We were so lucky to see the Lantern Festival! This is a man made walkway with a stream of water that is under the traffic and is 5 miles long. It is a well planned space for a busy city.

Yes, I've been here before in 2009. Still, I'm amazed at how the people have kept this stream clean. Hats off to you! See attached pictures and notice the clear water and wildlife. There are CCTV cameras along the stream, too.

We walked for about 1 mile along this stream, which features a narrow park-like setting on both sides, and found this space to provide a lovely respite from the city’s noise and high-rises. Part of a program to provide green areas in Seoul, the area...More

this was an unusual find, a gentle stream running through modern skyscrapers on both banks. Good for a quick escape.

This is a great little walk and at the moment it’s hosting the lantern festival and a good place to grab a drink or some food and sit in The Sun

Hi - I don't know about a lantern festival. The stream and walkways, including bridges and stepping stones, looks nice at night because of the lighting along the pathways.
