N Seoul Tower
N Seoul Tower, commonly known as Namsan Tower is located in Namsan Mountain. It is an observatory deck overlooking Seoul, and is house to the iconic love locks bridge in Seoul. Today, the love locks bridge is a tourist icon and many travel up Namsan Mountain to get a picture of not only the view from Seoul Tower, but of the love locks bridge!
I always make it a point to visit similar observatory decks when we travel, just to have a quick overview of the city, and to tick off the tourist checklist.
To get to Namsan Tower, we took bus 02 from Chungmuro Station, exit 2. The journey up cost us 1,200 won. Check here for other locations to board the bus. It is a short walking distance from our AirBnB, very convenient.
But I think the journey really started for me when we alighted. Just look at the following image… …
We had to endure a really, really, really steep slope. You probably can’t see the end of this slope in my picture. So, we decided to look for a short-cut up the observatory deck. Thankfully, there is a shopping mall – Seoul Tower Plaza.
Oh, I spy the lift! Or so I thought. No…another flight of stairs.
There’s just a whole lot of climbing.
And arrived to this. Hooray!
