Now, here's the interesting part of this post. Admission to the "Skydeck" (the 60th floor) requires 7000w per person. We got there around 10:30pm and I tried negotiating with the two employees about whether or not there are any discounts for English Teachers (fat chance). I told her we were from Canada but she just laughed in my face and said, "28,000w for four people please." So, we started gathering our money and the next thing you know, one of the employees directs us towards the elevators--she let us in for free! We were shocked and amazed. Free computer chairs on the street and now this. Could the day get any better?
Alright, here are the pictures already!
This was taken on our way to the 63 Building. We got off at the Yeouinaru subway station (line 5, purple) and walked 10 minutes (that is Seoul Tower in the distance--you knew that already, right?):
Here's a picture of the 63 Building at night (it's the one of the left):
The hallway to the elevators. There's also an IMAX theater, Sea World, Restaurant and a variety of other stores located at the 63 Building:
One more of the hallway (Ooooh...what pretty colors!):
Before heading up to the top, how about a snack? This was our first time trying samgak kimbap, (Korean sushi). The hardest part about this snack is removing the plastic wrapper and keeping the seaweed intact (we failed miserably):
The 63 Skydeck level (my ears popped multiple times to get up here):
Here's a nice shot of Seoul at night (Seoul Tower and all that jazz; this picture is currently my desktop background):
The Han River at night:
Another picture of the Han River, from the other side of the building:
Look, it's Spider Man!!!
It was a fun night at the 63 Building...now it's back to the subway and then home (the subway stops at midnight...we left at 11:30pm and hightailed it back to the station):
Get ready for some videos in the next post!
