Seoul, South Korea —
Bugaksan, the highest among the mountains encompassing the country’s capital city, is situated in the north part.
It was late Sunday afternoon when we visited 북악스카이 팔각정 (Bugak Skyway Pavilion) . So, it was quite crowded and the sun was still up. We wanted to see the city night lights thus, we killed the time by dining at a restaurant in the area. We thought we could get a better view but, we were wrong. While the sun was going down and because of the window tint, we could barely see outside.
Nevertheless, we enjoyed our dinner. We had a bowl of cream and mushroom soup and a whole steak pizza. So far, it was our 3rd and the best steak we had since we arrived.
When we finished our dinner, we loitered some more to view the city night lights. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get a spectacular photo. Here is our best shot:
In general, it is a good place to hang out and enjoy the cool air.
