Location Description

 

Goyang is located north of Seoul and is easily accessed through subway line number 3, Gyeongui Line(Railroad), and KTX.  It is one of the largest cities in the Seoul Capital Area, with a population of just over 1 million. Goyang has been known as a commuter town (satellite city) for decades since one of its districts, Ilsan, was developed in order to alleviate housing shortages in Seoul. Ilsan has experienced phenomenal growth in the past 15 years, usually drawing in younger generations of upper-middle-class and upper-class Koreans.

 

Goyang is famous for the Korean International Exhibition Center, or KINTEX, the largest MICE venue in Korea where various exhibitions and conferences are held every year. Ilsan Lake Park is where the Goyang Lake Art Festival and Goyang International Flower Festival are held. The city is also home to the Korean Basketball League's Goyang Orions, which plays its home games at Goyang Gymnasium.
