Incheon is South Korea's third-largest metropolis and the largest seaport on the west coast. It's also a port city that offers memorable experiences such as watching the sun set over the ocean from a bench, wiggling your toes in fine, silver sand, sitting on the rocks along the shore sport fishing for the day and being dazzled by red and blue silk-covered lanterns lighting up the trees at night. Explore Incheon, the home of active and passionate people, the place where the Korea-U.S. Treaty was signed and a city exuding an energetic and determined spirit.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
