Banpo Hangang Park is s very popular park in the evening. Banpo Bridge Fountain and the Floating Islands are spectacular sites to see at night. So what should you do at the park during daylight hours while you wait for nightfall? One option is to rent a bicycle from the rental shop and explore the cycling trails that line the Hangang River.
All of the bicycle rental stations found in the Hangang Parks offer essentially the same thing--same type of bikes, same rates, etc. As such, the shop here in Banpo Hangang Park is not much different than the shops found elsewhere along the Han River.
As mentioned above, visiting Banpo Park is typically much more rewarding in the evening. But if you get there early, you're going to have to fill your time doing something. You can't just stare off into the distance. That's crazy. Instead, rent a bicycle and explore the Han River. It's a great way to kill time while waiting for the light shows in the park.
Whether you are riding solo, with a date, or as a family, you will probably be able to find a bicycle suited for your needs here.
