The Basics

Some 380 water jets on both sides of Banpo Bridge Rainbow Foundation pump water from the Han River to a fountain display meant to resemble willow branches in the wind. When the sun goes down, the Moonlight Rainbow Fountain lights up, and 20-minute shows add music to the spectacle. Many guided nighttime tours via bus or bike, or on foot, include a stop at the bridge.
