Cheonggyecheon Stream

Cheonggyecheon Stream Review

Recently restored in 2005, Cheonggyecheon is a cool respite from Seoul's summer heat. Running east-west through the city, this is one of the best places to go for a spring or summer stroll. For people-watchers, the stream is filled with simple scenes of folks taking a break from Seoul's hectic pace. Couples walk hand in hand, students gather, and even businessmen some here to relax on their lunch break. A good place to start is Cheonggye Plaza at the west end of the stream with its Claes Oldberg pop-art sculpture Spring. On weekends from April to November, the Plaza hosts events for the Cheonggyecheon Cultural Festival.
