International Itaewon
Itaewon – Seoul’s “Global Village” – is where expats and foreigners come to play. This diverse, English-friendly neighborhood evolved around the neighboring U.S. military base, Yongsan Garrison. Itaewon-ro, the neighborhood’s main road, is a typical commercial street lined with big name stores and restaurants. But the charm of this neighborhood lies in its side streets – called “gil” in Korean. The alley behind the Hamilton Hotel is Itaewon’s unofficial pub row and destination for partiers. Noksapyeong-daero is chock full of antique stores selling vintage goods left behind by American and European soldiers. Seoul Central Mosque sits atop one of the neighborhood’s highest hills and is surrounded by Middle Eastern restaurants and international grocery stores. Don’t miss the inconspicuous side street Bogwang-ro for boutique shopping and cool cafes.
