Seoul opens one third of world’s largest artificial floating island complex


Seoul is gaining a steady threshold in the luxury segment. The latest is the world’s largest artificial floating island on the Han River as a major new tourism attraction. It will be an archipelago of three man-made islets – of which the first one was launched last week, called Viva. It covers 3,271 sq meters of the total 20,400 square meter complex and will have a three-storey building that will have a 700-seat convention hall, restaurants, video games, parks, outdoor terraces and viewing points surrounding the center. Once all the islands open more facilities will be added like cultural centers that will feature water sports and aquatic events. The entire complex will be able to accommodate 6,200 people.
