[Seoul Series] Day 4: N Seoul Tower

IMG_1595

If you’re a fan of Korean dramas like me, you’ll easily recognize N Seoul Tower. It is a complex atop the Namsan Mountain and the panoramic view of Seoul and surrounding areas makes it a great filming location. But the N Seoul Tower is not just a tourist spot because it still serves as a transmission tower. In fact, about 48% of the national audio population watches broadcasting through N Seoul Tower. A visit to Seoul won’t definitely be complete without dropping by N Seoul Tower which is a proud landmark of Seoul.

Here are the photos I took in March of 2012. Enjoy!

We went to N Seoul Tower by taxi and just an FYI, taxis are not allowed to go up to the tower. We were dropped off all the way down to where you’ll see the yellow bus at the top portion of the photo. The photo was taken from the observatory so you can just imagine how far and uphill we had to walk just to reach the base of the tower.
