After we got back in Seoul, we were dropped off at the cable car station for the Namsan Tower. We bid our farewell to Mr. Choi and the driver who have been very nice these past 2 days to us. We got there about an hour or so before sunset, so it was still bright. There was a line for the cable car, but it wasn’t too bad. We purchased our two-way ticket and rode on the cable car.
We found this magazine for tourists with handy maps and recommendations. But of course, those places we went the past couple days. Talk about timing.
And then again, there’s the stairs. I swear there are sooo many stairs in Korea.
The view from up here:
I like Myeong-dong. The area’s filled with shops with bright lights and people bustling here and there. Even though it was a weekday, it’s pretty packed. It definitely felt livelier, more energetic and active here (or Seoul in general as a matter of fact) compared to Seattle.
We picked Wangbijib (왕비집), a Korean BBQ restaurant for our dinner. This place is apparently a pretty well known tourists place. The servers speak Chinese and Japanese (I think), so if you can’t speak Korean, you can speak one of the two languages. They grilled the meat for us too on the table. We were so hungry we ended up ordering more portions. At the end of the night, we were stuffed and happy.
