Hello everybody! Today we’re going to talk about a special modern stream that runs through downtown Seoul called Cheonggyecheon Stream.
This stream is a beautiful and long modern-style river that is over 10km long. Surrounded by tall buildings as well as trees, Cheonggyecheon is located right in the middle of a bustling city. Right upon your arrival, you’ll notice that it is not just your average river. It’s a narrow river filled with rocks and fish. Also if you go to the end of the stream, you’ll come across a small waterfall that you’ll enjoy even during the nighttime because it lights up in various hues. It’s the perfect place to relax, hang out with friends, or each lunch. There are plenty of events that happen during each season for you to come back and enjoy.
Out of all the events that happen throughout the year, the Lantern Festival is held near the end of Fall. This year also happens to mark the 10thAnniversary of the festival. It features various life-size lanterns made by artists all over the world. Some of the lanterns include Seoul Station, Mount Rushmore, and Olympic mascots. To make the event even better, it’s totally free. If you want to attend the Lantern Festival, we highly suggest that you get there before sunset and stay there until late evening. Since their lanterns, it’s more enjoyable if you see them during the evening than morning and afternoon.
