Koreatown Travel Guide



Koreatown is centered between Western and Vermont Avenue along Olympic Boulevard, just south of Wilshire Boulevard. Home to more than 100,000 people, Koreatown is significantly larger than Little Tokyo and Chinatown combined. The district is lined with modern buildings, mini-malls, and some of the city’s better restaurants. It also has one of the livelier nightlife with a number of exclusive clubs and bars. While there aren’t any notable tourist attractions in this district, you should visit if you are in the mood for Korean BBQ or noodles.[1] Many of the restaurants are open 24 hours a day. [2]

The only cultural site in Koreatown is the Korean Cultural Center at 5505 Wilshire Boulevard, a museum showcasing Korean culture, life, and lifestyle including an art gallery display.[3]
