The awesome thing about Seoul is there’s always so much to do; since Chance has been here, I’ve gotten into the habit of spending my weekends meandering around the busy, bustling city with him and exploring all of what it has to offer.
N Seoul Tower: During his second weekend here in South Korea, Chance and I made a visit to Namsan to climb the top of N Seoul Tower. “Iconic as kimchi,” N Seoul Tower is one of the best places to see panoramic views of South Korea’s capitol city. Once we reached the top of the tower after a long and tiring hike, we found out that N Seoul Tower is a popular date spot: couples come not only to see the panoramic views, but to have romantic dinners and profess their love on the inside walls of the tower with personalized “love tiles.” With its romantic reputation, N Seoul Tower ended up being the perfect place for Chance and I to spend the afternoon alone together.
Everland: For some reason, I never would have guessed South Korea would have their own version of Disneyland, but they do, and it’s amazing! Everland is Korea’s ginormous, outdoor amusement park complete with thrilling rides, expensive yet delicious food, and employees running around in endearing character suits. Chance and I did Everland double date-style and went with my friends, Ashley and Summit, who happen to be Everland veterans: They drove us there in the hour and a half long traffic, showed us the sights, and took ridiculous amounts of pictures for us. Along with being fun, Everland is also overwhelmingly big and crowded, so I’m glad we had some veterans to guide us around and prevent us from getting lost.
Another fun-filled weekend here for the two of us. N Seoul Tower and Everland are definitely two of my top favorite places I’ve seen here in South Korea so far.
