Namsan Seoul Tower

Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워) is located on Namsan Moutain in central Seoul, South Korea.

Many people ride the Namsan cable car up the mountain,  which gives a great view over Seoul, and is really beautiful at night. Then people get off the cable car and walk to the tower. 
The tower has restaurants and gift shops on the ground floor as well.

There's 4 observation decks, and on the 4th one is a restaurant, which actually rotates tih a rate of one revolution every 48 minutes.

You can see the whole city from top, and it has a really great view, and it's therefore really common for couples to go there.

In november 2011, the place had about 2,000 foreign visitors, and they decided to hang padlocks on the Tower fence as a symbol of love as their favorite activity in Seoul.

Han River and the Moonlight Rainbow Fountain

The Han River is located in Seoul, the capital of South Korea, and the river goes right through the center of Seoul. It's also the fouth longest river on the Korean peninsula after the Amnok, Duman  and Nakdong rivers.
On boths sides of the river, there's walkways and bicycle paths. There's lots of restaurants and cafes located on boths sides.

The Banpo Bridge is a bridge that strikes over the Han River, connecting the Seocho and the Yongsan disticts. Banpo Bridge is actually on top of Jamsu Bridge, making it a double bridge. and it's famous for it's colorful bridge fountain. 

The bridge fountain is called Moonlight Rainbow Fountain (달빛무지개 분수), and it's actually the worlds longest bridge fountain. The fountain looks beautiful at night, when the colorful water shoots as  far as 43 meters over the Han River.



Repulic of Korea

- Hi.

안녕하세요, 여러분~
Hellow everybody.

I would like to introduce myself. I'm a girl who felt like she needed to share her love for South Korea, so she decided to make this blog. You may ask why she is talking in 3rd person, but she really has no clue.

Anyway, on this blog she will post things she learns about South Korea. And even though there's probably not going to be many visitors, she'll have fun.

She'll post photos of different places and Korea, and even pictures of snacks or icecream.
She'll probably just post whenever she feels like it.

And she is indeed a Seoul city Sucker.

Thank you for stopping by, she hopes to see you more here. :3
