Seoul is the capital city of South Korea and is divided into 25 wards or Gu. Ganseo is one such enclave, located on the south side of the Han River. Ganseo is the primary source of transportation in Seoul, providing transport, and operating administratively, from both the Gimpo International Airport and the Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Boards, which are located here. In addition, Seoul is committed to being a progressively green city and features over fifty parks, some of the loveliest being in Gangseo. You can shop at NC Department store or take a walk in world-famous Gangseo Park—perfect for the whole family.
- Visit the Heojun Museum, which is located in Gangseo and honours the life of Heo Jun, a court physician in the Joseon Dynasty under King Seonjo.
- Explore Gangseo Hangang Park at the edge of Seoul and the Hangang River where there are several observatories to help you watch and learn about the native birds.
- See each of the five palaces in Seoul, located throughout the city, each of which was built during the Joseon Dynasty and housed the kings and queens of Korea.
Visitors to Seoul will land in the Incheon International Airport unless they are coming from Japan, in which case they will land in Gangseo's Gimpo International. To leave the airport, you may choose taxi, bus, metro, or car hire. Unless you plan to travel outside the city, it would be better to take public transportation as traffic is difficult, and parking is expensive. There are several metro lines that go to Gangseo. They are subway line 2, Seoul subway line 5, and Seoul metro line 9. Taxis may be cheaper than buses or subways if you can share a cab.
