Han River is a favorite playground for everyone of all ages in Seoul with so much to do. Lots of people gather here for picnics and exercise. On the riversides, you can see the sparkling sunshine during the day and the beautiful night view of Seoul after sunset. This time we will focus on sports people do in Han River parks.
Bike riding and jogging.
Bike or jog with a cool breeze along the wide river. Bicycle-only roads and running/walking roads are separated so people can use them safely. If you don’t have a bike in Korea, bike rental prices are reasonably cheap at average cost of 3000 won an hour.
Basketball courts and soccer fields are scattered all along the river. They are public facilities so anyone can use them for free. Visit some popular spots to play some pickup basketball or soccer with local citizens.
Windsurfing, skateboarding, inline skating, fishing, archery, swimming pools are also available in the Han River theme parks.
