Exploring Korea: Incheon's Soraepogu Fish Market

Posted on Wed, Aug 13, 2014 @ 09:17 AM

Checking out a fish market while you're in Korea is an absolute must -- the sights and smells alone make it an interesting experience. If you're a seafood eater, it'll also be an excellent opportunity to try a wide variety of seafood dishes as you browse through the stalls. Only a few stops away from my neighborhood in Incheon is the Soraepogu Fish Market, and I highly recommend stopping by next time you're in this area.

When Aclipse helped me get placed at a Chungdahm branch in Incheon in November 2011, I immediately started doing my research. I was pleased to see that it's the third largest city in Korea and it's next door to Seoul -- meaning popping into the city for weekend adventures would be a cinch. However, I quickly noticed that there's a serious lack of Incheon-coverage in the blog world. So, I present, in no particular order, my top 5 spots to check out in Incheon!
