Lovely to walk along this stream if you are near Insa-dong. During the day, the path is nice but at night, it's lit. Really pretty for the holidays!

This stream existed a long time ago but had a highway built over during the country's rapid industrialization period after the Korean War. However, it was reopened in 2005 as part of the city's urban renewal. There are walkways on both sides of the stream but I'd advise you it any other time than winter because the walls on both sides act like a wind tunnel, so it was really really cold after just being inside for 10mins.

Please observe that depending on what time of the year you go here it can be completly desolate. (just a walking path next to the stream in the city)

You have to check out Seoul tourist website to see if there is an even going on here or not.

Depending on the even it can be amazing or quite meh. The lantern festival is usually great, the kimchi festival did next to nothing for me. Sometimes they have some art installations which were very nice.

In a busy city of Seoul there is a walking stream path. While it isn't anything special the stream path was good to get away. There are lanterns that lights up at night time

This is definitely a site to see! No entrance fee, walkable from Myeongdong, 15 mins. It's amazing how the old unused canal has been converted into a nice green eco-rich area. You can stay here as long as you want, sit, read, eat. Beautiful place!
