Cheonggyecheon Stream, Seoul

4.1
#1 of 237 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.

  • To Qingxi Chuan when the truth is not very beautiful, not like the travel books blink bright, the river pretty dark, beside the side there are a lot of feelings couples so do not turn the lights? But the whole walk is very comfortable, the river will not stink, there is a laser light hit on the sprinkler screen pretty special! There is a wish pool, inside the money is donated photocopy to the Korean ghetto Sleepy children studying book used, feel quite good! It's very intentional!

  • Saw this on TV how they demolished the elevated highway to revive the stream. It was a nice experience to see it up close. The colors after winter may not be that good but the crowd was fewer.  more »
