Incheon’s Chinatown came into being with the opening of Incheon Port in 1883 and Incheon’s designation as an extraterritoriality of the Ching Dynasty in the following year. In the past, the area held many stores trading goods imported from China, but currently most Chinese businesses in the area are restaurants. Today, the residents of Chinatown are mostly 2nd or 3rd generation Chinese, descendents of the early Chinese settlers. While the traditional culture of the first generation has been fully preserved, the area still harbors many of the flavors of China.
