Jayu Park bears a rich testimony to some of the most turbulent... More

If you visit Chinatown, you should visit this place, it is close to it. It is a part that remember the help of freedom between US+Korea, and also is a good walk, and the elderly people join to play 'Baduk'

You have a nice view from the top of the hill of Incheon City, port and surrounding areas. It is peaceful and not crowded, not advisable for thrill-seekers.

This park is located right next to the Chinatown, Incheon. U.S. General MacArthur's statue is among the highlights of the park. The Freedom Park overlook down on the shores of Yellow Sea ( or West Sea known to locals) where General MacArthur led the U.N. forces to landed on the shores of Incheon during the Korean war in 1950's. There... More

This park has a great view of Incheon harbor, and is nestled right above Chinatown. The monuments to General MacArthur and to the centenary of Korean-American relations make it a particularly touching place for American Visitors. Go at sunset as the best view is to the West. Then walk down the hill to the brown and white colored restaurant for... More

Depending on where you enter the park, it's more like a hiking trail than a park. If you love walking up mountainous terrain, then this site is for you. I feel like I walked about three miles to see something that was really sub-par.

The park is located on a hill in the vicinity of China Town. It's a bit of a walk with steep roads but well worth it if you like a view over the city and port. There is also some memorials of the landing of General McArthur and the treaty between former Korea and U.S in late 19th century. Otherwise... More
