Top 5 Destination in Incheon

Posted by Carrie Ang
Incheon, officially known as Incheon Metropolitan City, is the South Korea's 3rd largest metropolis after Seoul & Busan. Having the largest seaport on the west coast and the Country's largest airport, Incheon International Airport *U might see k-pop artist popping in & out if U're there..if U're lucky!hehe..*. Incheon is S.Korea's most important transport hub. Off the coast are numerous islands; some of which are still uninhabited. Many people who live in Incheon made the arduous trek to Seoul every day. Conversely, many Seoulites flock here on the weekends to enjoy fresh fish & visit the island.

Now lets check on the Top 5 places to visit in Incheon Island:
