Seoul, South Korea: Cheonggyecheon Stream and Cheonggye Plaza Walk

By Tin Gallemaso - 9:53:00 AM

I'm showing you one of my favorite places in Seoul: Cheonggyecheon Stream

But only when there's not a lot of people though :)))


I noticed that I tend to go to tourist attractions that aren't frequented by a lot of people and that's the reason why it's almost always offbeat paths. While Cheonggyecheon is popular location of some festivals, there are a lot of days when it's not full of people. 


And this is one of those nights...


It's an 11 KM long walkway that lets you get-away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's there in the center of it all and yet you'd feel that you've traveled far away.


We were originally from DDP area and you can actually start Cheonggyecheon Walk from there but we chose the harder trail which was go up to the Seoul Fortress and then walk down to the Gwangjang Area and that's where we started the walk along the stream. 


Lantern Festival happens in November but these wall paintings are all year round. 

There are a total of 22 bridges that are built along the stream but you can also find stone bridges (like the ones on the top picture) if you want to cross to the other side of the stream. 


This is also a shooting location of a lot of Kdramas such as Chicago Typewriter. 


Not  a lot of people that night hahaha and actually, it's all because it's pass 9 PM on a winter night! :)) Wala lang kasi talagang winter sa Pilipinas kaya kahit below 5 degrees ang weather e keri lang kasi nga pag-uwi, mainit na naman. :))))


This is Cheonggye Plaza, a popular culture and arts venue and people going to walk along the stream usually starts from this part 'cause it marks the beginning of the stream.


I enjoy going to Korea during winter and this is definitely not the last! :)))
