Top pick 2 – Namsan Tower (N Seoul Tower) 남산 타워

Namsan Tower is undoubtedly an important landmark. There is no better place to see the panoramic view of Seoul than Namsan. You can see not only the shining Han River reflected in the sunlight, but also the forest of buildings and dense residential areas in Seoul.

You can see both Gangnam and Gangbuk.
Since Namsan Tower is located on top of a mountain, it’s a good idea to make this spot a picnic destination for a day trip.

Top pick 3 – Hangang (Han River) 한강

When talking about Seoul, you cannot leave out the Han River.
The river that runs through Seoul is 41.5 kilometers long and ranges in width from 900 to 1,200 meters. Currently, there are 22 bridges across the Han River in Seoul.

There is a park for Seoul citizens along the Han River, so it is a great resting place. You can enjoy biking or running along the Han River and have a picnic while enjoying the river view. You can also take a cruise ship.
