Seoul, Gu-eui dong - Gangbyun (Riverside) SpaLand

Printer-friendly version
After reviewing a post and comments from you lovely readers I found a new 24-hour jjimjilbang not far from the Jayang-dong Happy Day Spa. This new find is called Riverside SpaLand (강변스파랜드) and gets 10 stars on Daum, but only 5/10 on Naver. You can find it just behind the East-Seoul intercity bus terminal (동서울 종합터미날), out exit 4 from Gangbyun Station. From the looks of the building it seems like a nice, large facility. The jjimjilbang shares the building with Sungjin Leisure Sports health facility. Check out the Official Site of Korea Tourism's page about Riverside SpaLand as well.

It encompasses 7 floors with a roof-top area to cool off or catch some rays this summer. In the sauna are the usual hot, warm, cool, and event baths, along with a hinoki wood bath and a walking-track/massage bath. Add two sweating rooms - humid and dry - and you've got a complete sauna. In their jjimjilbang, there are many interesting rooms. There are two traditional Korean sweating caves, one of which is made from wood; first time I've seen this. Then your usual salt, yellow soil (hwangto), and charcoal rooms, pine room, silver pyramid, fresh oxygen room, and an ice igloo. Oh, and my favorite: sleeping caves! With these and all the rest area, you'll have plenty to keep you occupied for the day.
On other floors you can find the restaurant and snack corner, PC room, books, playroom, movie room, sports massage and nail art. Full facilities in addition to the health club make this a great jjimjilbang on paper. I haven't been there yet so if any of you are able to visit, please come back here to post your ratings and reviews. Thank you!
