I absolutely love visiting the Cheonggyecheon Stream! This is a place I could've visited every day during my week in Seoul and still enjoyed it. My first experience visiting the stream was on my second night in the city and this was during the Seoul...More

The walkway was shut following two days of torrential rain. But even from the street above, it was a refreshing natural area with some landscape design and art work to liven up the vistas.

It is always a cozy, a convenient place in the center of Seoul city. I like to take a walk by myself, or to go with friends especially in summer!

We arrived here using Google maps direction. A lot of bushes at that area. After a walk downstream, found a scenic place. Can see big fishes and turtle. Don't forget to bring fish food to give them.

After a visit to Gwangjang Market, we decided to take an evening stroll along the stream. It was a Friday night and quite a few people were out and about. At one point, there was a duo performing on one side of the stream with...More

This stream cuts through the city but otherwise is pretty unimpressive if you come from a place with lots of natural water.

This river in the heart of Seoul affords a pleasant stroll for singles, couples, and families. One suggested itinerary is to start in Insadong and walk south on Samil-daero past Tapgol Park (on the left as you walk south) to the river. At the river,...More

We spent a nice hour an half following the stream. Incredibly clean and well maintained saw some interesting birds and wild life. A very tranquil way to spend and hour or two in a big city

The Cheonggyecheon Stream used to be covered by roading but was dug up some years ago to reveal the stream. Nice place to have a wander particularly during a hot day. Many people sit with their legs in the water relaxing and cooling down. During...More

Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.

I took Exit 5 of Jongak metro station. Walk down the road for a few minutes and you will reach the stream. Turn right to walk along the stream, best at night between 7 to 8 pm. You can walk down to the stream and you go... More
