Han River Excursion Ship
Looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of city life? Why not take a cruise down the 514-kilometer Han River and enjoy the beautiful scenery from the decks of a pleasure boat.
Tours of the waterway first began on Oct. 26, 1986 to lure both foreign and local tourists to the splendor and beauty of the Han River.
Now a total of seven cruises operated by C & Hangang Land, shuttle between the seven docks ? Yoido, Yanghwa, Sangam, Chamdubong, Chamsil, Seoul Forest, and Ttuksom ? along the river every one or two hours each day.
In an attempt to boost the popularity of the cruises, pleasure boats have started offering more services to the public, expanding beyond one-stop trips with theme-oriented tours such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Chumong Boat and Live Concert Boat.
The cruises are often used for weddings, birthday parties, music performances and other events. To get to Yoido dock, take Subway Line 5 and get off at Yoinaru Station, take exit No. 3 and walk 5 minutes.
For Chamsil dock, take Subway Line 2 and get off at Sinchon Station and take exit No. 7 and walk 15- 20 minutes.
For Yanghwa dock, take Subway Line 2, get off at Tangsan station and take exit No. 5 and walk 20 minutes.
