Koreatown in Beijing

1355155200

There are more than 200,000 Koreans living in Beijing. The  areas in which Koreans are predominant include Wudaokou (Chinese: 五道口; pinyin: Wǔdàokǒu; Korean: 오도구 Odogu), and Wangjing. There are two Koreatowns in Beijing, the bigger Korean enclave is located in Wangjing in the Chaoyang district.

There are many Korean companies who have established their businesses in Wangjing. Primarily a family-oriented area, Wangjing also has an all-Korean international school(all grade levels) located in the Wangjing vicinity. Many of the Korean businesses in Wangjing cater towards families, businessmen, students and tourists with restaurants, bath houses/spas, bookstores, clubs/bars, golfing and Korean banks all in the area. (Chinese: 望京; pinyin: Wàngjīng, Korean: 망경 Manggyeong).

Although Wangjing is known as a Korean district, there is also a great number of Chinese-Koreans and North Koreans as well who live and coexist with South Korean nationals. It is often difficult for foreigners to distinguish between the North and South Koreans, as well as Chinese-Koreans from the local population. Lotte Mall is also located in Wangjing. The second Koreatown, Wudaokou, is located in the Haidian district which is where most of the city's universities are located. Because of the vibrant university scene in Wudaokou, there are many Korean college students who live and attend universities in this area. Although the Korean districts are on different ends of the city, Wangjing and Wudaokou are connected by subway line 13.
