Cheonggyecheon Stream

After a tiring half day tour of the DMZ, we're back in Itaewon just in time for late lunch.
Korean barbecue for the win! Nomnomnom. :)

We ate at this restaurant called Ever Green just walking distance from IP Boutique Hotel in Itaewon and food was ohhhhh soooo good! I miss the bibimbap!

Someone please explain, noticed that Koreans also have this HUGE obsession with coffee. They're all over the place! There must have been a hundred coffee shops along Itaewon-ro street alone.

Our last stop for the day was the Cheonggyecheon Stream.

Cheonggyecheon Stream is a 5.8 km creek flowing west to east through downtown Seoul.

After the Korean War, Koreans started building makeshift houses in the sides of the creek. You know, very Pasig River lang. It has become an eyesore within the city of Seoul until the government decided to have a major restoration of the area.

Restoration was completed in 2005 and has since then became one of the top tourist areas in Seoul.

The stream makes me feel like I'm off to the spa or something. Seriously now, there's still hope for Pasig River! Medyo major major nga lang the restoration needed for that but di ba? ;) Puwede!

Chillaxing treat for our feet after a long day tour around South Korea.

A little off topic here. My cousin Jay loved the fact that Seoul offers FREE WIFI. Yes, folks! Free and FAST wifi for everyone! I love Seoul!

It's sooo fast I was able to upload this video in a snap!

Wouldn't it be nice to have this kind of recreation in the middle of the business district? Good job Seoul! ;)
