The Skies and Seas of 63 Building

Happy March, everyone!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. It’s mainly because I finally reached my 3GB storage limit on WordPress, so I had to find another way to still be able to share all my photos with you. Kind of a pain…but I’ll save that for perhaps another blog post.

Now, to the 63 Building. It’s basically a skyscraper across the Han River that has an observation deck on the 60th floor with some great, 360-degree views of Seoul. It has a few other hidden gems, too. For example, the observation deck doubles as an art gallery called “63 Sky Art.” They’re currently exhibiting “Cinderella,” (through Mar. 22), which is split into four parts or themes: Mouse, Pumpkin, Clock and Shoes. Pretty interesting, if you like art at all. 🙂 There’s a nice cafe on that floor if you want to sit and enjoy the views for a while.

We started with a tasty (and fancy) dinner at Top Cloud Restaurant, which is located on the 33rd floor of the very modern and cool-looking Jongno Tower. They have a buffet option, or regular dining option. We picked dining, which apparently consists of a French cuisine. (They also had live music.) The food was “different,” but tasty like I said. My first time eating oyster…ah! Our starters also included lobster carpaccio (aka raw) and some other seafood, was hard to tell what was what on the plate. The meal was great, the views were amazing and Will surprised me with chocolate cake. He knows me.

From there, Will took me for a ride on the Namsan Cable Car, which runs from the base of Mt. Namsan to the base of N Seoul Tower. Continue reading Where to go for spectacular views of Seoul
