On the way up to Namsan Tower

Around Seoul in 6 days: Namsan Tower

After gaining my beauty sleep… Not so beauty actually because I can’t sleep due to changes of weather. How do I call that? Weather shock? Hehe.. You know Malaysia is really hot right now but in korea, it can be 13 Celsius and above. It’s freezinggggg! Especially on late evening until the next morning even though it’s in spring season.

First things first, wake up in the morning, brush my teeth, taking my bath…. bla bla bla… It’s not the main point actually. Wakaka. Just kidding. Alright! Today we will heading to Namsan Tower early in the morning. Hoorayy! When we first arrived at Namsan Park… Whoa! The cherry blossom are blooming all over the park. I can see the cherry blossom fully bloom all over the road heading to Namsan Tower. Excited! Woohoo! We run towards the tree and took many pictures as we can.

SubahanAllah! It’s really beautiful. Feels just like heaven. You can see how beautiful the cherry blossom are by seeing the pictures below.

Remember that most korean drama shooting location is located in this area? If you are the fanatic fans of korean drama just like me you will noticed. Hehehe…

Finally arrived after tired on climbing the hills. I feels like I want to crawl besides of climbing. I’ve lost all of my energy there. Really! Most of Korea geographical area is full of hills to climb for. Fuhhh! Namsan Tower is full of locks with the wish on it. Mostly love wishes. I don’t have enough time to explore the tower. Being there would be great for me.
