Global Seoul Mate's I Like Seoul mission!

I like many things about Seoul such as its parks, mountains, palaces, restaurants, transportation system Etc. Among all of previously mentioned places, I like Han River Parks (한강공원) the most!!

Picnic at one of many parks is best way to spend your weekend during spring, summers or autumn. Many seoulites fascinate Hagang Parks for physical activities such as cycling and running. You will often find people practicing for marathons or cycling events or just doing it as hobby!

Since I moved to Korea, I was searching for nice tracks and parks. Han river parks were simply best! They provide breathtaking views ,therefore I choose it be my favorite thing about Seoul!!

I LIKE Han River Parks in Seoul because I can run or ride bicycle there! Moreover, I can enjoy picnic with friends over there :)

Han River Parks = Nature + Picnic + Walk ,+ Peace + Serenity + Running + Cycling + AdayOut!


I borrowed some information from visitKorea website about best cycling tracks. 

" The Nanji Bike Park - Banpo Hangang Park course remains one of the best bicycle courses around Hangang River. In addition to enjoying the beautiful scenery of nature, bicycle riders can experience all of the special features along the course, including unique bicycle-riding in Nanji Park, the Friendly Trail in Mangwon Park, the view of the twilight and Bamseom Island from Mapo Bridge, the open field and fountain of Yeouido Park, and the cafés on Dongjak Bridge. "

You can rent bike for 1/2 hours at 3000 won per hour rate.
