The Cheonggyecheon is a 10.9km long stream in downtown Seoul, providing a beautiful recreational space in the hustle bustle of the city.
Before 2003, the stream was in ruins. A project then undertaken for the restoration of the stream completed transformed it into a much needed balance to the urban metropolitan. The stream runs from the Cheonggye Plaza all the way to tha Han river, with 22 bridges built across it and many places to relax along it's length, such as the Candle Fountain and Palseokdam Wishing Wells. You will find crowds of people seated and walking along the banks of the stream, creating a vibrant atmosphere. The Cheonggye Plaza at the foot of the stream is a popular location for various events. It's adorned with fine stonework, water fountains and displays information on the restoration of the bridge and it's bridges.
