The Cheonggyecheon Stream (청계천) flows for 5.8km though Downtown Seoul from near City Hall to the Han River which connects to the Yellow Sea. The stream has been redeveloped at a cost of around $261Million and official reopened in 2006. In the past 6 years the stream has become a popular tourist attraction. Also every year it hosts part of Seouls lantern festival along with other events.
Cheonggyecheon Stream is a nice place to visit although its better in the Spring or Fall, Winter is a little to cold and it gets very busy in the Summer.
The stream flows 5.8kms and so it’s easy to find just a part of it however here is a map of where it official starts near City Hall, just in case you’re thinking about taking a nice 5km walk though downtown Seoul:
