Eland Cruise at Han River

Han river park is a famous place in Seoul that so many people go there to chill. Do you know that you can take public cruise and private cruise on Han river? It’s so much fun. At this post, I will talk about one of my favorite activities here: it is taking cruise and feeding seagull on Han river. I suggest Eland cruise.

Before, we could feed seagull with snack but now we only can feed them with little fishes that are sold on the cruise.

How to Buy a Ticket

You can reserve ticket online or buy at place. There are so many websites that sell Eland cruise’s ticket and sometimes they have promotion programs so you should check it for discount. And one more important thing is that don’t forget bring your alien card or passport.

Before buying ticket (or taking the ticket that you have reserved online), we need to fill the boarding declaration then send it to the ticket seller and also show them our passports or alien cards.

I chose Story cruise (16,000 won) that is in evening. After buying the ticket, we can wait in front of the boarding terminal.

There are so many seagulls flying around so that you can easily feed them. But be careful with their droppings.

I took Story cruise at 5 PM. It’s an ideal time. The weather was not too hot, not too shiny that time, the sky was clear and we were able to enjoy fresh wind on river, feed seagulls and also take a lot of nice photos. We bought seagull’s food on the cruise. While feeding birds, you should be careful with your hands. Anyways, don’t be scared! Seagulls are quite intelligent, they won’t hurt you. If you still find it scary, you can just see other people feeding them.

There are so many programs for you to choose.
