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).

An elevator connects the Seoul Metropolitan near the entrance of Namsan Tunnel Three up to the cable car station.


I believed the above was the remnants of the old city wall.


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.


More love locks.


A wall of love messages.

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