As a potential place to live, one should be sure of exactly which part of Yangju a house or apartment would be located in, as Yangju is quite large in area, and though it shares a border with Seoul it also stretches for quite a ways up north.
As the average Korean, Japanese, and Chinese restaurants are in abundance throughout Korea and are easy for foreigners to find, the following restaurants reflect a sampling of restaurants considered to be either popular or are western-friendly choices and other ethnic foods.
Yangju is 10-15 minutes north of Uijeongbu. Although Junae Station will be the nearest subway station, it is still under construction. Uijeongbu Bukbu Station is the nearest subway station and is a 10 minute bus ride away. Central Seoul is about a 40 minute subway ride from here.
