Seoul-o (solo) Winter trip: Hangan River/Seoul Marina & Namsan Park/N Seoul Tower

IMG_2319

The Hangan River is a natural symbol that runs through the center city of Seoul. It flows from Gangwon-do towards Chungcheongbuk-do, Gyeonggi-do, through Seoul and continues on to the Yellow Sea. There are several activities that can be enjoyed when you’re at Han River.

In my case, I visited Seoul Marina which was located in Yeouido-dong, it was my last day in Seoul and I would like to see Han River and get away from the crowded and busy streets of Seoul.

Self-timer shot lol

It was – degrees that morning and so I decided to walk around the park, sat down and admired the picturesque view of the Han River. It made me reminisce all the kdrama’s I’ve watched that was shot at Han River. It felt so romantic (yes, even if I’m sitting alone lol). I also walked around Yeouido before heading back to Chungjeongno.

I wanted to visit this at night so I can enjoy the city lights of Seoul. There are actually 2 options to reach the top of Namsan Seoul Tower 1) Is to take the cable car and 2) Take a 20 to 30 minutes walk at Namsan Park going up which I did. I had fun walking up while enjoying Seoul’s city lights. It was breathtaking even I haven’t reached the top yet. I even stopped several times because 1) I am too tired from walking up the stairs of Namsan Park but since it was – degrees that evening, I wasn’t even sweating (yay!) 2) To take photos of Seoul’s city light (I’m that girl who’s in love with skylines and city lights).
