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

It is worth strolling along a little of this stream if you are in the area as it is a peaceful oasis hidden beneath the bustling metropolis of Seoul.

After a day's tiring tour of the city, we went here and dipped our tired feet in its cold water even if it was summer already. What a relief!! It was enough to recharge and to scour again its surroundings. I suggest you navigate the...More

Worth a visit just to see where Hello Monster and Lie to me was shot (and other dramas). You can sit down but nothing much to do but just walk and take pic.

It is a large palace - lots of building. Enjoyed the walk around the palace grounds - best to follow the guide starting at building 1 and not the crowd. Very little display in the buildings except at the main hall. Interesting floor heating system...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.
Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue

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
