Famous park of Cheonggyecheon @ Seoul, South Korea

Recently, I am having my personal trip to Seoul, Korea. This mega city has a lot to offer and has its own uniqueness. Basically, I like this city very much as it has everything that people has in mind. The subway system is so efficient, good internet connectivity, good food, unlimited shopping choices, trendy, good looking people & nice park which I am covering in this entry. I am sure anyone of you might have heard a famous park in the middle of Seoul. This park was initially a very polluted area due to industrialization of Seoul. The restoration of Cheonggyecheon cost around USD900 million and it received much objection from the public. But this place has quickly become a major attraction area in Seoul and a good relaxing place for its residence. The area is now a clean and pleasant to walk. At night, it has become a place for couples to gather.


This marks the starting of the park.

Some people come here to exercise.
