Is summer hitting the Korean peninsula earlier than usual? As the average temperature goes up to 30 degrees Celsius on May 15, people in the country are alerted of the upcoming summer heat. If you find yourself in need of something to cool down the heat this summer, we suggest Han River’s water fountains, the urban oasis you can find in Seoul.

The city of Seoul officially turned on the nine water fountains in Han River parks. Banpo Bridge’s Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, which was listed on Guinness Book of Records for its 1140-meter-long length, and Yeouido Park’s Mulbit Square Water Fountain will be operated until October 28. Ttukseom Park’s Music and Sculpture Fountains, Yeouido Park’s Floating Fountain and Waterfall of Light, Nanji Park’s Mirror Fountain, Ichon Park’s Waterfall will be operated for the same period.
