A masterpiece of urban renewal, Cheonggyecheon was a river flowing through ancient Seoul that was eventually covered over and then turned into an expressway. In 2003, the city government decided to uncover the old stream, and create a park right in the heart of Seoul. And it’s a great success, a truly lovely waterway in the midst of hectic traffic and bustle.

The Festival of Lanterns officially kicks off tomorrow – we were lucky enough to get an early viewing.
