Incheon clocks in as Korea's third largest city with a population of close to 3 million. Its proximity to the world class Incheon International Airport makes the city a busy, international travel hub, which is reflected in Incheon's multitude of gastronomic offerings! Incheon is accessible from Seoul via subway and the city is a great starting point for exploration of nearby islands.
