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. Put Cheonggyecheon Stream on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Seoul travel itinerary planner.

  • It's a nice clean stream in the middle of a bustling city. Relaxing place to take a stroll but IMO, not work going out of your way to see it.
