Wolmi Special Tourist Zone is a historic and cultural site where visitors can learn about Korea’s modern history and culture through a tour of Incheon. The area has plenty of modern architecture and cultural heritages embracing the history of the open port era. Incheon Port is conveniently located to facilitate the flow of products from other civilizations.
Included in the open port, Incheon Chinatown has various Chinese restaurants, a modern history museum, and exhibition hall where visitors can look into the past and current life of Chinese people living in Korea. Jayu Park Cultural Tourism Festival and Songwol-dong Donghwa Village Festival are held here every spring.
In addition, the Museum of Korea Emigration History, date courses, and Wolmi Cultural Street, offering up various sliced raw fish restaurants, and fine cafes are all available in the zone. Wolmi Observatory offers a view overlooking a port and downtown at once. The coastal pier approaching the port offers the active atmosphere of coming and going ships and the lively fish market. Enjoying various fish dishes and sea-fishing, or walking along the ocean square are recommended activities.
