Vital Visits in Itaewon

The Itaewon and Hongdae districts of Seoul are areas that most foreigners will come to see as a sort of 'holy city' during their time in South Korea. Most Korean cities or towns are not without Western conveniences such as a few fast food joints, one or two grossly overpriced designer clothes stores, and cinemas showing Western movies in English - but for a truly homesickness inducing day, a visit to the area really is necessary.


A walk through Itaewon's crowded streets is one of the rare occasions in Korea where you don't feel like a minority (the other being the Mud Festival). You're likely to see a lot more Westerners in the crowds here, and for a moment it's easy to forget that you're at the heart of Korea's largest city.

The first Taco Bell open to the Korean public officially opened in Itaewon earlier today. Although a rumor implied a 'soft opening' a few days earlier, July 11th was the scheduled date - naturally, off I went to enjoy a taste of America.
