Abstract
In concert with an ambitious national agenda that emphasizes free trade and
globalization, Incheon Metropoitan City is taking the first steps toward
reinventing itself to become a twenty-first century "Pentaport" with integrated
Seaport, Airport, Technoport, Business Port, and Leisure Port components. The
Incheon Pentaport transformation-projected to be complete by 2020-will entail
significant industrial, sociological, and institutional modification. Leisure Port
objectives can be achieved through responsible planning attuned to the ideal of
sustainable development and by empirical studies of Incheon tourism and leisure
dynamics. International benchmarks of leisure port success are found in Sydney,
Australia; Vancouver, Canada: and San Diego, USA, among seven other
cosmopolitan vessels and yacht in the Incheon region are encouraging. Incheon
Leisure Port development of tem amenity destinations will require equal and
multidisciplinary attention to questions of tourism design and tourism impacts.
Important issues will concern environmental quality, clean shipping practices, the
proper balance of modern and traditional amenities and attractions, trade-offs of
cultural honogenety and cultural diversity, and creative destination branding and
marketing, among others
