begins.
At the same time, visitors realize that they are on top of the hill, which tells Incheon is a port city.
Let’s hope this slowness last in our livelihoods.
Open Port Street, Solwoldong Donghwa Village, and Sinpo Market are near.
Visitors can feel different atmosphere and memories from China Town.
You can have the similar taste of Gonghwachun at Chinese restaurant Sinseung.
It is run by a granddaughter of the late overseas Chinese Woo Hee-gwang, the founder of Gonghwachun.
Visitors can also enjoy various types of Chinese dumplings. Either have-it or take-out is okay. Take-out can be a reminder of your trip.
The tour at the season of “Incheon-China Festival” will make it more interesting. The Festival features various events: True or false quiz about Korea and China; K-POP dance performance; jajangmyeon eating contest; experience China; and more. The Festival is held with the Korea-China Cultural Center as the center every June.
