“Reasonable shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Good for shopping and Chinese food & no vegetarian food. Shops and hotels open late after noon. Botanical park which is in top of hill is worth watching but steps............ You have to. Chinese culture and buildings and shops with Chinese jewellery , you can enjoy for half a day

“Nice place to check out if you have a couple hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Chinatown in Incheon began as a real Chinese settlement, but has since undergone some cosmetic changes courtesy of the city of Incheon, but it's still home to the children of the original immigrants and holds tight to its home flair. If you take the Incheon line (Seoul Subway Line 1) to the very end, arriving at Incheon station, you'll see Chinatown just as you exit the station. There is a huge Chinese archway, it's unmistakable. It was an interesting place to walk around, but be prepared to walk uphill. If you go up the main road be sure to get some bubble tea from a little cafe on the right side. The staff speaks English and are really friendly. Up the main road you'll come to a T crossing and off the the right are a bunch of little food stands selling baked goods. Try a moon pie! They're delicious little pies with a sweet bean filling. Of course you can do your shopping, but it's not much different than what you find elsewhere in Incheon. Take lots of pictures and head up to Jeyu Park behind Incheon!

“A nice place to visit”

Incheon's China Town has an interesting history. It is located next to the old port and at the last subway stop. There are lots of restaurants and shops to visit.

“Worth an afternoon visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

My recent Saturday afternoon trip to China Town in Incheon was a nice afternoon outing. There's not much to it really...plenty of souvenirs for sale on the street and restaurants. Lunch was nearly the same as Chinese delivery anywhere in Seoul or Incheon, perhaps a bit better and not too expensive (only tried the seafood soup and black sauce noodles with dumplings) but there were some pricey options on the menu. I also found a small shop that sold a few kinds of Chinese beer I'd never seen, so got one of each of the three. Also some popular snacks for sale on the street.

The area is less than a minutes walk from the subway, right across the street, and can be walked through in less than a half hour at a leisurely pace. Up the hill are a few more things of interest, a large, pointy memorial 'thing' for US/Korea relations and a statue of Gen. Douglas MacArthur because of his amphibious landing of forces in Incheon, a significant action during the Korean war (most likely saving the South from being conquered, but I'm not a fan of his, a lot of interesting history there).

Overall a nice afternoon if you're looking to get out of the house for something different.
