Dating from the 14th century, Itaewon was the first gateway to Seoul for travelers coming from the Yeongnam area of Korea. Being adjacent to the Han River, it formed a major trading area. That tradition continues today as Itaewon attracts thousands of foreign shoppers. The Itaewon shopping area covers a 1.4 km length, stretching from the U.S. 8th Army Base eastwards to Hannam-dong and contains over 1,000 different stores. The area has a vibrant night life scene with many bars and nightclubs. Many street vendors selling shirts, jackets, and caps also stay up late to cater to nocturnal shoppers. Most vendors speak some English and Japanese, and most will take Won, Dollars, or Yen for transactions. Most larger shops will take most credit cards as well.

Itaewon also has alot of stores catering to the western styles of dress, as well as carrying Hard to find sizes. Urban apparel can be found here as well.

Itaewon, as the city of all nations, has the most exotic restaurants of each country. You can easily find the traditional restaurants of Germany, Italy, India, Pakistan, Switzerland, and Thailand which are hard to find in any other places. Moreover, the Korean, Chinese and Japanese restaurants here in Itaewon pursue the most traditional tastes.
