N SEOUL TOWER

After settling down at Boa Guesthouse, (lunch, prayer, etc), we headed to our first destination in Seoul, the N Seoul Tower. We took the green line (from Hongik University; exit 4) to Seoul Station and change to Myeongdong (blue line). Seoul Station ni besar, penat nak jln for transfer to other line. Kalau nak senang, lajak aja ke Dongdaemun History n Cultural Park dan baru tukar ke Myeongdong (1050 won and 450 won for children). 

Just like KL Central, only bigger!
I'd read in many blogs and articles about climbing up the hill to reach N Seoul Tower. So, basically, i had prepared physically and mentally for the climb..he..he.. My kids had no problems at all as their adrenalin rush was at its maximum level.
this way to Namsan Park
Start our journey from the
Pacific Hotel. Tngk tu, ramai dah
ready nak memanjat.

Melalui lorong2 kedai. Still landai lagik...

Stopped by at this kiosk to buy some drinks
before climbing the steps.

Bila nampak kedai tayar Hankook ni, dah dekat dah dngn cable car
That's the station
8000 won for a return ticket. The pink tickets were for children;
half the price of the adults' tickets
Sempat lagik berposing
ngan atok mana ntah...

While waiting for the cable car






















The Q for the cable car was not very long. We had to wait for about 5 minutes for the cable car to arrive.

View captured from the cable car. 
At last, we arrived at the peak!
Teddy bear muzeum yg to me, not very interesting. If the one at Sokcho tu,
ok lah kalau nak masuk. Yg ni, nk skip pon x pa.

Ada nyanyian lagu2 traditional Korea.
Ramai jugak yg tengok including us. Even though we didn't understand
the lyrics but we tried to enjoy the music. Nice! And the girl
could really sing well.

One of the attractions here; Padlock trees aka love padlocks
Anyway, if u wanna read about the origin of love padlocks, feel free to click here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_padlocks

More padlocks...Hai, untungla peniaga padlock kat sini...
View from N Terrace. Mcm jerebu pon ada...

Time to get down...
Masa lepas turun dari Namsan Tower tu, suddenly we spotted this elevator/trolley which could bring us down without walking. Alamak, kalau tahu dari awal, x payah susah payah buang lemak menapak panjat bukit... Adoii...So, in a few seconds, we were already downhill.


Ni dia rupa trolley tu. Mula2 takut nak naik, manalah
tahu hanya untuk pekerja ajaka...tp lepas kami siasat2 dan perhati2,
semua umat naik aja....so, kami pon naik jugakla...
It was nearly 8 at that time. We just decided to look around at the hoehyeon underground shopping centre. sama mcm yg kat Namdaemon cuma yg ni bwh tanah.

Myengdong cultural market
Oh ya... another info. at the airport, we bought t-money cards for our stay here in Seoul. Besides some discounts, it's more convenient than having to Q all the time when u wanna buy subway tickets.

Top: T-money cards . children's fare is charged half the price of adults.
Below: This is where I bought the t-money at the airport.  But beware, masa kami
 pulangkan kad ni waktu nk balik, ada sign mengatakan yg T-Money cards were
Sold out... 
Location 7e ni dkt je dngn arrival terminal. Keluar aja dr pintu ketibaan tu, jln ke kiri. Leps tu, ikot ja sign airport railroad (AREX). U'll be anywhere in seoul in no time.  Easy weesy...!

K, guys. Time to pen off. To be cont. Byee!

*Expenses for this journey:

Subway: KRW 2100 (return)
Cable Car: KRW 8000 (return)
Total: KRW 10100 @ RM 30
