Seoul Day 4: Namsam


After having lunch at Gwangjang Market, we took the subway to Namsan. With the height of 860 feet, it’s a great place to take in the view of downtown Seoul’s skyline.

We took the cable car ride up to Namsan. Round trip for two was KRW16,000 (CAD16).

The N Seoul Tower; a communication and observation tower sits on top of Namsan. It is the highest point in Seoul. There is a restaurant on the observation tower but we were not that hungry yet. So, we did not go for that.

Namsan is a popular location for love locks.

We just sat down to enjoy the breeze and the view of the city.
