The Han River with Seoul in the background.
Hubby and I before we boarded the boat.
Hubby and I had a great time on our Saturday night date. We went on the Han River Dinner cruise. The Han River runs through Seoul and there is plenty to keep you busy along the banks of the Han River, jogging & biking paths, swimming pools, roller skating rinks, floating restaurants & much more. We have yet to experience much along the Han River, however, once the weather cools off I am sure we will be going there most weekends. The cruise started at 7:30PM, just before sunset. The food on the boat was amazing! There was so much sushi and sashimi I wanted to do back flips. There were salads, several different types of seafood, tons of fresh fruit, many Korean dishes, and Korean desserts, although you know how I feel about those and there were other things I cannot remember. I really just ate sushi & sashimi (and ate, and ate, and ate). Oh, and for Jana, they had SPAM cooked several different ways. YUCK!
During dinner there was a man playing the piano and singing. He sang every song in English, the thing even stranger than him singing in English is that we didn't even notice he was singing in English until about half way through when our friend pointed it out! The after dinner entertainment was BELLY DANCING!
Although the food was good & we had a great time, I was a little disappointed that the boat did not have decks all around. There was only one small deck out back, and that was the smoking deck (where we are standing below), so we could only tolerate it for a few minutes. I had read many things about how nice it is to see the lights of Seoul on the Pleasure Boat Cruise, so to have to see them through foggy glass & smoke filled air was not what I had envisioned. Although I am happy we did the dinner cruise, and I felt it was worth it, we will be going back in a few weeks to do the cruise without dinner so we can soak up Seoul at night.
