Tour Highlights

Hangang
Spanning more than 310 miles (500 km) at about 0.62 miles (1 km) wide, the Han River (Hangang) is one of the most important rivers in South Korea. A full-on tourism destination, a warm or even brisk day affords you the chance to explore the well-groomed pedestrian walkways and bicycle paths. Take the kids around as visitors and locals alike enjoy the soothing ambiance of the river while jogging beside it, fishing or just hanging out in one of its many cafes. If you are so inclined, you can even jet ski.

The Hangang Park also has playgrounds if you just want to sit and relax while the kids use up some energy. Unfortunately there are no real restaurants, but it is still a great place to picnic with the family or a loved one. One of the more popular things to do here is to take a boat cruise for a relaxing ride around, or for special occasions, boats can be booked for a night soiree.

There are several subway lines that cross the river, depending on where you are and where along the river you want to go. For a lovely night time stroll, get out at the Yeouinaru Subway and go directly to the Cascade shown on the directional map at the entrance of the park. Otherwise, if you are looking for a little exercise, you can rent bikes for the day for about $5 at a few easily accessible locations that also offer drop-off points.


There is a big temple right across from Samsung station, located in the center of town that draws everyone's attention. The temple, Bongeunsa, is representative of one of the temples in Seoul which are located downtown, and it also has thousands years of history.
Venerable Yeonhue, the national Master Buddhist monk of the Unified Shilla dynasty, founded the Bongeun Temple in the 10th year of King Wonseong’s reign(794).

The temple was called Bongeunsa since its reconstruction to build a mausoleum for Seongjong(the 9th king of the Joseon Dynasty). Many Seon masters, such as Seosan and Samyung were among those selected through the exam in Bongeunsa. Many parts were destroyed in the Manchu war of 1636 and the Korean War and later restored.

Bongeunsa also is rich in relics as much as its history. It is preserving the 321st treasure, the silver-lined bronze incense burner of the Korean Dynasty(which is in Dongguk University museum now), the Signboard written by Kim Jeonghee(the famous calligrapher of Joseon Dynasty) for the library of engravings, and many engravings of Buddhist scripture. Also the 23 meter size of the biggest statue of Maitreya in Korea will attract you. It is an honor to have such an historic temple in the heart of Seoul city.

    I spent romantic times by just crossing the Han River by a tour bus and a cruise. I think this is much better than the Seine.
