When you live in South Korea you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to fun and interesting cities to visit, from Seoul, which is the capital to Daegu (where I live) to Busan or the beach cities as it's known. The list of places to see and things to do is literally endless.

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.
While living and teaching in Busan, South Korea, I've heard a fair amount about Nampo and the Jagalchi Seafood Market. Jagalchi is one of the most famous seafood markets in Korea. It is huge, and has both an inside, multi-leveled area and an outside open market. There are restaurants to be found everywhere there, but just next door is another area famous for food and a bit less expensive, Nampo.
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!
