Seoul's Banpo Bridge Turns into Gigantic Fountain, Puts NYC's Waterfalls to Shame

Illustration for article titled Seoul's Banpo Bridge Turns into Gigantic Fountain, Puts NYC's Waterfalls to Shame

The Banpo Bridge in Seoul, South Korea just got a major facelift in the form of a 10,000-nozzle fountain that runs all the way along both its sides. They were just installed last month, but already the bridge has turned into a major tourist attraction. Which is understandable, as I've certainly never driven over a bridge that's pumping out 190 tons of water per minute. And since it's just pulling up water from the river below, it's nice and eco-friendly. Hit the jump for a video of this awesome bridge in action.

It's like a combo of the NYC Waterfalls and the Bellagio fountains, but somehow is cooler than both. I like it! [Freshome via Neatorama]
