Every year, during the Buddha’s Birthday holiday in May, there is a Lantern Festival in Seoul where bright, colorful handmade paper lanterns decorate the Cheonggyecheon (Stream). 2015 marks my first year seeing this lovely display in person. I have seen pictures online for several years of other people enjoying this experience, and this was the first year that I was able to see everything for myself. The large floating lanterns were an amazing site, and I suggest that everyone take some time to go visit the Cheonggyecheon (Stream) during this event. I would recommend taking a taxi there to make sure you are dropped at the right location. Show your taxi driver pictures of the Lantern Festival, and he or she should drive you straight to the right area. You can also check the website below for other directions and other lantern making activities. Have fun!!!! 😉 😉 😊 ☺
