Cheonggyecheon Canal

This 8.4 km long flow proves that renovations can completely change the public perception of something. The stream used to be polluted and looked like a huge pile of garbage.

The project was initially defeated by the public, but after it was completed, this place became a popular place to relax and enjoy nature. The water has been purified and has become a natural habitat for various species of fish, insects and birds. It also helped to cool the environment by 3.5 ° C, and the stream protects against heavy flooding during heavy rains. There are numerous festivals where the water and paths along the creek light up and provide a romantic atmosphere for locals and tourists. It is highly recommended to visit this place in summer, as the cold breeze is a nice surprise after a few hours of walking in the concrete jungle.
