Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain & Some Sevit Floating Island

The power of social media and 2 Days 1 Night program succeed for making me adding Banpo Bridge as part of itinerary. Banpo bridge is well known as the fountain bridge across Hangang river. Based from instagram pics and Kim Joo Hyuk’s photoshoot during his task at 2D1N, the fountain look so beautiful. Banpo Bridge‘s fountain show was held around 15 mins. I could easily spot fountain shows at Jakarta, but seeing a fountain show at a bridge, it’s gonna be my first experience.

The fountain look so usual from a far but if you take a closer look, you could spot the fountain’s spectrum color. Not very far away from Banpo Bridge, there’s also located 4 floating buildings named Chavit, Galvit, Solvit dan Yevit.  These 4 buildings also known as Some Sevit Floating Island. Just like its name, these building float above Hangang river and when it came to night, these buildings had a colorful LED walls. As a part of autumn vibes, at the middle of Hangang river also spotted some LED flowers with the exact autumn color, red and yellow. If I’m not mistaken, the floating island also became a shooting place for Avengers movie few years ago.

Level of love:

♥♥ (Fountain show isn’t as great as I expected. After seeing Kim Joo Hyuk’s beautiful photoshoot of Banpo bridge’s fountain, I already set my bar very high. LOL. But if you like the city view at night and want to have a fresh air, you’ll love this scenery)
