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!

We st err polled along the water on our way to eat out. The sides are nicely maintained for enjoying the water and wildlife. Very relaxing and unexpected for a city of this size.

The stream has delightful walking paths alongside. Whilst we walked we noticed little rapids, places to cross the stream as well as many fish. A nice place to forget you are in the middle of a big city.

Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue
