One of South Korea’s most-visited and famous cities, Incheon is home to nearly everything your family could want from a vacation. Between the city’s stunning temples and historic landmarks to its modern shopping centers and world-class amenities, including golf courses, spas and dining establishments, you’ll have your hands full in just choosing what to see and do.

 

Speaking of hands full, plan on bringing the kids? Clearly, this city is a wealth of activity, and your little ones will be anything but bored.

 

With obligatory and worthy visits to the Incheon Bridge, famous Yeonan Pier, Incheon Fish Market and local beaches already on your list, here are a few kid-friendly activities to add.

 

Songwol-Dong Fairy Tale Village

A brightly colored world in the center of Incheon’s busy city streets, families will know they’ve arrived at Songwol-dong Fairy Tale Village almost immediately. The whimsical village entrance resembles a cartoon version of Chinatown’s famous arches and, inside, kids of all ages find characters to pose with and brightly painted walls around every corner.

 

Incheon Chinatown

Speaking of Chinatown, Incheon is famous for this vibrant neighborhood. A bit smaller than the larger Chinatown sprawls in the United States, South Korea’s version is a great stop with the kids for food, fun and oddities.

 

Wolmi Theme Park

For some thrills and spills by the water, Wolmi Theme Park is a great stop for the little ones. You can get wet and wild running through water sprinklers, playing games in the arcade or getting a bird’s-eye view of the stunning city from the top of the Ferris wheel.

Incheon Grand Park

There’s nothing like a lush, sprawling landscape to let the kids run wild in during a city stay, and Incheon Grand Park has room to spare. Walk under the looming trees and take in the local flora and fauna with the kids. The natural beauty is spectacular and a well-deserved tranquil stop on your busy trip of city sights and bustling streets.

 

Incheon Football Stadium

Any sport fans in the family? In that case, Incheon Football Stadium is the new home of Incheon United and a great place to catch a game. Feel like a local and help the kids settle into a new culture with something they are already familiar with from home — sports! Read through the event calendar online and see if there will be a match during your stay.
