Seokchon Lake once served as the site of Songpa Ferry, having been part of the mainstream of the Hangang River. As the site was transformed into Songpanaru Park, the lake transformed into an urban green space encircled by trees, trails and benches. Now, it has become a place for local residents to unwind and relax. Walking along the trail around Seokchon Lake, you can see Lotte World and Lotte World Tower nearby.
Lotte World comprises the indoor Lotte World Adventure and the outdoor Magic Island. It is a gigantic place that includes a folk museum, ice rink, department store, supermarket, and hotel. Extremely popular among children and couples, visitors can stop by Seokchon Lake for rest and Lotte World for fun.
Lotte World Tower can not only be seen from Seokchon Lake, but the skyscraper can be seen even from Gyeonggi Province. As the tallest skyscraper in Korea and the fifth tallest in the world and Asia, this monumental brush-shaped skyscraper is the first building in Korea with more than 100 floors, comprising not just commercial space, but also office space and even residential space.
Seokchon Lake is a must-visit attraction not only for tourists to enjoy, but also for residents to rest! Take some time out of your busy schedule to visit Seokchon Lake for a quick urban getaway!
