Quick Breakfast at Yeouido Park

We wanted to inhale a little bit of fresh air so we decided to buy our breakfast and brought it to Yeouido Park, our first stop on our last day in Seoul.

It was easy to get there. We just took the subway and from Exit # 3 of Yeouido Subway Station (Seoul Subway Line 5), we just walked 5 minutes towards the National Assembly building.

Yeouido Park is a large recreational area located on Yeouido Island in the central part of Seoul. It was once originally covered with black asphalt, and people frequented the place for bicycling and roller-skating. The construction began in 1997, and opened officially in February 1999. It is now the place where many people in the city come to rest and enjoy strolling around, play sports, and cultural events.

One of the must-see areas is the Yunjunro Street, behind the National Assembly Building. This place is famous for having the loveliest cherry blossom street in Seoul. Cherry blossom trees, 30 to 40 years old, line up for about 6km, and is very popular in the spring.

Oh, how I wish I could go back in fall.

Yeouido Park is located at 120, Yeouigongwon-ro, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul.
