N Seoul Tower at Namsam, Seoul

A must visit place in South Korea

Every famous city has a Tower....KL we have KL Tower, Penang we have Komtar, Malacca we have Manara Tamingsari, Taiwan has Taipei 101 Tower, London has Big Ben...the list can go on and on.....

Hence Seoul has their very own Tower too, and it's call N Seoul Tower

So the best way to go there, it's to take a bus ride just like us!

After around 20 minutes ride from the city centre...and walaaa!
N Seoul Tower

After we got there...we need to take slow walk up the hill...the walk wasn't that bad, cause the weather was kinda nice... =)

Just so you know, N Seoul Tower is "The Geographical Center of Seoul"
Just so you know.....
N Seoul Tower is a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain, central Seoul, South Korea. Built in 1969, at a cost of approximately $2.5 million, and opened to the public in 1980, the tower has been a symbol of Seoul and measures 236.7 m (777 ft) in height (from the base) and tops out at 479.7 m (1,574 ft) above sea level. It has also been known as the Namsan Tower or Seoul Tower. After the tower's original owner merged with the CJ Corporation, it was renamed the N Seoul Tower (official name CJ Seoul Tower).

Many visitors ride the Namsan cable car up the mountain, and then walk to the tower. The tower features a gift shop and restaurants on the ground floor. Visitors may go up the tower for a fee. There are four observation decks (the 4th observation deck, which is the revolving restaurant, rotates at a rate of one revolution every 48 minutes), as well as gift shops and two restaurants. Most of the city of Seoul can be seen from the top. Close to N Seoul Tower is a second lattice transmission tower.

I dunno what is this, but it looks interesting...haha

if you're lazy to walk down after you're done visiting the area.... take the cable car!

sending a letter all the way up at the Tower is simply an unique idea
