Incheon, South Korea: Freedom/Jayu Park at Chinatown

There are a number of tourist attractions in Incheon area but since we arrived a little bit late in the afternoon, we didn't have enough time to go around and so I'm only posting Chinatown and Wolmi Theme Park from Incheon. 

Kaya natin 'to, sis. 

Once you're in Chinatown, you'll see a staircase leading to the mountain and if you continue going up then you'll reach the Freedom Park - a park honoring General McArthur. By the way, this Chinatown has been operating since 1883.

Statues of zodiac animals are lined along the walkway leading to more stairs to the park. This can be difficult for adults but it's always bearable and doable especially if you take your time and just enjoy the walk. 

Although there are a lot of people along the street and lined-up at the Chinese-Korean Restaurants, only a few people went up this place. Actually, at that time of year, there really isn't a lot of things to see here but I saw pictures of it during Spring and Autumn and those are definitely another story. 

You can see the ports and some parts of downtown Incheon from this pavilion but since it was a winter afternoon with a negative degree Celsius in temperature, going up here was a freezing experience that we only took photos and immediately went down. 

This is the walkway that looks breathtaking when cherry blossoms are in full bloom but on a winter day, then you'll just freeze yourself out there aside from seeing the skyline of Incheon. Good place nonetheless to burn all the calories from Jajjangmyeon and Tangsuyuk.

Always looking for a Chinatown wherever I go especially because I love the colorful arches/gates they have. Good thing we visited on a very cold weekday afternoon so there weren't a lot of people roaming around here but this Chinatown gets pretty packed on some days.

My zodiac.
