Yeouido Park, Seoul
Hello, I’m Sophia Jihye Hong; a professional English/Korean teacher, translator, interpreter,
now married to a Korean guy in South Korea!
I’ve been blogging in Korean since 2004,
I would love to share some fun experiences on traveling in South Korea. And now I’m in Kimchicrew! Oh it’s fantastic to share my experience in Korea.
You can read other posts or hire me through my WordPress blogs, DinoPhia.com (English) or Jewmoney.net (Korean).
Are Looking for a place to ride a bike in Seoul, South Korea?
How about Yeouido Park? Especially you don’t have a bike with you in Korea.
One of the reason you should visit Yeouido (Yeoui island) is to enjoy daylight in the park located center of Seoul!
It’s hard to find any park in Seoul, not the playground for kids. But this Yeouido Park is large enough to walk around, and many Korean people visit to find some rest in greens.
The reason why I went there was because I didn’t know how to ride a bike before… for 23 years of my age, and so my husband was the one-day teacher for me. I never thought of learning how to ride a bike that day really, but it wasn’t that hard as I expected.
Basically, you can just rent bicycle, in-line skate, kickboard, skateboard. Rental Fees are all the same,
1-person bicycle, inline skate, kickboard … : 3,000 won/hour
But for the 2-person bicycles: 6,000 won/hour
It took me about half an hour to finally enjoying my bike. I rode a bike and my hubby rented the in-line skate. With nice weather, it was good to see people spending their weekends with the family too.
If you are like me, never ridden a bike before, or just looking for some place to ride with other Korean people (many Korean guys play street basketball there too), try visiting Yeouido Park this week. It would be fun 🙂
