Koreatown is just outside the downtown core, situated on Bloor Street West – one of Toronto’s main arteries. This fairly young neighbourhood is easily accessible on the city’s subway system and offers many ways to indulge in Korean culture.

Browse through high-end boutiques featuring vibrant Korean fashions. Feeling adventurous? Visit one of the acupuncture clinics or show off your talent at a karaoke lounge. If you’d rather let your taste buds do the exploring, dine at one of the many authentic restaurants, including sushi bars, barbecue, vegetarian and more. And don’t forget to pick up a box of delectable walnut cakes to go.

Each year Koreatown presents the Dano Festival, where visitors can witness spectacular martial arts demonstrations, exotic dancing and music.
