School’s out and summer has come. But as a high school student, summer doesn’t always mean that it’s time to relax. During the break, everyone seems to be going to an academy of some sort, whether it be for SAT, math, English, or other subjects. In the midst of the summer academy hustle, everyone deserves a break from the stress and the heat. And what better way
to cool off than to hang out with your friends and family at Han River? Here are some of the best events and activities to enjoy at the Han River!

1.  Dokkaebi Night Market
Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market is an event organized that occurs from March to October, at Banpo Han River Park, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Cheonggyecheon Stream, and Yeouido Han RiverPark. Happening on Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm-11pm, visitors can enjoy foods from around the world, shop for unique handmade accessories, and watch various cultural performances.

2. Han River Ramen
Han River ramen may seem like any other type you could eat from a convenient store, but eating the ramen made right from the Han River machine with the spectacular view of the Han river truly has no parallel.

3. Bike Riding
As bicycles are rampant around Seoul, the city has appropriately placed several bike rental stations along the river. Prices are typically a reasonable 3,000 won an hour, and have either single or couple bicycles available for rental. There’s nothing quite like breathing in the spectacular landscape surrounding the Han River while cruising comfortably tucked in on a bike.

The Han River is a nice place to simply relax in the park, but it also offers various extreme sports that you could try when you want to try something a bit more exciting.
