Enjoy the scent of spring flowers on the decks of a cruise ship with the flower-themed ‘Blooming Cruise’
C & Hangang Land is operating a flower-themed cruise called the ‘Blooming Cruise’ from March 20 to June 25 that presents a unique way of greeting spring on the Hangang (River). The ‘Blooming Cruise’ decorates the decks of the Usell Beta, the biggest cruise ship on the Hangang, with sunflowers and forsythias. Also, royal azaleas and yellow rape flowers festoon the decks. Inside the Usell Beta, about 30 wild flowers are on display, and there is a photograph zone for capturing this special spring moment with your family members or loved ones.
The ‘Blooming Cruise’ departs from a pier in Yeouido and tours along the scenic Hangang taking in Jeoldusan Martyrs’ Shrine, Danginri power station, Bamseom (Islet) and Seonyudo Park as it goes. The Usell Beta then returns to the Yeouido pier from nearby Hangangdaegyo.
Ticket prices are set at 7,000 won (US$6.16) per child (aged between 3 and 13) and 14,000 won per adult. The approximately 70-minute route is being offered three times a day (13:30-14:40/15:30-16:40/16:40-17:50).

Short chance to meet black-tailed gulls on the Hangang, ‘Black-tailed Gull Watching Course’ on a water taxi
Pleasant Seoul, the operator of water taxis on the Hangang, is offering the ‘Black-tailed Gull Watching Course’ for 15 days until March 31. Because this bird-watching program is only available for a relatively short period, demand is expected to be high due to the highly specialized experience being offered.
When you feed anchovies to black-tailed gulls from a water taxi, they follow you. Thus, this tour offers visitors the chance to observe these birds from up close. The anchovies are on sale on the water taxi.
The ‘Black-tailed Gull Watching Course’ departs a pier by Yeouinaru Station and runs along Bamseom and Nodeulseom. Following this, it returns to Yeouinaru Station pier.
70,000 won is charged per ride, which includes seven to 10 adults. For more information or to make a reservation, please visit Pleasant Seoul’s Website at www.pleasantseoul.com or call 1588-3960.
