Following the Korean war of the mid 20th century Incheon has opened up the whole of South Korea to the outside world, and led to the economic development of the country, becoming firmly established as a center of modern industry, thus leading to the establishment of the Incheon Free Economic Zone in which many global businesses have invested.

The well known electronics company Samsung is typically such a company which is now an intrinsic part of the New Songdo City plan within the region, where also the development of expensive real estate projects are currently under development and due for completion in 2015.

Fully recognized by now as an international city Incheon plans for many international events including the 17th Asian Games scheduled for September 2014, as a follow on event to the highly successful Incheon Global Fair and Festival held in 2009.

Getting around Incheon

Incheon International Airport is deemed to be the world’s number one airport and is the main point of entrance into the country. The airport is located on the island of Yeongjong with direct connections by train to Gyeyang where you can transfer to the Incheon subway travel line.

Alternative modes of transport from the Incheon airport are by taking a Limousine bus which travels to many locations in Incheon for the price of $10 with a journey time of about 50 minutes, or by taking a taxi directly to the city costing $50 but a much faster travel time of 25 minutes.

For travel by boat then the Incheon Port International Ferry Teerminal has two main terminals located at Yeonan Budu providing connections to several cities in mainland China. The ferry boats resemble small cruise liners and carry many forms of entertainment such as Karaoke facilities, Video game consuls, or a DVD can be rented if you opt for a private cabin.

You can travel by the Metro line which offers regular links between Seoul and Incheon for the price of $3, though you can save on travel time by using one of the express trains. The bus services are excellent, providing facilities for intercity journeys with many regular buses routed for Incheon direct from Seoul.

The three best ways of getting around Incheon are undoubtedly via the subway, by bus, or by taxi. The Rapid Transport Corporation ensures that the subway passes through all of the points of interest, and the bus service with its 2,000 operators makes certain that visitors reach their selected destination on time. Taxis are a little more expensive to ride with a minimum fare of $2.

Things to do see in Incheon

Bupteong Station is a recommended spot to visit. It is the place where the Seoul and Incheon Subway lines interconnect and where there is a large underground shopping facility giving the opportunity to purchase a wide selection of goods, ranging from clothing items to modern electronic gadgets. By traveling back up to ground level there are a variety of restaurants and additional shops

Wolmido is another site of interest being the location of Green Beach the place were General MacArthur invaded the Korean mainland. There are several attractive boardwalks, amusement parks and restaurants which offer raw fish menus.

The Incheon Landing Memorial Hall is a small Museum which displays many types of weaponry and other artifacts dedicated to the famed Incheon landing.
