Scenic Beauty La Veniche: Gimpo’s Golden Waterway


Dreaming of Venice in Korea La Veniche: Gimpo’s Golden Waterway
La Veniche: Gimpo’s Golden Waterway img

La Veniche March Avenue is the “Venice of Gimpo,” which is on par with Venice, Italy. Located in Janggi-dong, Gimpo, it has become a hot tourist spot, particularly among younger generations, as must-visit restaurants and shopping malls line the walkway. Its beautiful scenery also reminds you of the City of Water. 

La Veniche’s real beauty reveals itself under the starry night sky as extravagant lights hit the water’s surface, creating a mystical atmosphere. A 2.7 km walking path lies along a cozy waterway, and there is an arch bridge and a fountain nearby. Along with these outfits, La Veniche, a European-style shopping mall by the canal, has become one of the best night view spots in Korea. As all the stores and streetlights light up brightly with beautiful LED, this entire area gives off a unique atmosphere. You can also take a walk or relax at a waterside café while enjoying the night scenery. In addition, you can participate in an exclusive special activity at La Veniche: the Moon Boat rides. Moon Boat refers to a floating crescent—moon-shaped boat with lights, reminiscent of a gondola in Venice. Once on the boat, you would feel like the protagonist in a fairy tale where you fly on the moon in the night sky. The boat can accommodate up to 2 adults and 1 child, with each ride lasting for about 30 min. A family boat ideal for carrying more than four passengers and a paddleboat, which is a small human-powered watercraft propelled by pedals turning a paddle wheel, are also available.
