Banpo Hangang Park

Banpo Hangang Park is a park located on the southern side of the Han River. Most people visit this park to see the Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain show. The bridge is a well known tourist attraction and the longest fountain bridge in the world.

The bridge measures in at 1,140 meters (3,740 feet). At night, water falls 20 meters (65 feet) down from the bridge to the river. As the water falls, it is illuminated by LED lights creating a beautiful display.

One of the best features Banpo Hangang Park are the panoramic views of Seoul. The golden 63 Square (63 Building) can be seen in the distance to the west. To the north is Namsan Park and iconic N Seoul Tower.
