Incheon [Conference Venue & Evening Excursion]

Incheon (Hangul: 인천; hanja: 仁川; Korean pronunciation: [intɕʰʌn]; formerly romanized as Inchon; literally “kind river”), officially the Incheon Metropolitan City, is a city located in northwestern South Korea, bordering Seoul and Gyeonggi to the east. The city was home to just 4,700 people when Jemulpo port was built in 1883. Today, 2.9 million people live in the city, making it Korea’s third most populous city after Seoul and Busan. While people have inhabited the area since the New Stone Age, the city’s growth was assured in modern times with the development of its port due to its natural advantages as a coastal city and its proximity to the South Korean capital. It is part of the Seoul Capital Area, along with Seoul itself and Gyeonggi Province, forming the world’s second largest metropolitan area by population.

Incheon has since led the economic development of Korea by opening its port to the outside world, ushering in the modernization of Korea as a center of industrialization. In 2003, the city was designated as Korea’s first free economic zone. Since then, large local companies and global enterprises have increasingly invested in the Incheon Free Economic Zone, including Samsung which chose Songdo International City as its new investment destination for its bio industry.

As an international city, Incheon has held numerous large scale international conferences, such as the Incheon Global Fair & Festival in 2009. The 17th Asian Games Incheon 2014 was also held in Incheon on September 19, 2014. Incheon has established itself as a major transportation hub in northeast Asia with the world-renowned Incheon International Airport and Incheon Port. The city is also home to the Green Climate Fund, an international organization addressing environmental issues.

Seoul (; Korean: [sʰʌ.ul] ( listen)) – officially the Seoul Special City – is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea, forming the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, the world’s second largest metropolitan area with over 25.6 million people.[5] It is home to over half of all South Koreans along with 678,102 international residents.[6] With a population of over 10 million, the megacity is the second largest city proper in the OECD.

Situated on the Han River, Seoul’s history stretches back more than two thousand years when it was founded in 18 BCE by Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. It continued as the capital of Korea under the Joseon Dynasty. The Seoul Capital Area contains five UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeok Palace, Hwaseong Fortress, Jongmyo Shrine, Namhansanseong and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty.[7] Seoul is surrounded by mountains, the tallest being Mt. Bukhan, the world’s most visited national park per square foot.[8] Modern landmarks include the iconic N Seoul Tower, the gold-clad 63 Building, the neofuturistic Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Lotte World, the world’s second largest indoor theme park,[9] Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, the world’s longest bridge fountain[10] and the Sevit Floating Islands. The birthplace of K-pop and the Korean Wave, Seoul received over 10 million international visitors in 2014,[11] making it the world’s 9th most visited city and 4th largest earner in tourism.[12]

Today, Seoul is considered a leading and rising global city, resulting from an economic boom called the Miracle on the Han River which transformed it to the world’s 4th largest metropolitan economy with a GDP of US$846 billion[13] in 2014 after Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles. In 2015, it was rated Asia’s most livable city with the second highest quality of life globally by Arcadis.[14][15] A world leading technology hub centered on Gangnam and Digital Media City,[16] the Seoul Capital Area boasts 15[17] Fortune Global 500 companies such as Samsung, the world’s largest technology company, as well as LG and Hyundai-Kia. In 2013, the city’s GDP per capita (PPP) of $39,448 was comparable to that of France and Finland. Ranked sixth in the Global Power City Index and seventh in the Global Financial Centres Index, the metropolis exerts a major influence in global affairs as one of the five leading hosts of global conferences.[18]

Seoul is the world’s most wired city[19] and ranked first in technology readiness by PwC’s Cities of Opportunity report.[20] Its public transportation infrastructure is the world’s densest[21] and ranked as the best in the Northern Hemisphere by Arcadis.[22] It is served by the KTX high-speed rail and the Seoul Subway, the world’s largest subway network,[23] providing 4G LTE, WiFi and DMB inside subway cars. Seoul is connected via AREX to Incheon International Airport, rated the world’s best airport nine years in a row (2005–2013) by Airports Council International.[24] Lotte World Tower, a 556m (1,824 ft) supertall skyscraper with 123 floors, is being built in Seoul to become the OECD’s tallest in 2015 with the world’s tallest observation deck and art gallery.[25][26] Its Lotte Cinema houses the world’s largest cinema screen.[27] Seoul’s COEX Mall is the world’s largest underground shopping mall.[28] Emporis ranked Seoul’s skyline having the world’s fourth highest visual impact among major cities.[29]

Seoul hosted the 1986 Asian Games, 1988 Summer Olympics, 2002 FIFA World Cup and the 2010 G-20 Seoul summit. A UNESCO City of Design, Seoul was named the 2010 World Design Capital.
