Over 10 Million Visit Seoul's Flyover Park Since Opening
More than 10 million people have visited Seoullo since the flyover park opened in May last year, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said Wednesday.
The number of average daily visitors stood at 20,000 on weekdays and 30,000 on weekends, with those in their 20s and 30s accounting for 26.1 percent and 23.9 percent of all visitors, respectively. A full one-fifth of visitors were foreign tourists.
In a survey of 900 people who visited the park between last September and December, most respondents said they visited to take a walk or enjoy the cityscape.
The most popular place to go before or after touring the park was Namdaemun Market (38.6 percent), which is within walking distance, followed by nearby Seoul Station (23.9 percent).
