It was nice to have a dinner and enjoy Han river. But I think the place doesn't have its own colour. Another typical Korean dining and shopping areas... I think Seoul city official needs to be more strategic to plan this place.

Having seen the movie "Avengers: Age of Ultron", I found the architecture of these artificial islands (or islets) in the Han River in Seoul, which were featured in the film, to be striking and futuristic, so I was determined to see them for myself when visiting Seoul. They are a little difficult to get to now (March 2016) via public... More

Despite this 'floating island' is located to exactly where I was born, I'm not sure it's really worth visiting it.

We toured Sevit immediately upon arrival from Incheon International Airport. It's a great way to see some cultural scenery and fascinating architecture. The retail had some decent choices. Highly recommend walking about and strolling down the bike path.

We arrived in Incheon at night, from Incheon to Seoul is an interesting ride. We passed by many capturing beauties along the way, and there I saw the the 3 luminous buildings in Floating Island, that time I knew we should visit the place. Floating Island is a romantic place at night. There are restaurants, cafes/tea shop and clean toilets.... More

Went to see the singing bridge with fountains and lights, but I have checked this as well. Had an interesting (and overpriced) tea at CNN café and then checked all the moving lights from the outside.

Had the chance to visit place during a City Tour Bus ride. While I didn't exactly love it, it was also great to see different sights apart from the usual Tourist Attraction.

Good place for a night visit, there is a coffee shop (CNN café). Worth if combined with the light show that is held at the bridge by the island (just in spring and summer, starting from April)

Looked pretty at night with all the lights. There was a souvenir shop inside and we wanted to buy a specific item that was not for sale anywhere else but there was no staff. So left without the souvenir that we had been looking for for 2 weeks.
