Incheon travel guide - Wikitravel (1241 words)
Incheon [1] (인천, 仁川), also Inchon, is in South Korea on the coast directly to the west of Seoul.
Incheon serves as a transportation hub by both air and sea, with a massive harbor and Korea's main international airport.
Incheon is a gritty industrial city, and while there are several pleasant things to do there, it shouldn't be considered a tourist destination of itself, particularly when Seoul is within easy reach.
Incheon - definition of Incheon in Encyclopedia (303 words)
Incheon Metropolitan City is a metropolitan city and major seaport on the west coast of South Korea, near Seoul.
Incheon was the site of a United States troop landing on September 15, 1950, in order to relieve pressure on the Pusan perimeter and to launch a United Nations drive northward.
Incheon is sometimes regarded as a part of greater metropolitan area of Seoul for their close distance, that they are linked by Seoul Metropolitan Subway.
