Shop Amazon

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.

Time Killer

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.
