Went here late in the afternoon after walking so much around Seoul. I soaked my feet on the stream and the cold water felt relaxing.

Seoul being one of the most boring places in the world, this river seems very exciting. It goes through the city. You can walk alongside it or drown yourself if Seoul is boring you too much. Recommended if you cannot get drunk at the Charles...More

If you are near Dongdaemun, just go for a nice walk. Evenings are good and lightings would be there mostly. Very peaceful area even though it's in middle of the city. But there is nothing else amusing and don't make it as a destination for...More

If your in the area you can't miss this little gem, 30mins walking along it fun, and there are heaps of artworks to look. It is fairly close to the centre and you can walk here from the centre.

In the middle of town is this small stream, but about 6 kilometers long.Very relaxing.Many possibilities to sit down and relax.

Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue
