geography [edit ]

Ilsan New Town vaguely comes to mind, but in world, the easterly boundary is Bukhansan, the western boundary is the Han River, and the city sphere itself is bombastic and has versatile geographic features. however, Bukhansan is a region protruding to the east, and the eastern end of the bound with Seoul is actually a cragged area connecting Mt. Aengbong and Mt. Bongsan. Across the Han River to the west is the city of Gimpo. At the time of the expansion of Seoul, the eastern area was given to Seoul, but Bukhansan was guided, so if you look closely at the administrative divisions on the map, it looks like a kitchen knife or a bet on. Bukhansan Mountain is distinctly visible from the vicinity of Jichuk, and surprisingly, if you drive along the expressway from the middle deck of an apartment build up in Ilsan New Town [ 10 ] or evening from the side of Isanpo, you can see Bukhansan Mountain in the distance. You can roughly estimate the upwind on that day by whether you can see it good or not .
