June 28, 2016 Namsan Mountain


If you’ve travelled to certain cities around the world, it’s a fair bet that you’ve encountered the romantic gesture of leaving padlocks on bridges and iron fences. Young and old lovers engrave their names onto a padlock and fasten them to render their unbreakable bond for all of eternity. South Korea, Seoul particularly, made its way to have this practice, too.

Located on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul is N Seoul Tower. You’d perch atop an observation deck overlooking the most-breathtaking 360 view of Seoul. Upon it, lies what they call “The Locks of Love”. You’ll find millions of colorful padlocks–inscribed by pen, some with pictures, doodles, and stickers.

Taking in this short experience and heart-felt emotions, I couldn’t help but find a dream in it all. Mababaw lang ako and these things for me are enough to be called impressive.

In case you’re interested, the entrance fee is at KRW 10,000 for adults and KRW 8,000 for the children and elderly.

Have you been to N Seoul Tower and Locks of Love as well? Tell me about your experience! :)
