N Seoul Tower: Love in the Heights

This symbolic building of Seoul has become one of the most popular locations for couples in the city. Apart from the spectacular view from the top, there are some points where people can leave their demonstrations of love.

When you arrive at the N Seoul Tower base platform, you can see several points where couples in love left their “love locks” affixed to the fence surrounding the tower or to several fake trees that the management had put up there. These locks are supposed to symbolize eternal love among couples.

To reach the top of the tower you have to get on an elevator. During the short ride, you can enjoy some videos on the ceiling screen. At the top observatory, you can enjoy fantastic views of the city and the surrounding areas. In the souvenir shop, you can buy chain locks with pink and red heart-shaped ribbons to put on the locks. There are also square bricks to write messages and stick photos on. Near the souvenir shop, you’ll find a large wall full of these bricks with love messages.

At night, the tower is illuminated with multicolored lights and digital projections so the next time I visit Seoul, I have to go there at night.
