namsan tower

namsan tower

our flight was 12.35am. so wife booked one extra night on 13.11.2016,.

this very important as we want to have a room to return to, to bathe etc before leaving for the airport around 9pm. the extra night just S$90/night, & with cleaning & admin charges total about S$495 for 4 nights.

so after Sam Cheong Dong 삼청동 & Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을), we took the subway to myeongdong station, visited lotte world department store, and walked around myeongdong a bit.

we forgot to factor in the crowd & queue & also that it took a while (15mins) to walk to the cable car station.

anyhow we were at the cable car station almost 5pm and the queue took about 1.5hrs. and the cable car ride was just 3mins! haha!

so we started with some evening scene, but basically by the time we entered the cable car ride, it was dark already.

it was peace & tranquillity…

the N Seoul Tower N서울타워 was like a lit beacon, luminous in the dark…

love locks

we took a short stroll around the tope of namsan…

and walked over to look at the love locks…

love locks

a Korean invention??

put up a lock & throw away the key….saw these in many Korean tv dramas of yesteryears…

& only recently, we discovered similar replicas of love locks on cheung chau island in hong kong.

I supposed it can be a meaningful personal chapter….

seeing it through the swaying tree branches…

we were tired after being out the whole day, so we did not stay long & was quite happy to take the cable car down & looking forward to a nice dinner before packing up to leave for the airport.
