Running through downtown Seoul, the Cheonggyecheon Stream brings natural beauty
into the heart of the city. The stream was once entombed in concrete,
and covered by an elevated highway, but is now accessible, and enjoyed by thousands
of people each day. Unique bridges and stepping stone pathways
cross the stream, many of which have strong symbolic meaning. The local government has spent hundreds of
millions of dollars making the Cheonggyecheon Stream an important
part of Seoul’s urban landscape.
