Namsan Tower, Namdaemun Market and Myeong-Dong
Beneath is a #throwback repost from my old blog.
There is absolutely a lot for me to blog about, and I took some time off from going anywhere today just so that I could blog my visits. My feet are swollen from all the walking, and it rained today (Monday 21st) . Supposedly the weather forecast predicts snow or rain, and it obviously rained..all day, setting me in a mood to not go anywhere and just sit tight in my room.
However, yesterday was a sunny Sunday and together with a group of classmates, went to the Southern part of Seoul towards Namsan Tower, Namdaemun Market and towards the glitzy Myeong-Dong.
Declare your love at Namsan Tower!!
Err, yeah…you read that right. Namsan tower is more than just a place for you to enjoy the view. Many, many “cute” couples come here to “lock-up” their hearts away with pad-locks and hang them along an already extensive wall of love padlocks, like the ones I have seen in Florence and Amsterdam. The ride up to Namsan was from Seoul Station Metro and we took the taxi (around KWR 6,000) to the cable-car station. It was really hard going around not knowing proper Korean language because the older generation does not know even the littlest korean. Thankfully we all watch K-drama , so we were able to bantai a few phrases.
