Introduction to Hanam City : Up-and-coming Satellite City of Seoul

Hanam is one of the up-and-coming cities in South Korea with its improvement in accessibility and beautiful landmarks.

Hanam city is located in the middle east of Gyeonggi Province. It is a satellite city of Seoul and was promoted into the city in 1989. The name “Hanam” was named after Hanam Wirye Fortress(하남위례성), known as the capital of Baekje in ancient history. Moreover, the Chinese character of Hanam is composed of 河(The river, meaning Hangang River) 南(South) which explains the location of the city. The living area of the city is quite small compared to other Gyeonggi cities (93km²) as 77% of the city is designated as a green belt (development restricted). It is bordered by Namyangju to the north across the Hangang River, Seoul to the west, Yangpyeong to the west and Gwangju City to the south.

As it is right next to the east side of Seoul City, it is one of the accessible cities in Gyeonggi Province by road to Seoul. As of 2020 August, Metropolitan Subway Line 5 was extended to Hanam City which highly improved the accessibility to Seoul city.
