Han River and the Moonlight Rainbow Fountain

The Han River is located in Seoul, the capital of South Korea, and the river goes right through the center of Seoul. It's also the fouth longest river on the Korean peninsula after the Amnok, Duman  and Nakdong rivers.
On boths sides of the river, there's walkways and bicycle paths. There's lots of restaurants and cafes located on boths sides.

The Banpo Bridge is a bridge that strikes over the Han River, connecting the Seocho and the Yongsan disticts. Banpo Bridge is actually on top of Jamsu Bridge, making it a double bridge. and it's famous for it's colorful bridge fountain. 

The bridge fountain is called Moonlight Rainbow Fountain (달빛무지개 분수), and it's actually the worlds longest bridge fountain. The fountain looks beautiful at night, when the colorful water shoots as  far as 43 meters over the Han River.
