Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is part of the World Cup Park, a huge green area at the western part of Seoul. The site of a former landfill, Haneul Park is now a popular weekend hangout spot. A short stroller ride to the summit offers a pleasant panorama of the city. The plantation of reed adds a sense of wilderness to the once barren land. A great picnic venue in summer.

The park offers 360° view of Seoul and the Han. Worth noting is how the park came about. From being a landfill to becoming an attraction tells us that nothing is impossible with political will and determination.

If you do not wish to attempt 291 stairs or long hilly walk up to the top of the park, you can take the golf-cart shuttle service departing from the park entrance at a small charge (1 way 2,000 won / return 3,000 won).

Of course I am here in winter so grass in brown and bot much color. However, it also meant that it was deserted and felt like I had the whole park to myself. I started from the World Cup Stadium and walked up the stairs. There is the option of taking a car, which I did on the way down as it was after sunset and cold AF. Paid KW 2,000 for single trip

As you go up, Seoul is revealed in bits, breathtaking really. As someone who comes from a place where we still have sweeping vistas of untainted Savannah, it was a bot sad to see the cramped up high rises and kinda feel the suffocation from so much concrete.

I sat and watched the sunset over Han River and as sunsets go, definitely one of my best.

If u want Seoul pictures different from all your friends', then this is the place to go! your pictures will come out looking Instagrammable too!

Take to World Cup Stadium Station and then walk towards Haneul Park. u have the option to take the buggy shuttle bus up onstead of climbing the steep slope up. The bus is highly recommended and cost only KRW1000 for a round trip.

The field is huge so no worries about crowd. Each one has his own little patch of muhly grass to disappear into and take pictures!

Haneul Park is the highest park and one of the five parks situated in World Cup Park. The park can be reached by climbing the wooden stairway or riding the parks electric tram. It was once a landfill that has been turned inti an ecological park. Once you reach the top, you can enjoy the fantastic view of Seoul and the Han river. The view is breathtaking and goodspot for taking pictures and relaxing.

I went to Haneul Park in Mid Nov and flowers have withered. All that were left are field of brown Lalang. Definitely, was hoping for more colours but can't be help that I went at the wrong timing. Personally felt that the park will be enchanted if we went at the right time with flowers blooming.

You will be required to climb stairs up to the park. After the short climb, the gradient is gentle. It took us around 45 minutes to finish exploring the park, taking photographs. The park is a 10 minutes walk from world cup stadium, making it accessible by public transport.

The weather was cooling then at around 10-14 degree Celsius making the walk enjoyable. It was a worth a trip there as you can visit Mapo-Gu or Hongdae easily after. It will be added bonus if you plan the trip well and see the seasonal flowers in timely manner.

Overall, a beautiful place to go to if you have extra time to spare and is looking for a spot for instagram worthy pictures.

I found this place from a few blogs that recommended scenic places to visit in South Korea. It is not hard to get here. Just needed to walk quite a distance from the train station. This visit to the park is very nice if you have one whole day to spare and relax walking around to just look at the scenery. There are other parks nearby but the area is very huge and you cannot visit them all in one day. Our feets are also hurting from the long walk.

I visited during the end of Autumn, nearing winter. It was worth the trip here because it is really as beautiful as described in the blogs and when I was there, there wasn't a lot of people or tourists.

Only the starting area has some crowd, but when you start to walk up and explore the tall plant areas, it is very peaceful and quiet. And you can take beautiful photo there. Just remember to bring a tripod if you have no one to help you take photo!

I would suggest not to step into the plant area as it will kill the plants. There are already some area that people have cleared for you to step into so you can walk around and find those areas to take your photos instead.

If you do not want to hike up, there is a place near the bottom of the park to purchase a ticket for the buggy car to bring you up, One way or round trip. The ride is very nice if you can sit at the back seats which was what we did.

If you are hungry, there is a little snack shop near the tall grass area, with many choices of food and beverages. There's also a few table and benches where you can rest and eat your snacks or instant noodles on.

Just outside the train station, there are some shops selling clothes if you are not wearing enough.

I come to Hanuel Park on autumn day. The weather is so cool and little hot at noon.
The park is near by World Cup Stadium.
It's so easy to go to there by subway.
And you take electric car to the top or climb to there.
You should go to pinky grass hill.

It has fresh air and clear blue sky. I really enjoyed the moment there. You can go there by subway to World Cup Stadium Station and walk about 1 kilometres to Haneul Park. You can choose shuttle bus and pay about KRW 5,000 for round trip or just walk by the upstairs to the destination. It was good experience!!!
