Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워)


Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워)

Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워) was one of the last places that I visited when I was in South Korea. Naturally, I didn't have much energy left especially after I hurt my leg in Busan. By the way, this is not the end of my endless posts about my trip to South Korea. I still have few more. lol. I just need to get rid of anything Seoul first :p

My rough itinerary looked like this; Seoul → Busan → Incheon → Jeju → Seoul. And just so you know, orang yang tak buat proper research and planning je route dia macam ni. I wasted so much money and time being an idiot and lazy me T^T

The weather was at its best when I went to the Namsan Seoul Tower. It was so bright and the skies were so blue, though it get quite hot at the same time. #iamaputerililin I personally think that I got some of the best pictures of my South Korea trip on this day!



Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워)
I took a bus to get to Namsan Seoul Tower but little did I know that I had to hike for a bit once I get off at the nearest bus stop. Haha. Talk about another lame. It was quite a short hike but it was too steep for my liking. After all, my leg was hurt, no? I obviously huffed and puffed to my way up. Thankfully, the road was shady thanks to the trees. Otherwise, I'll become such a mess because I felt like my skin was burning up when I was on my way up.

Didn't go up the Namsan Seoul Tower because I was a cheapskate. Also, because I was not sure and was not curious about what kind of view that I'll get once I'm up there. Additionally, I heard that the best time to go up the tower is at night. So, I decided to pass.

Love locks at the Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워)

Instead, I went to see the ever famous love locks area. OMG! So many love locks. I think they had to remove some due to fire safety. Pretty sure I read something along those lines. Didn't spend too much time here as well because there's only so much love locks that I can see. Haha. Wanted to take pictures at the photo zones but everyone was so busy with their significant others so I passed again. #nasiborangsingle



Pavilion at the Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워)
Then, I decided to sit around near the pavilion. I think there was a significant history behind this pavilion but being lazy that I am, I didn't even bother to read the whole thing. All I know was Cha Tae Hyun was here on one of the episodes of 2 Days 1 Night. #thingsidoforchataehyun

Seoul View from Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워)

After that, I managed to sneak around the observation platform to take a peak of Seoul from above. It wasn't as vast as what I've seen from Haneul Park (하늘공원) but it is what it is. I think it'll look super pretty at night with neon light and stuff.

I think I left the Namsan Seoul Tower after an hour-ish because I pretty much get the gist of the place and I wanted to go to few other places after that. Overall, I'm really glad that I decided to visit Namsan Seoul Tower on that particular day. Wouldn't mind to come again if I get another chance :)

    1. Kita sebenarnya baru tahu yang boleh nampak Namsan Seoul Tower ni dari Myeongdong lepas 2 minggu lebih dekat Korea. Almaklumlah, tiap kali pergi Myeongdong, menonong je terus pergi shopping street dia. Tak pandang kiri kanan. Hahaha.

      Dia bukan hike yang gila-gila, kak Siti. Less than 10-15 minutes kalau tak silap. Cuma sebab dia curam tu yang macam semput sikit tu.

    4. Kak Siti, Seongsan Ilchulbong tu extreme sangat even for me. Almaklumlah couch potato through and through. Tapi, Namsan tak macam tu. Dia tak extreme tapi agak curam. Macam saya, saya tak daki dari bawah pun. Saya daki dari bus stop. Kalau daki dari bawah, memang penat gila la T^T

    5. Kak Sally, samalah kita. More to nak jimat duit and I don't want to wait in long lines sebab busy kan. Kita kan sebenarnya sampai sekarang tak tahu dekat mana orang naik cable car tu. Tak nampak pun tempat nak ambil cable car masa dekat Namsan Tower tu. Tak tahulah kenapa. Tak terbuka kot mata. Hahaha
