Sometimes cities are just full of buildings, and sometimes they’re not. A fun place to visit on a hot day, or any day really, is the Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs right through downtown Seoul. Get away for lunch, or get away for a few hours on the weekend, to enjoy some peace and quiet. Go ahead, take your shoes off and dip them in the stream, I won’t tell anyone.
Adults and children of all ages will love walking along the river, enjoying the scenery, and soaking up some sun and culture.
Directions: take Seoul Subway line 1 or 2 to the City Hall exit. There are also other places to get off and see the stream, check them out over here.
