Did some trail walk to Namsan Tower, also known as N Seoul Tower. Supposed we wanted to take the cable car up. Despite the long queue, we decided to skip the cable car and walk all the way up. It wasn't that bad though, just that you did so much walking for the past few days, and also wearing those thick layers of winter clothing, it kinda drain down your energy faster than you thought. And sweating in winter, not my first time experience.
This is just the beginning... The start point.
It's seriously beautiful up here... So breathtaking....
I don't know why, I just felt the sun was so close. And I stop here to enjoy the view for a bit before continue the walk.
I guess here is one of the best place to have a panorama view of Seoul city. It was really breathtaking. And I went during sunset time, it was the best moment ever, because sunset is just simply beautiful.
Then, we went to Dongdaemun where they have this futuristic architecture with a lots of LED roses. I went there on the first night, I couldn't find the roses. Probably I went there too late, they off the lights? Not quite sure. But there's this garden with all the LED lights, it looks super pretty at night.
So not too far away, this Cheonggyecheon stream flows across a few stations. It was pretty nice to have a river walk.
Besides the famous Gyeongbukgung palace, there are many palaces in Seoul. We also went to Cheokdokgung palace where they have this super huge secret garden. It was a mandatory you need to follow the tour, probably they afraid you may get lost in the garden itself.
It was a 1-2 hour tour(if I'm not mistaken), the tour guide will bring you around the garden which was more than 5km.
You can see the lake already turn to ice.
I wasn't sure where was this Samyetang (Ginseng Chicken Soup) at. But definitely not the famous touristy one... It taste real good. Not too bitter but just awesome.
Then, we also went to the Korean BBQ shop where it was somewhere at the alley for dinner. The shop owners do not know how to speak English. We just ask them to bring whatever it is nice with sign language.
It was a pretty descent Korean BBQ. We were like non stop add on to our order, which was not part of our plan. We wanted to just try it out and then go to some grocery store to get the cheap food to fill our tummy if we weren't full. But it was just worth it :) I can hardly find a good Korean BBQ in KL.
