Imagine taking a stroll along this 8km-long trail in the bustling capital of South Korea

Every now and then, far too rarely in our humble opinion, city planners come up with a really great public space.

We’re talking about an inspiring place where you can hang out in the sun with your friends, read a book or simply indulge deep thoughts.

Think New York’s Highline and the People’s Park in Copenhagen.

Seoul is fortunate to have such a place. The 8km-long (5 miles) Cheonggyecheon Stream is a serene haven away from the hectic metropolis through which it flows.

Despite running parallel to some of the city’s busiest streets, the creek is a remarkably quiet space, thanks to its being below street level.

More than 20 bridges, sculptures, willow trees, colourful lighting and fountains give each of its sections a unique character.

Imagine taking a leisurely stroll along it with our gallery:

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
