Namsam Tower, also known officially as N-Seoul Tower, is a 236 metre tall communications tower in Seoul, South Korea. There are a lot of tourist attractions around the base. One of the popular things to see, and participate in, are the love locks. Visitors can purchase a lock set (lock, keys, pen) for ₩10,000 and lock in their love for eternity 🧀.
The first time we visited in February 2017, we walked up the mountain and it was an exhausting 20 minutes hahaha. When I visited in April 2019 with my family, we opted for the cable car ride. It was very slow but it saved a lot of energy for everyone.
Look at all the love locks! ❤️
Unlike Paris and New York, Seoul does not remove any locks and have built metal hearts and fences so more visitors can put their locks up. We put a lock up in 2017 HERE and I tried looking for it during my second visit but after 2 years of weathering, it was so hard to find without an exact location lol. An elderly couple noticed my search and tried to help me - thank you for your kindness, cuties!
These benches were designed to look like a heart and when couples sit on it, they're pushed closer together. How romantic is Seoul? *heart swoons*
Another thing we love about exploring a new city is capturing a birds eye view of the scenery. Namsam tower is a great place to soak in the views and appreciate the little moments of life.
Inside the tower, there are museums, cafes, game centres and photo ops to explore. In 2017, there was a pixar museum with a marvel section where we could play with Thor's hammer and dress up as Iron Man. You could easily spend an entire day at Namsam Tower.
If we were to visit Seoul again, we would definitely visit Namsam again. There's always something different to do each time.
Thanks for browsing through. 감사합니다
