South Korea: Namsan park & N Seoul Tower

If you’re in Seoul, it’s impossible to escape N Seoul Tower. Almost everywhere you can spot the tower. But, if you want to enjoy a beautiful view of Seoul city it’s a must to visit the 236.7 meter high tower. N Seoul tower is located on top of Namsan mountain (243 meter). I visited Namsan park and intended to take the cable car from there. But while searching I ended up walking the whole 243 meter high mountain instead. What the hell am I!? I was crazy tired, I can tell you that. Thankfully, I was greeted by a splendid view at the top of the mountain.

I reached the tower in time. The sun was already setting, so I had a beautiful sunset covering Seoul with a radiant orange yellow blanket and when night was falling, a beautiful illuminated cityscape. The admission fee was 10,000, which in my opinion is reasonable, especially compared to other cities. On the way back I pretended to be a normal person and took the cable car. If I remember correctly the admission fee was about 6,000 (one-way). All around a very splendid day.

South Korea: Han River

After days that consisted of shopping and sightseeing, I decided to take it easy and spend a day relaxing at Han river.  A lot of people come her to enjoy the beautiful park. I saw many people jogging, cycling, fishing or just taking a relaxing walk. Some passerby caught my eye because their faces were covered with masks and sunglasses. The person I was with told me that some Korean celebrities/Kpop idols visit this area. They’re covered up to protect their privacy. I’m not sure if that’s true. I rather think that they’re just protecting their faces from the bright sunlight.

I brought a few snacks, so I could have a little picknick along the coastline. I just had a  with meat filling inside, some crisps and Binggrae flavored strawberry milk. I actually drunk a lot of those flavored milk drinks.

I wish I could have beautiful relaxing moments like this every day.
