#TravelwithKKDay: Cruisin’ at Han River

It was Friday afternoon when we scheduled our Eland Han River Cruise – save the best for last, I guess! It was freaking cold, I was freezing and at the same time, excited for the adventure we were about to experience at Han River. I booked our Eland Han River Story Cruise via KKDay, book here.

KKDay always my go-to e-commerce travel platform and trusted partner when it comes to experiencing authentic local tours and activities abroad aside from the hassle-free and affordable offers. And since it was my first time to travel in South Korea, I opted for unique activities that Seoul has to offer aside from it, being the land of K-Pop and K-Drama.

Of course, travels are not always glamour and convenience but if you trusted the right one – every mishap becomes a great experience. Our Han River Story Cruise was scheduled at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, however, due to miscalculated travel time, we arrived late and missed it. But after being apologetic, they let us board onto the next scheduled cruise. So guys, if you coming from Myeongdong, allot at least an hour because you should also be there 10 minutes before boarding time.

    The Han River or Hangang is a major river in South Korea and the fourth longest river on the Korean peninsula after the Amnok (Yalu), Tuman (Tumen), and Nakdong rivers. The river begins as two smaller rivers in the eastern mountains of the Korean peninsula, which then converge near Seoul, the capital of the country.

    Han River


    The Han River and its surrounding area have played an important role in Korean history. The Three Kingdoms of Korea strove to take control of this land, where the river was used as a trade route to China (via the Yellow Sea).[8] However, the river is no longer actively used for navigation, because its estuary is located at the borders of the two Koreas, barred for entrance by any civilian. Currently, the lower stretches of the Han River are lined with pedestrian walkways, bicycle paths, public parks and restaurants, particularly in Seoul. In a 2011 survey conducted by Seoul Development Institute of 800 residents and 103 urban planning and architectural experts, 51.3 percent of residents and 68.9 percent of experts voted the river the second most scenic location in the city, following Mount Namsan in the top spot.

    After we boarded at Eland Han River Cruise, we headed to the top level to have a stunning view of the city. It was airy and relaxing (also, for some reason – I was freezing!) as we were sailing in Han River which was lasted for 40 minutes. It was the coolest activity I’ve done on my #AutumnInKorea trip and maybe next time, I should try the one with fireworks and dinner buffet. More so, the sights along the waterway were marvelous. At the first floor, there was a live band that serenades the guests.
