South Korea Day 1: Namsan Tower and Locks of Love

by - Sunday, May 29, 2016

Our flight from Manila to Seoul was 7:10 am to 12:30 pm via AirAsia Philippines. I never experienced any problem with them and hopefully we will ride again with them soon. I will post our experience on a separate post. 😊 

Our South Korea Day 1 trip was a very short but a memorable one. Yes, because we started our trip as late as 4 pm. Right after we reached our place in Myeong-dong, we met with our high school schoolmate Karla. We miss you Karla! Hope to see you again soon! 😊 

We told her what’s our first itinerary: Namsan Tower!!! Wooh! I first saw this when I watched Boys Over Flowers and then the next one was My Love from the Stars. I’m very meticulous when it comes to itinerary and I make sure that I’ll research it first before I go there. I chose this itinerary because I believe that sunset to night time is the best time to go there. (Based on what I saw on the KDramas! Hehe. :)

From our place in Myeong-dong, we walked going to the Namsan Cable Car Station. From Exit #3 of Myeong-dong, walk straight to the left of Pacific Hotel. Just go straight ahead. Warning: You will feel very exhausted when you reached the Namsan Cable Car Station because it’s a long walk uphill. So be ready. 😊 

I purchased a group of two roundtrip tickets going to Namsan Tower. It costs KRW 17,000. 

After reaching the other station uphill, we roamed around to see the famous, Namsan Tower’s Love of Locks. 

Unfortunately, we didn’t put any lock(s) here because I want to put locks with my special someone soon. 😊

We first experienced freezing 0 °C after 20 years!!! Yes, how long was that. We first experienced it when we was very young way back 1996. 😊 

After the freezing experience at Namsan Tower, we went back to Myeong-dong and tried our first Traditional Korean dinner experience. I’ll post this on my next article. 😊 

How about you? Have you been to Namsan Tower? Share you experience.
