Description Located in Ongnyeon-dong, Yeonsu-gu in Incheon Metropolitan City, the Incheon Landing Operation Memorial Hall is a war memorial hall built to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the opening of Incheon Port in 1984. Its theme centers on the successful Incheon Landing Operation led by UN Commander in Chief General McArthur during the Korean War. Inside the building, there are photos of military armaments used by the South and North Korean military as well as photos showing what life was like back then. Outside, there is an 18 meter-long memorial tower and the national flags of the sixteen countries that participated in the Korean War. Right next to the building stands the Incheon Metropolitan City Museum where visitors can see at a glance the history of Incheon. Surrounded by the sea and mountains, the area now known as Wolmi Traditional Park was redeveloped by the city of Incheon and opened as a community space on September 10, 2001. The area had previously been used by the Ministry of National Defense to house military barracks for over 50 years. City officials recognized the land's history and well-preserved, natural environment and transformed Wolmi Traditional Park into an ecological and historical domain accessible to all. These carefully-planned sections that preserve the area's natural beauty have won the park a spot in the hearts of visitors everywhere. A glass observatory on top of Wolmi Mountain is open to the public free of charge and grants visitors a spectacular view of Incheon International Airport and Incheon Port.

Description Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is the largest of five remaining palaces of Joseon Dynasty, which served as the home of Kings of the Joseon dynasty, the Kings' households, as well as the government of Joseon. After being destroyed by fire during the Imjin War and abandoned for two centuries, all of the palace's 7,700 rooms were later restored in the 19th century. And yet again, much of the palace was systematically destroyed by Imperial Japan in the early 20th centyry. Since then, the walled palace complex is gradually being reconstructed to its original form. Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture. Seoul N Tower was the first tower-type tourism spot in Korea. The top of the tower is at almost 480m above sea level, including Namsan Mountain (243m) and the tower's own height (236.7m), making it one of the tallest towers in Asia. As of now, it has become one of the representative landmarks and multi-cultural venues in Seoul.
