Namsan Tower

5 July 2015 | Seoul, South Korea —

Danny and I wanted to be spontaneous one Sunday afternoon right after worship service. So, we decided to pay a visit to Namsan Tower or N Seoul Tower, one of Seoul’s tourist attractions. It’s 236.7 meter high and offers a full view of the capital city. Unfortunately, since it was an unplanned trip, we weren’t digital camera-ready with a higher megapixel. Please bear with my cellphone photos.

We took the cable car located at the foot of Namsan mountain to go up to the tower. A ride can cater about 40 people. When we reached the point of disembarkation, there was a flight of stair that welcomed us and a nice city view as well.

Upon arriving at the top, there were many people in groups of families or friends, while others are dating couples. We wanted to visit the teddy bear museum. Instead, there was a trick eye museum. We’ve never heard that the teddy bear museum has been closed for a couple of years already and has transferred to other cities.

So, we decided to visit the observatory at the 3rd floor. On the elevator, a TV screen on the ceiling showed a 10-second animation as if we  were going out of the planet. Honestly, it was corny and just gave me a stiff neck.

That day, the view wasn’t as clear as when we were in 63 building. But, we waited until past 7 at night to see the city lights anyway.

There are two restaurants and a coffee shop located at the tower. So, the visitors may enjoy the panoramic view of Seoul while dining.

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
