Escaping the city, inside the city

Camping out on the banks of the Han River

By Chuljunsung |

Camping in the middle of the city—for Seoulites, it’s something that makes perfect sense. Camping out on the banks of the Han River has been a favorite pastime for both the old and young in the city as these green spots are perfect for enjoying the city’s nature at its finest. Whether it’s setting up a small sunshade for a relaxing Sunday picnic or renting out a pre-set up tent to stay the night with friends or family, Hangang provides lots of amenities you wouldn’t imagine you could rent out. The experience will be wholly different to what you might expect during camping out in the wilderness, but you’ll be surprised as to how fun and therefore addicting the activity may become.
