N SEOUL TOWER or the NAMSAN TOWER is best visited and seen during night time. It allows you to have a 360 view of Seoul's nightscape.

Earlier this year, I was able to visit Korea with my family. Thankfully, I got to unwind with all the activities we did. One of the best places we visited was the NAMSAN TOWER or better known as the SEOUL TOWER.

There are two ways to get there. First, to get dropped off and walk for a few minutes up a semi-steep paved road. No cars are allowed up unless it is for the disabled or for special cases. 
Second, what we did. Ride a cable car up! Less walk!
 Better to go on non-peak hours so as to avoid the queue.

Once you get to the top, you could see how tall it is.
You enter through the basement and line up for tickets to ride the super duper fast elevator.
The wait isn't that long and the line has some informative tidbits around. You could either go to 2 different restaurants or to the observation deck which we did.
Don't forget to checkout the animations inside the elevator. Quite amusing.
Once you are up there, you can't help but enjoy the view.
and of course get mandatory shots with the family.
Before you go back to the ground floor, take the staircase down one level and go to the SKY RESTROOM.

It has an incredible view while you do the deed.
Don't forget to wash your hands though.

 After everything, it was a nice experience to ride the cable car up and check out the night view, Take note! There are still things to do.
 Stores and restaurant at found on the ground level. They even have a TEDDY BEAR MUSEUM you can visit. They also got the LOVE PADLOCK area. Here, you write down some love promises on a lock and link it with lots and lots of locks.  
 don't mind the silly person on my right...

and do what I did. Take a sit on a HEART CHAIR. It is said to make you be closer to the one you love or in my case...Destroy a bench.

  1. Did you go with a travel agency / tour guide? I heard it's hard to roam around not having someone with you who knows who to speak in Korean. I'm planning to go there late next year! :)

  2. Hey Roch,,, it is better to go on a tour because it is difficult to go around the place.... and it is quite hard to talk to the locals. Not everyone can speak english ^_^ Usually tours are also all in. Food transpo and even the tix are all in. So it is easier,. ^_^
