its right smack in the middle of Seoul. one cannot miss it while roaming around seoul. We went in the winter so there was no light show, however I heard its pretty nice. Good to stroll along absorb the atmosphere and if you have a good guide, like we did can tell you some intresting facts about it.

Took a long winter walk from Dongdaemun upto the city centre with freinds (about 5 kilometers, by my reckoning). It was so refreshing to hear the rippling of water all through the walk, and to see the highrise office buildings with people working away even at 8 in the night above the wall. I was told that there are fish... More

It was a wonderful place to just stroll along and chat while being next to the clear, clean and beautiful stream. The decorations changes throughout the year. We went both in the day and at night. In the day, it was crowded and many people was around taking pictures. At night, it was quiet and there was colorful lights up... More

Right in the center of downtown, it's a place to have a stroll. I went there in day time, but I think it would be more romantic at night when the lights on.

This is just a real tranquil place where you can have a leisurely walk and enjoy a really clean street with rock crossings which create mini waterfalls. The stream passes close to Deoksugung Palace, Seoul Plaza, the Sejong Center, Insa-dong Street, Changdeokgung Palace, and Changgyeonggung Palace, allowing visitors to easily visit major tourist sites after a leisurely stroll along the...

this is why walking through Seoul is so great. The city management has really thought extensively on creating unique green space and natural experiences in the middle of a huge metropolitan area. Close to major areas and easy to experience with the Myeongdong, Insadong and Gyeongbokdong palace. I walk it frequently and enjoy it each time.

Nice scenery along the stream. You will pass many famous attractions along the walking way. It's better to visit around 5 pm. and walk until night time. Better to start at Cheonggye Plaza , the beginning point near Gwangwhamun Square.

Located South East of Gyeongbokgung Palace; The canal had a purple conch architecture iconic display at begining of the stream. These are a place where you could chill linger your time and emotion and watch city life goes by.
