I went there during the beginning of fall in the evening so it was pretty chilly. After a long day of walking around my feet did need to relax. It's a good decision to visit Cheonggyecheon. We saw a lot of people sitting with their feet in the stream so we followed them (hehe!). Would definitely go there again to... More

It was cold, but sunny, Saturday afternoon, the area was packed due to the Kimchi Festival, so going down the stream was a relief. I enjoyed all the art sculptures during the Lantern Festival Very intricate, detailed and with different themes, ranging from traditional architecture, dress and customs, to modern pop art and cartoons. All is free. Enjoyed best at... More

Photogenic spot. Perfect place to finish your JAWS tteokbokki in the winter or cool off with an ice cream or iced coffee from one of the many cafes along the promenade in the summer.

This is really hit or miss! If you are lucky and you go when there's some kind of art installation (ex. Lantern festivall) then it's great! If you are unlucky and go on a cold January day when there's nothing going on then it's not really great. Try and go in the evening to see the citiscape! Also you can... More

The city has done a lot to renew this area of town and it shows. It's a very nice walking area. There is a great Nepalese/Tibetan restaurant (Potala) and an interesting museum. There isn't a whole lot to say about the area. There are some good bars surrounding the stream. Tip: It's popular on weekend nights to by beer from... More

It was a relaxing night scroll we had but nothing much other than some lightings along the stream. Can dropby for a visit if you have a bit of time or passby.

Its just a simple hangout place which is well taken care of and so beautiful at night. Spent time chit chating with my friends on our last night at Seoul which was truly an awesome way to end our trip.
