If you’re following along with my (very tardy) chronological order of summer events in Seoul with my mom, you know we visited some cool palaces and caught a glimpse of the Blue House. Another site that isn’t too far from the palaces (and is $Free.99) is Cheonggyecheon Stream.
How to Get There:
Line 2 (green line) at the following stations: Euljiro 1-ga Station, Exit 3; Euljiro 3-ga Station (also Line 3, orange line), Exit 4 or 5; Euljiro 4-ga (also Line 5, purple line), Exit 3 or 4.
Line 1 (dark blue line): Jonggak Station, Exit 5; Jongno 3-ga Station (also Line 3 and Line 5), Exit 12/13/14.
The stream is a famous site for many festivals that happen in Seoul, and is just a generally scenic place to relax, people watch, or take a walk.
Finally, we ended our night with a light show at Banpo Bridge on the Han River. Read more about that here!
