Let's GO, Seoul●Busan! 首爾●釜山趴趴走!

안녕하세요 여러분! \^0^/
Annyeonghaseyo, everyone!

Day 2 is coming to an end.
Keep up with us! :D

Hope you enjoy reading! :)


September 10, 2016 (Saturday)

When I'm looking back our footprints, then I realized we actually went to so many places in one day!
Maybe that's when my body finally couldn't stand, and got sick for the next few days...

p/s: please try to space out your schedule and not to get sick during holiday trip...

After exiting from Myeongdong Station, we walked for about 15-20min following the street of the right side of Pacific Hotel in order to reach the boarding place for cable car.

You should be able to spot a commemorative monument (above) just right beside Namsam Orumi, a slanted elevator connecting Namsam Tunnel 3 to Namsam cable car. It takes around 2 mins to reach the cable car station.

**how to get to this location : take metro/subway to Myeongdong (424), Exit 3**

The price for cable car ride as follow:

Since we are thinking of taking a walk down Namsan Park after that, so we bought adult one-way ticket, which costs KRW6,000 per person.

There were many people that day, and we waited for almost an hour to get ourselves on cable car.
Here the cable car comes...

Up up we go!
The cable car ride took us like around 5 mins.
Soon then we realized we arrived at N Seoul Tower.

The observatory admission fee as follow:

Since we got bundle offer for purchasing N Seoul Tower admission ticket fee together with Nanta Show ticket, so I don't know the actual price we got for the Observatory Admission.
(Nanta Show ticket + N Seoul Tower admission ticket = KRW 45,000)

First thing first, we quickly check out the Observatory Tower as we are afraid we are behind time.

But honestly, there is pretty nothing much to see inside the observatory tower.
Just the usual souvenir and gift shops you would expect in any other observatory tower,
and some restaurants with good mountain view.

These should be the view y'all familiar with.
Trees and fences decorated with colorful padlocks.
And benches which the middle part slopes inwards.

Our mission was to find EXO's padlock.......
Did we manage to find them?
Of course NO XD
My dear, that's not even possible!

This is definitely a place for couples.
Such a lovely spot.
Maybe I will consider to come again with my partner (?),
if there is one HAHA

Night is coming.
We wished to stay a bit longer, but we have a show to catch tonight.
Let's move on.

There are staircases built all the way down to the hill.
If you are not ready for lots of walking, please take the cable car instead.

While we are expecting something surprising along the way down,
it's a bit disappointing 'cause there is pretty nothing much.
Just focus and enjoy the walk!

And we took Namsam Orumi down to Namsan Tunnel 3, walked backwards from where we started.
Back to Myeongdong, we need to fill our stomach with lots of foods now.

I don't think I need to introduce much about Myeongdong now,
since many would have know about how fascinating and happening this town is.

Is that even 32 cm ??? The ice-cream part......

Our show starts at 8PM.
The theater hall is just right beside the biggest Skin Food outlet in Myeongdong.
But as your see there are more than 3 Skin Food outlets in Myeongdong,
it takes time to get to the right direction.
(try imagine how big is Myeongdong Night Market)

Whew, finally we got in just right in time.

For those who don't know what is Nanta Show, here's a glimpse of it...which I found it on YouTube

Apparently these live shows are receiving good comments over the time
and many locals and even tourists came all the way to watch these shows.

I never been to any live concert as of now.
Nevertheless, I felt as excited as going for a concert.

There were many elements in the show.
There is a story line with only 5 characters.
They will dance and perform numerous talents throughout the show.
They don't require much script. If necessary, it would be simple English.

The show we watched was Cooking Nanta.
So the background of the story is a team of chefs struggling with kitchen-related issues.
Interesting part is, although it seemed childish and ridiculous at first, I soon find it very entertaining and started to flow with the performance.

We are not allowed to take any picture nor recording throughout the show.
Hence this was taken after the show.

It is grateful to learn that Koreans do appreciate cultural and arts, as compared to our country.
There are people making a living with arts performance.
And people coming in to buy ticket and watch these performance.
It may be some families weekend activities.

Is it the difference between developed country and developing country?
I shall leave the question in vast.


Thank you and hope you enjoy reading :)
Please look forward to the next post!
