I’m back to posting my trip to South Korea! I may have mentioned that my trip this time was to catch up on all the touristy things that I didn’t get to see the last time I went there, and the famed Namsan Tower was one of them.
I’ve been atop some towering bodies in my travels (here’s me in Tokyo, New York & Shanghai), but Korea does have a flair for dramatising their sightseeing spots into romantic getaways. Good thing I was with Ottie eh?
February was still very chilly, so queueing up outside to buy tickets for the cable car (₩ 17,000 / USD $15) which would take us to the tower was quite the experience. Lucky for us, the outdoor section lasted for about 15 minutes.
It was quite a pity that the glass windows weren’t very clean. I didn’t feel quite so inspired as I have other places.
Here’s Ottie in his natural habitat, a surface on which butts rest. These platforms are found interspersed along the deck, forming a cosy corner for people to sit and enjoy the view of Seoul. I liked it about this place.
Not forgetting the love locks that took all of the world by storm. We didn’t get one because we’re a boring old couple:
Finally, a couple of favourite photos from our trip to the tower:
