ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods
Itaewon is a unique place in Seoul where one can meet people of diverse nationalities and cultures. There is a popular joke saying that international residents may not know Seoul, but they know Itaewon. Seoul even designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, and entertainment experiences.
Itaewon is in the middle of Yongsan-gu, which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is also close to Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.
In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in the Yongsan Garrison and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed in Yongsan. In preparation for international meetings, the Seoul Asian and Olympic Games, the government strengthened tourism infrastructures and revitalized commerce, prompting international tourists from other parts of the world (such as Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, etc.) to visit Itaewon.
Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, and stalls over 1.4 kilometers between Itaewon 1-dong and Hannam 2-dong in the east. Fashion shops specialize in various imported clothes, leather goods, fur goods, handbags, shoes, and antique furniture. Big and tall sizes unavailable in other areas are well-stocked, and experienced tailors offer customized clothes.
Another one of Itaewon’s many draws is its diverse food culture, which features cuisine from around world. Restaurants right behind Hamilton Hotel form a type of exhibition hall for international foods from Korea, New York, London, India, Thailand, China, Greece, Pakistan, Italy, France, Mexico, Australia, and more. Unique flavors, exotic interiors, and diverse nationalities help to make Itaewon befittingly ‘the global village in Seoul.’
The apartment is cozy but comfortable. While we were there the AC broke and Mark and Scarlet took care of the issue promptly and with very little disruption to our vacation :) The location is great and is very close to the subway and is close to food and nightlife.
Great deal on this small but efficient and nicely furnished unit, located close to itaewon station (5-7 minutes walking, including a few steps up a small hill)
It was my first time to stay in Itaewon. Was quite unique experience staying in Itaewon area. Many restaurants, bars and clubs . Mark's place was suitable for my short trip in Seoul.
The room is very comfortable with all the amenities to make you feel at home. It is a short walk from itaewon and itaewon station and there is a bus stop 2 minutes walk away. Would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Seoul
very nice apartment..great location. we would def recommend staying here!!!
The place was great. Clean and bright. Has everything you need and the location is terrific. Some might be sketched out by the walk from the subway, but don't be.
Great value for the money.
Very nice place and very nice owners! Recommend to everybody !
great stay great place. good location close to everything. hosts are wonderful. Highly recommend!
Pros: Clean, warm, good internet, close to good food.
Cons: Odd smell in the bathroom, walk from Itaewon station was somewhat sketchy at night.
Overall: a good stay for the price.
Apartment is minutes walk away from Itaewon subway station. Was a bit of hassle trying to lug the luggage from the bus stop (Airport limousine bus) to the apartment and there were no stairs although it is situated on the 2nd floor. Apartment is cosy and just right for 2 people. It was clean and tidy and everything works. Thanks for having us !
