In a city that was once largely devoid of natural spaces, Cheonggyecheon is one of the best places in Seoul for walking, people watching or simply taking a break from a walking tour of the surrounding historic district. During the summers, the city hosts cultural festivals and concerts as part of the Cheonggyecheon Cultural Festival. The waters of the Cheonggyecheon stream light up each night, and the city adorns the trees with thousands of lights come Christmas time.
Jiny, my guide, was top-notch. A young lady with a vast knowledge of her city, and is good at conveying it to others. She taught me a few phrases in Korean that I used the rest of my trip.
Thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Mr Kim - parents and teenage kids alike. We saw parts of Seoul we would totally have missed on our own. Mr Kim obviously loves his city and it was wonderful to see his enthusiasm, energy and pride as he showed us his city. Thank you.
A very enjoyable day.
