Good neighborhood for excellent Korean food, usually served in simple neighborhood restaurants. It's pretty much the center of Los Angeles, so full of traffic and very densely-populated. Not very pretty.

If you're looking for a night out, do not go to Koreatown. Unless you're Korean, you're unlikely to find a lively area at all here. Unfortunately I couldn't find "Club Bound" on Trip Advisor but this is a club that I started off with at...More

Not a really turistoc place but interesting to eat Korea food and buy Korean food products. Lots of Korean restaurants and stores. Is not a place to walk for tourism, nor it has particular interesting buildings.

Koreatown's where you go if you're craving a culinary adventure. This place is a savory smorgasbord. The area itself isn't particularly pretty - a prime example of L.A. strip-mall style - but if you can ignore the architecturally-challenged surroundings, you're in for a treat. Those...More

Visited the Koreatown Plaza mall on a trip last week. Its a mall straight out of the 80s. For those wanting to see what a mall looks like in Korea, this isn't it -sorry. Stores were mostly empty and there was very little foot traffic...More

People here are generally very hospitable. As is the food, so warm and inviting to your mouth. But be careful, as the heat of their Tofu and Bulgogi plates won't save you long from the blistering cold that thrives outside. Thank Goodness my Girlfriend was...More

We're not Korean but felt safe walking around, even at night, during our whole stay. We stayed at the Line hotel and walked around the surrounding area.
