Incheon lies in the northwest of South Korea, with its suburbs bordering the outskirts of Seoul. The city has some excellent beaches such as Eurwangni Beach, a long strip of golden sand with a backdrop of mature pines.

    This is a city with lush green spaces, such as the 295-hectare Incheon Grand Park, overlooked by the towering peaks of Gwanmosan and Sangasan mountains. Get a flavour of authentic Incheon at the Sinpo International Market, and be sure to sample some dakgangjeong (crispy fried chicken in sweet, spicy sauce).
