This is not necessarily marketed as a 'tourist attraction', but we were recommended to visit Some Sevit (세빛섬) to take advantage of the lovely ambiance at night. It is not necessarily the easiest place to get to, but it is about a 15 minute walk from Express Bus Terminal station. It was a nice area with bike lanes and open... More

Very nice park. Lots people sit on the grass, have picnic or just enjoy the view. There is also a children's playground and bike rental.

It was cold outside with wind, but I felt that it would be good for having some time with friends or family in that area. Sebitseom("seom" means island. In this case, islet) is a connected artificial islet that consisted with three structures. Gabit, Solbit and Chaebit. "Se" of "Sebitseom", I guess this would be their intention, means "three(3)" in Korean.... More

It was nice to have a dinner and enjoy Han river. But I think the place doesn't have its own colour. Another typical Korean dining and shopping areas... I think Seoul city official needs to be more strategic to plan this place.

Having seen the movie "Avengers: Age of Ultron", I found the architecture of these artificial islands (or islets) in the Han River in Seoul, which were featured in the film, to be striking and futuristic, so I was determined to see them for myself when visiting Seoul. They are a little difficult to get to now (March 2016) via public... More

Despite this 'floating island' is located to exactly where I was born, I'm not sure it's really worth visiting it.

We toured Sevit immediately upon arrival from Incheon International Airport. It's a great way to see some cultural scenery and fascinating architecture. The retail had some decent choices. Highly recommend walking about and strolling down the bike path.

We arrived in Incheon at night, from Incheon to Seoul is an interesting ride. We passed by many capturing beauties along the way, and there I saw the the 3 luminous buildings in Floating Island, that time I knew we should visit the place. Floating Island is a romantic place at night. There are restaurants, cafes/tea shop and clean toilets.... More
