Insadong, Hangang park


Starting from Tapgol Park, Seoul’s representative street, lined with shops offering a variety of Korean traditions including antiques, galleries, antique furniture, and folk crafts, antique shops, traditional tea houses, and representative Korean souvenir shops have been concentrated there since the 1950s. It’s a route where you can journey back in time while exploring Insadong, and simultaneously savor the unique tastes and styles of Korea.

Hangang Park Sebit Island

Evenings at Hangang Park offer a romantic atmosphere. Particularly enchanting is the Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, adorned with 200 lights that create a mesmerizing rainbow-colored display. The water dances to the music, captivating visitors’ eyes. Adjacent to the fountain, there is a sculptural hill providing a panoramic view, an outdoor stage, a 40,000-square-meter moonlight plaza shaped like the moon, a global plaza, and various sports facilities, offering a plethora of activities beyond fountain gazing.
The Hangang River Observation Deck, nestled within Jamsu Bridge, provides an excellent vantage point for soaking in the scenery.
