Seoullo7017 The transformation of an old Seoul overpass into a vibrant sky-high walkway has helped connect the east of the city to the west, previously cut off by the Seoul Station railway tracks. Named Seoullo7017, the Highline-like path draws visitors not just out of convenience, but also with its 24,000 plants that line the one-kilometer strip, stylish Korean restaurants and cafés, a pocket-sized gallery, daily live music and kids’ entertainment.
