Comfortable Residential Area in Southern Seoul

Main sights: Amsa Prehistoric Site

Literally meaning “East of the river”, Gangdong district is located to the south-east of the Han River, next to the more famous Songpa district – home to Lotte World, Lotte Tower, and Olympic Park. In comparison, Gangdong is a quiet residential area with several parks, apartment blocks, and unexpected historical sites.

Enclosed by the Han River Park and Iljasan Mountain (Gildong Park), the district offers many locations for family picnics, biking, and hiking. It is also home to a quaint Kang Full Cartoon Street covered in manhwa-based graffiti and Amsa Prehistoric Site with signs of human habitation over 6000 years old.
