Hangang Nightview Tour starts on Saturday Updated: 2018-08-10 18:00:19 KST

At around 8 p.m., a tour guide introduces a group of sightseers to Seorae-seom Island, a man-made island located on the southern part of Seoul's Hangang River.
Through individual earpieces, the guide narrates the history of the island and river.

The tour guide then takes the group to another man-made island called Sebit-seom Island, more decorated with colorful lights than Seorae-seom Island.
Sebit means three colors, and the island is really a group of three smaller islands that resemble a flower when viewed from above.
The stunning views mesmerize sightseers.

"I hope people enjoy the night view of Hangang River and experience the beauty of light."

At last, the guide ushers the group to their final destination, the moonlight rainbow fountain on the Banpo Bridge that straddles the Hangang River
The fountain has 380 nozzles spraying rainbow-illuminated jets of water high into the air.
Around 200 lights shining on the fountain add to the allure of the scenery.

"The tour was really exciting. I will definitely come again, and I'll highly recommend it to others."

"The moonlight rainbow fountain is one of the highlights of the Hangang River night tour. People flock here to beat the heat and enjoy the summer nights."

The tour will run every Saturday night until October.
So why not add a river tour to your evening stroll along the Hangang River?
