Sinpo Dong Area
SINPO CULTURAL QUARTER (CULTURAL STREET)
Sinpo-dong in which numerous stores including luxury brands, casuals, and bonded specialized stores for fashion, shoes, accessories and bags are located along the side of road. Sinpo-dong is to Incheon what Myeongdong is for Seoul. Because there are many fascinating cafeterias and restaurants attracting young people, it is a place of fashion leaders in Incheon where the newest fashion trend and the vigor of youth can be felt.
This neighborhood, created at the turn of the century, quickly became a sort of marketplace for "exotic" products such as needles, cosmetics, shoes and western apparel. Sinpo is now a fashion district drawing Incheon's trendiest people to its streets and shops. The decentralization of urban commercial quarters brought about during recent decades drained some of Sinpo-dong's traffic. But with its streets lined with glitzy boutiques, cafes and restaurants frequented by the younger generation, the area remains a very fashionable scene. Recently, the neighborhood has also become a favorite of foreigners entering the country via Incheon Port. A new wave of shops catering to them has given the area a cosmopolitan atmosphere, turning it into what some would call a "fusion-style tourist attraction."
