Cheonggyecheon Stream

Before Seoul Government conducted a major refurbishment to the stream in 2003, Cheonggyecheon was only a stream tucked below an elevated road. In 2005, this small river that is just 8.4 kilometres long is open for public and became an oasis in the concrete jungle that is Seoul. Crossed through by more than 20 bridges, the sides of the river are walkways embellished with unique themes. The location of the stream itself is close to Deoksugung Palace, Seoul Plaza, The Sejong Center, Insadong street, and other tourist attractions. That makes it a convenient and place to rendezvous or chill out between destinations.

    Photos can be the best souvenirs to take home after traveling to another country. In Seoul, you can lots of photo spots to choose from. In Cheonggyecheon alone, you can find a Unicorn Horn at the entrance to the stream area.
