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.’

Comfortable and spacious private room located in our family's lovely 3-bedroom apartment. Our condo is a convenient and welcoming place for visitors to call home while enjoying all New York City has to offer. We speak conversational French and Spanish and a bit of Hebrew as well.
The apartment is one block away from the 2 and 5 express subways, which take you to Downtown Manhattan in 25 minutes and to some beautiful areas in Brooklyn in a mere 15 minutes. The Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens are only a few subway stops away and Prospect Park is within walking distance. Our immediate area has several grocery stores, health food and organic options, a drugstore, and many restaurants as well.
Our home’s features include: high-speed Internet with Wi-Fi, cable television, fully-equipped kitchen, bathtub/shower, large living and dining room, large washer and dryer, and hardwood floors throughout. Our home is strictly non-smoking but our courtyard is only one flight of stairs away as we are on the 2nd floor of a walk-up. You will be welcome to share the common spaces with our family (couple, small child, and loveable cat).
To yourself, you'll have a sunny room furnished with a very comfortable full-size futon (clean sheets/blankets/pillows provided) along with a cable tv, desk area, and closet space. Fresh towels also provided.

Great communication with Yoonche even prior to our stay. He replied to our questions promptly and thoroughly and even sent us a house manual and arranged our pickup and drop off at the airport. Yoonche was out of town during our stay at the apartment but we had no problems at all with the apartment as everything was as described on Wimdu and his manual.

The apartment is very well decorated and clean. I was worried that it'd be cold in the apartment but there was built in heated floorboards and so the whole place was lovely and toasty, :)

Very convenient location. Highly recommend and we'll definitely stay again if we visit Seoul.

The apartment is conveniently located, clean and nicely decorated. The directions provided by the host was clear and easy to understand. We enjoyed our stay there.

The place itself is safe, clean, and conveniently near the Itaewon subway station. Restaurants, fastfood chains, and convenience stores are easily accessible as well, though somewhat pricey. However, if you prefer to cook, the place comes with some cooking implements. A cozy place to stay for a small family who wants to stay together.
