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 Han 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.

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.’

I originally booked a 1 bedroom flat but the guest extended his stay so Judy transferred me to a 2 bedroom with no extra charge. The room is what a traveler would need if you're looking for a place with a bed to sleep since you'll spend most of the day out. There is a 7-10 minutes walk to reach nearest bus station but it gives you a chance to enjoy the neighborhood which is nice and quiet. There are stores and restaurants located right outside the building. Judy was very prompt in answering my questions. There is a manual and a website you can go to once you have booked a room that tells you how to get to the place and operate appliances. I found that very helpful as it was my first trip to Seoul. Overall, it was like a home away from home for me. I would book Peter and Judy's' place again!

Everything (including kitchen, bathroom, washing machine) you will be needed during your stay is in this house. Peter and Judy are really helpful, nice and they really care about guests. There are steep hills near the house (which was pretty tough for me with a large luggage) but the house is comfortable, cozy and it will make you feel like you're at home! It takes about 15-20mins by walk to Itaewon and 5 mins by walk to the bus station. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this house and I'm looking forward to staying here again next time for sure. In addition, there are lots of chicken places (almost every different franchisers) near the house! You will just love here.
