It is near the city hall station and is very nice place to visit. There is not only the stream but also a nice fall.

This is about the most peaceful place in Seoul that I could possibly think of. Spring and fall are great times to visit, and the stream also plays host to the Lantern Festival in November. Usually a lot of space to relax, unwind, and contemplate.

Amazed by the size and amount of fish in this stream, great place to cool your feet off in the heat, and Bang right in the middle of the city!

A lovely way to get through the city, walking by the stream. There are little rocks that you can use to cross the stream and you can take shelter from the sun under the bridges, just like the locals. At the end is a waterfall...More

most important historic sites and neighborhoods. Being
one of Seoul’s oldest neighborhoods, the area is rich
with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and
