Go here just to take a walk and explore many coffee shops lining up the road on both the sides with a very European feel. Note : Make sure you know how to get a taxi back to your hotel. We had to wait for a long time before we got a cab.

I highly recommend visiting this place as the river is very clean and has no foul smell. Very close to train stations and shopping areas.

Only two years to tear down a highway and restore the river that was buried underground for decades. Do some research into the history and you will really appreciate what you are seeing. Bring your kids and let them waddle int he water, but remember to bring towels and fresh clothes to change them and not catch a cold!

This is a peaceful and relaxing walk within this busy city Seoul. There nothing much to expect, but surely is a very relaxing walk. You may start this walk 1 or 2 hrs ahead before ending it at Dong Deamun for night shopping.

A beautiful place at night that I love visiting whenever I'm in Gwanghamun Don't miss out because it's nice The lantern festival is beautiful too, but be prepared for a huge crowd I suggest taking time to walk the whole trip to the end Start from gwanghamun and walk down to the end

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighborhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighborhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighborhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the center of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
