한강 (The Han River) has become one of the iconic symbols of Seoul, and as the 4th longest river in Korea, it runs through a good portion of the country. The river is quite broad, and in Seoul, you can visit 12 recreational parks along its shorelines, participate in exciting 수상 스포츠 (water sports), take a bike ride along the 74km-long 자전거 도로 (bike lane), kick back and relax on the the 한강 유람선 (Han River Cruise Ship), enjoy a 콘서트 (concert) by the water, or just hang out with friends and loved ones along the shore.
여름 날씨 (Summer weather) in Korea can be very hot and humid during the day, but at night, it cools off just enough to enjoy the night air. One of our favorite things to do in the summertime is to visit 한강 at sunset and hang out with 친구들 (friends). Not only can you take some AMAZING 사진 (pictures) of the river at this time, but you’re also not sweating your cojones off trying to experience an important portion of Korean 역사 (history).
Here are a couple more pictures of 한강 at dusk:
Thanks for checking out our first TTMIK blog post! We hope to be able to offer some insight on Korea while integrating a few vocabulary words for you to learn! Come on now, did you really think you were going to read a post from Talk To Me In Korean and NOT learn some new vocab?
There are more posts to come, but in the mean time, please grace us with some feedback!
