Walking Through Cheonggyecheon

There’s a park in downtown Seoul called Cheonggyecheon. It is built on the site of a stream that is sandwiched between two busy boulevards. Apparently, the area looks pretty amazing at night.

My colleagues and I took a stroll after lunch. You can pretty much see all types of people enjoying the stream including mothers playing with children, elderly people taking a brisk walk, and even businessmen taking a quick nap underneath a bridge.

See the remaining pictures after the jump.

This is definitely one of the prettiest places in Seoul I’ve seen thus far. I think the juxtaposition of nature (plants, water, and rocks) and city (brick and steel) give this area a very unique and well-integrated look and feel.
