Cheonggyecheon Stream, Seoul

(2,800+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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 trip builder.

  • Nice river to walk along but that's about it. A place to talk rather than a place to enjoy the river.  more »
  • This stream area runs for miles through downtown Seoul. It is a lovely, green area to stroll, sit, people watch, sketch, chat with a friend. It is also a great place to run as you are below streetleve...  more »
  • This was a very enjoyable walk through the city. Used it twice going to and from our hotel. It was very pretty with birds and murals. Signs explaining history in English.  more »
