Korean Manhattan and The 80s

Main sights: Yeouido, Times Square Mall, Yeongdeungpo Market, Mullae

A densely populated district of Yeongdeungpo is a rather off-the-beaten-path destination for foreign visitors. Most tourists prefer to end their acquaintance with the district with Yeouido Island, which has indeed a huge concentration of famous attraction for all tastes. However, Yeongdeungpo has a much more authentic feel than its “façade” part: narrow industrial streets, Chinese neighborhoods, traditional markets and glossy shopping malls are intertwined in a peculiar maze that is an incredibly fun mess to explore.  

Yeouido is a green island in central Seoul shaped by the wide waters of the Han River on one side and Saetgang stream on the other. From a sandy islet used for breeding horses and farming during Joseon times, it has grown to be a famous business district rivaling Gangnam with its skyscrapers, influence and affluence. Laws for the whole country are made in the National Assembly, new trends in entertainment are discussed in the major broadcasting companies’ headquarters and Korea’s economic future is decided in the top-floor offices of Yeouido.

Yeouido parks are incredibly popular for picnics and family outings – countless tents spring up as soon as the weather starts to warms up. Every season Yeouido has something new to offer: beautiful Cherry Blossom Festival attracts thousands of people with its fragrant alleys; summer opens ways for countless camping sites, water sports, and music performances; in early autumn the island hosts the spectacular Seoul International Fireworks. Throughout the year visitors can enjoy a romantic Han River cruise, explore the underground bunker and watch the sun set over the city from the observation deck of Building63.
