Before whizzing up the high-speed metro lines to Seoul, consider lingering in Incheon. The country's third-largest cityscape might be best known for its colossal airport, but there's more here than meets the eye. Soy noodles are tossed in woks by steaming stacks of dim sum in the immersive Chinatown area. Bumping Bupyeong district seethes with bazaars and flea markets. And you can get lost between the mystical Buddhist shrines of the Jeondeungsa Temple – the oldest in Korea. Adding to that, cheap flights to Incheon from USA can be real bargains, with as many as 20 nonstop daily flights alone connecting it with big hubs like LA and New York.
Enthralling hillside temple shrines and views of the Han River estuary await on quiet Ganghwado island.
Meditate and contemplate as you walk the grounds of the calming Jeondeungsa Temple. It's one of the oldest in the country!
Sizzling Seoul is a megacity that always impresses with its Joseon palaces and soaring skyscrapers.
