Banpo Grand Bridge: World's longest bridge fountain

Banpo Grand Bridge is famous as it is a Guinness World Record holder for its Moonlight Rainbow Fountain. It is the longest bridge fountain in the world which measures 1,140 metres (3,740 ft 1 in).
Running along the length of the bridge are 380 nozzles that send 54 tonnes (60 tons) of water cascading 43 m (140 ft) horizontally and 20 m (65 ft) down into the river every minute. In the evening, LED lights illuminate the water spray, which “dances” in time to 100 different pieces of music. - Source: Guinness

As you can see, it is a double-deck bridge which is a first in Korea.
Banpo bridge is the upper part while the lower part is Jamsu Bridge.
Those are over Hangang/Han River and connects districts - Seocho & Yongsan.

P & I watched the fountain show at the Banpo Hangang Park.
The fountain dances to a song while changing colors. Very beautiful. 
I dunno why but fountain shows makes me very happy.

During my 2012 visit (with superfriends), we cancelled this one due to time constraints.

You can also have a different view of this fountain show if you'll take the Han River cruise. I saw 2 when we were there.

When watching, please bundle up as it tends to be so cold there. Ours was even freezing.

Keep in mind that the show is not available all-year round.

Go down the staircase and head to the river. Then, turn right and continue walking along the river bank.
You will pass Dongjak Bridge before reaching Banpo Bridge. The distance is about 1.5km away and a slow walk should take about 30 minutes. Source: kenwooi
