Namsan Tower

Last Friday I went to Namsan Tower, the highest point in Seoul. A cable car takes you up to an outdoor area below the tower, then if you want to go even higher you can buy a ticket for the elevator that takes you inside the tower.

Below the tower, there is an area where couples sign locks and attach them to a fence. There were so many locks! It was really neat.

Then I went up the elevator inside the tower. It’s the best way to see Seoul from high in the sky. IMG_4401 IMG_4427 IMG_4422 Namsan Tower is really mostly a touristy place, but still lots of fun and gives you opportunities to take lots of pictures! It really is a beautiful place. IMG_4392IMG_4435

    I always love it when I see that you have a new blog post, Sophie. Fantastic stories and photos! The part about the locks was great – I’ve never heard of that.
