What people say

"Cheonggyecheon stream and the adjoining Cheonggye plaza’s main entrance happens to be near Gwanghwamun, but it is easily accessible from Dongdaemun station too. This stream seems to bring Jongno-gu and Jung-gu (downstream) together, ultimately leading them to the Han River. The stream also happens to be a popular hangout spot, especially for a group of friends. The waters and the adjacent greenery are surrounded by an urban setting, which becomes a convenient place to visit and have fun. During the sunset, the stream and the lighted plaza seems to be at its most beautiful. Cheonggyecheon is also seen to be hosting community events or even some amateur Korean concerts; make sure you don’t miss them while you are around. "
"Good to take walks around Cheonggyecheon is a 10.9-kilometre-long modern public recreation space in downtown Seoul, South Korea. The massive urban renewal project is on the site of a stream that flowed before the rapid post-war economic development caused it to be covered by transportation infrastructure."
"Technically it goes all the way to the hang gang river, however the best way to see it is to go to the cheonggye plaza and follow the stream up to around euljiro3-ga station, as further away you go, the less walkable it is and all you'll find past that point is just wild nature. "
