Written by Marie for Shuttle

Picnic weather in Seoul has finally arrived! Luckily the city is filled with the ultimate picnic spots in the many forests, parks and along the river. You might have noticed, but when it comes to picnicking, Koreans have it down pat. Read on to find out where to picnic, what to bring and what food to order!

Where To Picnic In Seoul & What To Bring

There are all types of picnicking spots in Seoul, along the river, on one of the mountains and in one of the many of the city parks. Here are some of our favourite spots:

  • Banpo Hangang Park
  • Seoul Forest
  • Yeouido Hangang Park
  • Olympic Park
  • Namsam Park

When spending an afternoon relaxing with friends, make sure to come prepared. The basics to bring are a picnic blanket, ball or frisbee and a tent to block out the sun. It is very common to come with packed lunches and snacks or to just order the delivery food straight to the park.
