People of different nationality coming together, to live, to make a living or just visiting. More international restaurant here then Korean. Be prepared to walking along sloppy roads. Image in the day and night is huge.

Party area of Seoul. Long road of bars and restaurants. Busy. Lively. Bright lights. A place for locals, tourists and off duty US soldiers to have some food and drink. Good place to go for some night life

Itaewon is good for clubbing,nightlife and shopping. Foreign mart is there where you can buy grocery items which you will not find anywhere else. Also can do shopping roadside shops.

I have visited Itaewon numerous times with my family. It is a family friendly area as long as your stay close to the main road. I recommend to any and all expats to come to Itaewon.
