Are you Ready for a Korea Town in Manila?

We have Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and Muslim Town. Are you ready for a Korea Town?

South Korean Ambassador to the Philippines Han Dong-man announced that there are already plans of building a town dedicated to all things Korean.

During The Virtual Presser hosted by Presidential Communications Operations Office Global Media Affairs, he said, “There are a lot of Korean restaurants and many Korean tourists visited there. With Manila City, we are envisioning to make that area, Malate area, as Korea Town.”

Han also said that he has already spoken to Manila mayor Isko Moreno for his support.

There’s no word when it will be built, but we sure are excited for the restaurants and shops that will open.

It will also welcome South Korean visitors and residents. According to Han, the Philippines welcomed 1.6 million Korean tourists in 2018 alone.
