Day 7 of 9
There are plenty of reasons why you should check out the N Seoul Tower (Namsan tower) As for me, thanks to Boys Over Flowers (Lee Min Ho KDrama) as I fell in love with this romantic place long before I set foot in it. And I will discuss each reason below for your reference. The N Seoul Tower sits at the top of Namsan Mountain making it the highest point in Seoul. This is a must for those whose hoping to get a clear shot of Seoul’s Skyline and offers unobstructed and panoramic view of Seoul.
How to Get to Namsan Tower?
Namsan Tower is accessible by bus, cable car and on foot, since we’re already in Myeongdong, we just walked towards the Namsan Oreumi Elevator which led us to the cable car station. I think this is the best way to get to N Seoul Tower aside from its free, riding the clear box made of glass and steel is already a unique experience.
By Train & Cable Car Line 4 Myeongdong Station Exit 3 and walk for 10-15 minutes to access the cable car (Updated)
By Seoul City Tour Bus Departure place at in front of Donghwa Duty Free from 0900-2100 at 30 minutes interval.
By Bus Namsan Shuttle Bus 2, 3 and 5. (Updated)
TRAVEL 101 : Best time to visit around 4pm onwards so you get to see both daylight, the golden hour and at night when pretty Seoul lights up.
Dinner Date at The Place
Aside from the view, the tower features the lovers padlock, teddy bear museum, a gift shop and a variety of dining options. We chose an Italian restaurant called The Place which serves pizza, pasta and wines.
A Promise for Endless Love – Lovers hold love locks here as a token of eternal love. It becomes popular after being featured through MBC korean drama and from then on, thousands of lovers flock in to perform the commitment ritual.
These padlocks can be bought at the souvenir shop and is available in various design and colors plus it comes in different sizes. Some even brought their own padlock.
OMG, this is the best Valentine date so far as we get to do something beyond the usual – the padlock thingy. We also visited the teddy bear museum and I’ll be posting another blog post for that alone. Anyways, till my next post.
