Three Appeals of Incheon: The Fastest Growing Tourist Attraction of Korea

Korea has gained great global attention as a tourist attraction in the midst of the recent online cultural trends enticing those who want to experience Korean culture. Especially since Korea has been successfully recovering from COVID-19 as well as implementing the nationwide “Living with Covid-19” policy with a high vaccination rate, the Incheon Tourism Organization highly anticipates that international tourists will be able to enjoy pleasant trips in no time.

People usually think of Seoul as the main tourist attraction of Korea, but Incheon may actually be the best city for tourists as it is situated by the sea among islands with various filming locations of Korean cultural content and where tourists can enjoy convenient trips with its smart tourist platform.

Incheon Tourism Organization recommends the following three trendy tourist spots to experience the true charms of Incheon’s vibrancy.

Since its grand opening in 1992, Wolmi Theme Park (Wolmi My Land) has served as the oldest amusement park in Wolmido with continued visits from tourists as the filming location of Squid Game where Deoksu meets his gang members. Tourists flocks to take a photo at Wolmi Theme Park, enjoying dalgona just like the characters from Squid Game, and watch the beautiful sunset that paints the entire place scarlet.
