As tired as you may be after a long day of traveling, you'll probably still want a little more fun. The glittery night lights, the romantic nightscape, the crowded night markets and much more fill the nights of Korea. Here are a few places famous for their nightscapes. 

If you want to enjoy the nightscape from the highest place in Korea, then Seoul Sky is where you want to go. The 123-story Lotte World Tower is the 5th tallest building in the rowld. The glass floor of the Sky Deck on the 118th level will make you feel like you’re walking on air. The Hangang Observatories along the Hangang River, which crosses Seoul east to west, is ideal for sunset views. The lights of speeding cars and the setting sun create a uniquely calming view. In contrast to the glamorous cityscape, the Bukchon Observatory offers a cozy and serene view of the Bukchon Hanok Village. The best pictures of the hanok village are at night, just about sunset. And located on a small hill in the Jeonju Hanok Village, Omokdae offers peaceful views of the traditional village. After a long day, try relaxing at Omokdae Pavilion. If you’re looking for a more adventurous experience, you should go to Flying Suwon for a helium-filled baloon ride over Suwon Hwaseong Fortress and downtown Suwon. And the Yeosu Cable Car, which connects the surrounding island to Yeosu, offers great night views of nearby tourist attractions like Dolsandaegyo Bridge, and you’ll feel like you’re flying the night sky!
