1. Be mesmerised by the sight of the illuminated night fountain at Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain

The famous Moonlight Rainbow Fountain spans the length of the Banpo Bridge, creating a stunning visual display with its water jets and colourful lights. Visitors can enjoy the fountain show from nearby parks or take a boat ride on the Han River to get a closer look. The Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain operates every day from April to October.

2. Escape reality at Hwadam Botanic Garden Gwangju, Gyeonggi-do, where serenity meets stunning landscapes

Located in Gwangju, Gyeonggi-do, the garden is home to a wide variety of plant species, including rare and exotic plants. Visitors can stroll through the different themed gardens, such as the rose garden, cactus garden, and tropical plants garden. The garden also features a greenhouse, a pond with water lilies, and walking trails, making it a perfect destination for nature lovers. This eco-friendly arboretum, located within Konjiam Resort, is just a mere 40-minute drive away from Seoul.

3. Experience a unique perspective of Pohang's cityscape, bay, and beach from the Space Walk, spanning 333 metres in length

Nestled in the scenic hills of Hwanho Park in Pohang, this surreal art installation promises a mesmerising adventure, spanning an impressive 333 metres in length and 25 metres in height. You'll get to ascend to new heights and savour the panoramic views of Pohang's cityscape, Youngil Bay, and the serene expanse of Youngildae Beach.

With its elevated position and winding tracks, the Space Walk structure offers a thrilling bird's-eye view.
