Seoul Tower

A panaromic view of Seoul: The N Seoul tower

On a business trip to Seoul recently, I managed to take some time out to visit the most common tourist spot in Seoul – The N Seoul tower. According to Wikipedia approximately 8.4 million visit the N Seoul Tower every year, so it seemed like a good place to go when time is an issue.

Why  is it so popular, you may ask? It is very near the city, it gives a panoramic view of the Seoul, is very convenient if you want to hangout with friends over a (cheap) beer, is usually crowded but as it is spacious you don’t feel very crunched. Our trip to the tower was very peaceful specifically for these reasons.

We were kind of lucky to time the trip there, as we reached there at about 5:30 PM in the evening. It was the right time as we could see the city lighting up.

Buy some beer, grab a seat near the observatory windows and let the time fly by. View from the top is really beautiful. You can see the mountains in the background while the busy city is right at your feet.

The tower changes colors and if you are lucky, with proper lighting you can take some really brilliant snaps.

One of the most interesting parts of the tower is the love-Locks. Make a wish and lock it (literally). Looking at the number of locks, one can safely assume that this tourist spot is mostly frequented by locals. 🙂
