Some Sevit means ‘Three Shining Islands’ in Korean. This location was opened to the pubic in October of 2014.The three separate islands have been given the names Gavit, Chavit and Solvit. All three islands are connected by bridges and connect to the mainland. A key feature on the islands is a floating stage named the Media Art Gallery that includes a large oversized LED screen built specifically for multimedia shows etc.
Gavit is host to the convention centre that supports business meetings and events such as fashion shows in Seoul; the island also contains some cafes on different floors within the building.
Chavit is the island dedicated to restaurants that provide several different types of cuisines.
Solvit is a water sports facility making full use of its location on the Hangang River. One of the activities you can do is to go on a tube shaped boat (tubester) around the water both during the day and the late evening time.
Some Sevit is quite a spectacular sight during the evening and nighttime. Led lights on all the outer walls light the structures. The lights change colours every few minutes and the vibrant display illuminates the body of water that surrounds each of the islands.
Many of the locals come to Some Sevit to sit down, watch the light shows and enjoy the serenity that the area provides. The Island is a unique place to visit in Seoul and the views of the Hangang River are beautiful. I feel it is best to visit this venue in the evening instead of the morning especially if you enjoy taking photographs.
How to get there:
Take the metro to the Express Bus Terminal Station that is on metro lines 3, 7 and 9. Take Exit 8-1 and Some Sevit is less than 15 minutes walk away.
