Don't Hesitate, Just Come: Namsan Seoul Tower


On New Year’s Day in Korea, I went to Namsan Seoul Tower. Usually I never go to a place that is near me, but when I started shooting with films, I started to go around, place to place, and while Namsan Seoul Tower should have been the first place I visited, I went there last instead. This is Namsan with multi-exposures, enjoy! :)

If it’s nearby, you don’t really want to go there, and Namsan Seoul Tower was a place that I didn’t actually thought of visiting. So on New Year’s Day in Korea, I went there (actually I went there again since I lost some of my photos from extreme light leaks), and it was another great day to take pictures.

Going up was a great exercise of course, but if you have acrophobia, and weak legs, I don’t recommend this way since the stairs are steep, and there is a long way up. If you want to see Namsan Seoul Tower the easy way, I recommend that you ride the cable car. With the cable car, the trip will only take 3 to 5 minutes but if you’re going to walk, it’ll take 15 to 20 minutes to reach Namsan Seoul Tower.

After getting some air, I was refreshed and I went to the famous observation deck, which is decorated with hundreds or thousands of couples’ locks. Since it’s blocking the view, it’s going to be cleared out soon, but luckily, I was able to see them and take pictures.

The locks of promises.

Since it was a holiday, I didn’t expect a huge crowd, but there was a lot of people even though it was extremely cold.

When you have some time, it’s a great place to go to and make precious memories of. Thank you for reading. :)
