Namsan Day

by farrah

Namsan 1

What is a trip to South Korea without going to the tallest tower in Seoul, the Namsan Seoul Tower? Every country has one- Tokyo Tower, Eiffel Tower, Baiyoke Tower, Burj Kalifa and ours is probably in Makati. Lol! Seriously though, isn’t it nice to see a view of the city from high up in the sky? I don’t mind staring at it all day. If I could just live on a cloud while watching the tiny people! That’ll be fun!

The N Seoul Tower is a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain at the center of Seoul. From Chungmuro Station, you can simply take either Sunhwan Bus no. 02 or 05. The bus no. 05 is also available at Myeongdong. If you’re not gonna be coming from any of these locations, Google is your best friend.

I got so kilig being here! If you watched Onstyle’s Jessica and Krystal, you’d probably be, too. They’re my favorite!

The way up is already so mesmerizing! I really liked the Sunny but cold weather.

And they were all yellow~

Around the tower is Namsan Park where you can catch a scenic view of the city even just from here while eating at one of the restaurants. The food is a must-try! I had some super good bulgogi, spicy seafood noodles and bibimbap here.

This gift shop has the cutest souvenirs! You better check the stuff out.

The famous locks of love. People would scribble out their love on the locks and throw the keys away. I think there’s too many already. I heard in other countries, love locks have been cut down. Well, not in Seoul. They even have a box where you can leave the keys and they will get rid of it for you for your love to endure (#MayForever) AND to keep this place clean.

A not so discreet way to get close. But it’s just me today.

Tile messages! Cutiee~

Jessica & Krystal <3 I was looking for their tile messages but they obviously took it out ’cause fans might steal them!

Weeny Beeny~

View from Seoul Tower- so high up, everything’s so tiny!

It was apparently Namsan day ’cause next up is the Namsangol Hanok Village which we easily found by the exit 3 and 4 of Chungmuro Station. This small village in Jung-u (central district of Seoul) is literally what the name says, a village of traditional Korean houses and garden. Like Japan, Korea also does an amazing job in maintaining it’s historical buildings.

Namsan 11

You can wander around this village for FREE and it’s one of the most beautiful spots in Seoul! Too bad, I didn’t get enjoy the garden part that much since it was still early spring. *sobs*

Wish to see this during spring or fall! I miss living in a country with 4 seasons. When it’s winter, you get to look forward to spring. After spring, summer comes. Then the leaves start to fall in autumn in preparation for winter and winter means SNOWBOARDING!

What the Joseon era considers as home appliances.

Namsan 27

I somehow felt like I was in a computer game.

Namsan 21

Traditional Korean games which I didn’t try. Not good at these things.

I wonder what they cooked here. Some jigae, I suppose?

Namsan 30

Spot the Seoul Tower!

Namsan 29

Did you enjoy my Namsan Day? Lol! You can schedule 1 day for all these. It’s so easy find them. You’d even still have time to go shopping afterwards! <3 See you again one spring, Namsan!
