About the event
We will meet at Seoul Station (Line 1) Exit No 4, and walk to Sungnyemun/Namdaemun Gate. You can meet us at the subway exit street level or at the Sungnyemun/Namdaemun Gate but when you RSVP please let us know if you will meet us at the subway exit or gate. Bring your Seoul City Wall (inner) stamp map. This is a 2 stamp (out of 4) walk. This walk has a fair bit of ups and downs on steps and paths as we go over Namsan. It also involves a bit of city walking and walking on paths. Great views from Namsan. We will pass the Millenium Seoul Hilton Hotel, Namsan Public Library, the Site of Mongmyeoksan Beacon Tower, N Seoul Tower, Banyan Tree Hotel and Spa, The Shilla Hotel, Gwanghuimun Gate in Dongdaemun, Dongdaemun History & Culture Park, Heunginjimun Gate in Dongdaemun and finally end at Hyehwamun Gate near Hansung University Station (line 4). You can join for part of this walk if you don't want to do the whole trail. There are plenty of places to drop off or to catch up with us in the urban sections but catching up will require a bit of texting back and forth because we can't predict when we will be where! We will set up a Kakao Chat group specifically for this event the day before. Please share your pictures on this chat only. We will pick a few to share with the general BASS group.
