Gangnam and Hangang river, Seoul.

The Hangang river is one of the major rivers in South Korea. Passing through the centre of Soul city, it is a major attraction center for Seoulites. You can take a stroll, rent a cycle and enjoy the cool breeze beside the banks of the river. However ever if you want to enjoy a ride on a ferry and view the beautiful surroundings take the Han river cruise. The Han river cruise is available at three places Jamsil, Yeouido and Ttukseom. Jamsil and Yeouido are stations on the subway lines are a easy reach. However unlike other places of visit the Han river cruise is not just outside the exit of subway stations. You have to take a bus or taxi and reach the docks. We took the train to Yeouido and a taxi to Yeouido dock.

As the cruise does not take more than 3 hours including travel time, it is best to combine it with one more place. We included Gangnam in the plan. Gangnam is the financial centre of Seoul, you can see the high rise buildings the elite of the Seoulites zooming in high end luxury cars, Harley bikes. More about the cruise, the Han river cruise is one of the best ways to view the scenery across the banks of Han river, as it gets dark the lights from the high rise buildings give a outstanding view of the city. The duration of the cruise is an hour and time passes pretty soon. If your keen you could spot some of the well known landmarks such as the 63 building, Namsan Seoul tower. Overall a good place to spend an evening. For more information read Hangang Cruise
