Sitting about 36km from Seoul, you will find a vibrant fish market at Yeonan that will leave you gob-smacked, a colourful Chinatown you won't want to leave and tourist-friendly bars where you will linger way after you should have gone home. A city that grew from about 4,700 people in 1883, today it's a heaving mass of humanity with almost 3 million people living in the city. Its startup scene is rapidly expanding, as its young entrepreneurs get over their risk-aversion attitude and traditional mindset associating success with working for an industry leader.
