World’s Longest Fountain Bridge- Banpo Bridge (반포대교)

Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain (반포대교 달빛무지개분) is a very popular name in Seoul, Korea or even enthusiasts around the world who knows a little about kDrama! It is well deserved because, Banpo bridge is worlds longest bridge fountain. The rainbow fountain show with music for 15 mins attracts a loot of people beneath it. The fountain is programmed to play different shows during the day and night. During the day, the fountain shows a hundred different configurations meant to evoke waving willow branches and willow leaves. When the sun goes down, 200 lights illuminate the fountain as it sends up dancing, rainbow-colored jets of water in the air in synchronization with music.

Han River is heaven for seoul citizens apart from the freezing winter because it offers a lot to be honest. Hangang Park is composed of Gwangnaru, Jamsil, Ttukseom, Jamwon, Banpo, Ichon, Yeouido, Yanghwa, Mangwon, Seonyudo, Nanji, and Gangseojigu – a total of 12 districts. Each park has its unique characteristics that fit the district, and especially Yeouido, Jamsil, and Ttukseom districts are very popular because of the ferry cruise services on Hangang River. Banpo Hangang park is one of the major of them, and the main attraction is Banpo Bridge Fountain show, apart from a free open air movie theater, Amazing floating island ( Soon I will write about them 🙂 ) and of course delivery of chicken and pizza and beer right where you are sitting and enjoying your evening with your beloved ones.
