We dropped by the Cheonggyecheon Stream last weekend to check the lantern displays. It was the the Lotus Lantern Festival and the famous Cheonggyecheon Stream had its annual lantern displays. I wanted to check the Lantern Parade but well… we opted to just check out the stream.
They were a lot of people but not as much as I expected:-).
Hubby, the boys and I walked the whole stretch of the stream. Considering how the stream was three or four decades ago, one would delight in thinking how this stream was transformed to become one of the busiest tourist attractions in Seoul… for free. Aside from the lantern displays, there was entertainment from a street singer with his own band the afternoon we were there. You could also see murals in one part of the Stream:
