Han River Cruise – N Seoul Tower – Driving Riverside Road

One of the best ways to enjoy the surrounding scenery in Seoul is by going on a Han River Ferry Cruise. After pickup from your Seoul hotel, your evening begins with dinner at a popular local restaurant.

Once you've had your fill, you'll head to the Han River, where you'll board a ferry for your 1-hour river cruise. The cruise follows the river which flows through the city and offers spectacular views of the metropolis and its tourist spots such as Jeoldusan Park, the 63 City Building, N Seoul Tower, Jamsil's Multi-Sports Complex, and so much more.

Next, drive to Mt. Namsan, where the N Seoul Tower is perched. Go up to the observation deck, you'll have about an hour to take in the 360-degree night views of Seoul and the surrounding area from the 774-foot-high (236-meter) tower, which includes an outdoor terrace. The view is so stunning that many consider Seoul Tower the best tower in Asia.

At the end of your tour, you will drive along Han riverside and go back to the hotel.

Explore More About Han River:

The Han River and its surrounding area have played an important role in Korean history. The Three Kingdoms of Korea strove to take control of this land, where the river was used as a trade route to China (via the Yellow Sea). The river is no longer actively used for navigation because its estuary is located at the borders of the two Koreas, barred from entrance by any civilian.

The Han is formed by the confluence of the Namhan River (South Han River), which originates in Mount Daedeok, and the Bukhan River (North Han River), which originates on the slopes of Kumgang Mountain in North Korea. The River flows through Seoul and then merges with the Rimjin River shortly before it flows into the Yellow Sea.

The two major branches of the river, the Namhan River and the Bukhan River come together at Yangpyeong, Gyeonggi province, at which point it is referred to as the Han River. It then passes through Seoul and continues on to the Yellow Sea.

The Han River has played a central role in Korean history from the earliest times. The kingdom of Baekje was the first to lay claim to the Han River, recognizing its strategic significance as a primary waterway linking the central-western region of the peninsula with the Yellow Sea.

It was also recognized for the river's fertile alluvial banks, a relative rarity on the mountainous peninsula. Pungnaptoseong, located south of Seoul, is posited as an early capital of Baekje. It was not long before the region near the effluence of the Han River with the Yellow Sea, around present-day Seoul, became a bone of contention between Baekje and the rising kingdom of Goguryeo.
