Right outside the Gyeongbokgung Palace is the Gwanghwamun square.

There is this nice green patch of land in the middle and you will see the back of the statue of King Sejong sitting on his throne.

Underneath is a museum..

You can also walk strait towards the story of Admiral Yushin – you might remember him through the drama of Queen Seon Deok played by actor Uhm Tae Woong.

We exited the museum through an elevator and asked an Ahjussi at the door where we can find Cheonggyecheon Stream. He pointed us towards the right direction. We were on an intersection and we were a bit unsure which direction to take so we decided to ask inside a Tourist Information office. They’re at most tourist places and they’re a lot of help. :)

The Cheonggyechoen Stream. It’s a new addition to Seoul. It was only recently revived and opened to the public in 2005. It’s probably one of my favorite places in Seoul.

They had a Breast Cancer awareness thing at the time of our visit.

They also had a modern wishing well..

So nice.. I wish we had this somewhere in the Philippines.

The kids love to cross the stone steps..

If you walk along the Cheongyecheon stream, you could choose the exits to Jongno, Insadong or Dongdaemun. We chose to explore the Insadong area.
