A full evening’s entertainment

In the bustling city that is Seoul, the nearly 6-kilometre stretch of the Cheonggyecheon Stream is an oasis of calm. Running below street level, the stream has waterfalls that are romantically illuminated after dark. If you fancy a late night bite, you can sample typical Korean dishes in the numerous cafés and eateries in the streets of Samcheong-dong. For a night out, trendy Koreans flock to the Apgujeong-dong-district, Seoul’s very own Beverly Hills.
