Day 4: Cheonggyecheon stream-5/20/23

Cheonggyecheon Stream is about 5 mile long waterway an public space that runs from west to east through the heart of downtown Seoul and created as part of an urban renewal project.

 The stream was covered with an elevated highway after the Korean War (1950-1953), as part of the country's post-war economic development. Then in 2003, the elevated highway was removed to restore the stream to its present form. The stream starts from Cheonggye Plaza, a popular cultural arts venue, and passes under a total of 22 bridges before flowing into the Hangang River, with many attractions along the way.

It is so beautiful at night and also so peaceful.

In September 2005, Cheonggyecheon was reopened to the public. This new landmark is now a popular destination for tourists and locals who want to experience natural beauty and wildlife in a large, urban city

There are a lot of fish in the stream.


Lovely to walk around this area.


Twenty-two bridges along the stream were newly built with a total length of over 5.84 kilometers.

Simply gorgeous to look around.  Cheonggyecheon offers a touch of nature and an eco-friendly warmth.



Part of the stream has a stronger current.


 Recently, various cultural facilities were added to its banks, with greater focus on artistic and ecological activities. Now, the stream is at the center of Seoul citizens’ cultural activities
