A Day in Incheon

We had a long weekend back in May for Buddha’s birthday. So with some friends we went straight down line 1 and went to the last stop headed west: Incheon.

Right across the street from the train station is Chinatown. This has got to be the closest Chinatown to China. Full of reds and golds you feel like you’re in a Chinatown.

Head up some stairs you’ll find yourself in 자유공원 Jayu (Freedom) Park. Here you can find The Korea-USA Centennial Monument which is a beautiful structure at the top of a hill.

 Also in a big rose garden you will find General Douglas MacArthur, in giant statue form. The statue of General Douglas MacArthur gazes out to harbor where he lead the amphibious landing at Incheon.

This statue was erected in 1957 to honor General MacArthur for what he did as a military leader in turning the course of the Korean War.  I think General MacArthur was pretty cool. He told the Philippines he would return and he did which was very good and exciting for all.
To finish the day we had cupcakes and got lost. It was a typical dainty adventure!!!
