Living in Ansan

Just south of Seoul and linked to the South Korean capital by Line 4 of its subway, Ansan is a medium sized city on the edge of the Yellow Sea. The large and well-known Daebu Island is not far from the city. Human settlement on the site goes right back to the Stone Age, with various prehistoric dolmens and middens for expats living in Ansan to explore, but the modern city's history is far more recent. It was only in 1986 that a number of towns were incorporated to become Ansan (the name borrowed from a nearby fishing village). It has since grown rapidly to a city home to more than 700,000 people, various universities and a thriving expatriate population. Ansan's efforts to invite global minds have led to it being declared a multicultural zone and a number of international events are held annually, welcoming expats and the international community to the blossoming city. With a growing economy, futuristic infrastructure planned and a thriving cultural life, it's no surprise that it has already been dubbed 'The City of Abundant Hope'.
