Once we have fun with lots of Haechi, we went to the underpass at Gwanghwamun Station to go to Cheonggyecheon Stream. The signs are pretty easy to follow. So, within minutes, we knew we have reached the correct place. The purple cone at Cheonggye Plaza said it all. ^^
Note: Just few steps from the cone, there are two photo booths which let you take picture with different backgrounds of Seoul. In addition, you can write your message on the picture. Once you have fun taking, editing and beautifying your picture, you can send it to your email. We spent roughly 30 minutes playing around with this photo booth.
Cheonggyecheon Stream is an awesome spot to have in a bustling Seoul. No wonder a lot of locals love to hang around here just to spend time while looking at the calm water.
The stream passes a lot of subway stations. Hence, you don’t really have to start from one end or another. If you want to start from the starting point, though, the “Rhytmic Wall Stream” may be a great one to start with. If you visit the stream at night, the wall will be lit up. It will be decorated during festive season too.
The water flow along the stream is not the same throughout. For example, at this section, the water current is stronger and it is decorated with greens at its right and left.
If you want to play around at the stream, there are stepping stones at certain section of the stream. Jump! Jump! Yay!
If you want to go to Cheonggyecheon Stream, you can go to either one of these stations:
Subway Line 1: City Hall Station, Jonggak Station, Jongno 3-ga Station, Jongno 5-ga Station, Dongdaemun Station, Sinseoldong Station
Line 2: Euljiro 1-ga Station, Euljiro 3-ga Station, Euljiro 4-ga Station, Sindang Station, Sangwangsibni Station
Line 3: Jongno 3-ga Station
Line 4: Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station
Line 5: Gwanghwamun Station
Once you have reached one of the above stations, just follow the sign to Cheonggyecheon Stream. Have fun!
