Seoul is a very enjoybale city with diffrent sceneries throughout the four seasons, the day time , and also at night. What makes seoul nightscape special, is the endless night sceneries, found in every area. They are many places that you can experience at night especially when the weather becomes more hot and humid. If night sightseing is what you enjoy, this article is for you. Through this article, I will take on an adeventure in two areas to get an overview of the Seoul nightscape. Let’s visit the Naksan Park and the Jamwon park. Are you ready ?
Naksan Park and the Seoul City Wall
The Naksan Park, is located in the old downtown of the city, along the Seoul city wall. This park is a unique hot spot to enjoy the Seoul nightscape. You can reach the Naksan park either from the Dongdeumun area or the Daehakro area. Both ways offer diffrent, but very unique and enjoyable experiences.
The Naksan Park is a famous filming set of many korean dramas. For this reason, it has become a hot spot for dating among couples, and an attractive touristic area for visitors. Also, it is possible to reach the famous Ihwa mural village by walking down the wall. The village is a very instagrammable area with cute cafes, and art murals. Another great acitivity , will be taking night photography of the city. I especially like this place because I can see the whole view of Seoul. You can see a mixture of skyscrappers, the city gate, and the busy city streets. It is the perfect spot to capture the dynamics of Seoul, and reproduce the nightscape with your lense.
Jamwon Hangang Park and Seoul Wave
The Jamwon Hangang Park is another great place in Seoul to enjoy the night view. Located only few minutes walks from Sinsa , this park is an open area for outdoor activities. Many people visit the Jamwon Park daily for picnics, biking, walking and other leisure activities. For me this park is most enjoyable at night. I usually go there after enjoying a delecious meal in Sinsa, I take a walk to digest and watch the lights of the city. What makes this park more special is the floating coffee shops, especially the startbucks flagship. It is a unique structure, floating on the han river with a glass wall facade. This coffee shop is excellent for a panaromic view of the city, but also perfect to relax after a long day of work.
