Cheonggyecheon Stream, Seoul

4.1
#1 of 212 in Nature in South Korea
See how a successful eco-friendly urban renewal project created a popular tourist spot at Cheonggyecheon Stream. Before the nation's rapid economic development after the war, the district stood as a neglected waterway secluded by an overpass. However, after the renovation and beautification project, it evolved into a modern public recreation space and a haven for natural habitats. Inspect the passing stream from one of two historic bridges--Gwangtonggyo and Supyogyo--and see how it teems with animal and plant life amid a highly urbanized city. You'll find many shops and small businesses here; feel free to pay them a visit and purchase their goods, souvenirs, or services.

  • Walk along this laid out channel, downtown, very nice. The course's own, there is a beautiful wall coverings, flowers and even a few birds (heron), tall buildings seen below seems well off as the noise of the city, it turned out very nice...

  • Family night on Saturday evening, the food delicious and the streets also looking around is a good place also. Plenty of hugs on weekends and heavy transport vehicles. Parking is so difficult.
