Seoul Yeouido “Han River Park”

Along the Han River, which runs through Seoul, various parks have been created. Among them, Yeouido Hangang Park stands out as one of the most famous Han River parks.

Situated right by the riverside, Yeouido Hangang Park is adjacent to two of Seoul’s three major downtown areas, Hanyang Fortress and Yeouido. It attracts overwhelming numbers of visitors compared to other Han River parks due to its more convenient accessibility.

Getting to Yeouido Hangang Park is straightforward. Take Exit 3 at Yeouinaru Station on Subway Line 5, and you can enter Yeouido Hangang Park. Near the entrance of the park, various food stalls and vendors offer everything from simple snacks to renting out mats for relaxation.

The moment you enter the park, you’ll notice the diverse street vendors, indicating the proximity to the park.
