Geocache Description:

This cache is mainly designed for new kids in town or tourists who like to combine sightseeing with geocaching. It is a mystery that leads you through Seoul to some of the most important points of interests (POI), at least to my impression.

And here is the mystery:
I uploaded 10 photos of POIs in Seoul to the gallery and gave them a number. During your quick tour through Seoul you have to identify the objects on the photos correctly. Finally, put the POI number you have identified into the following equation:



Then calculate the place where the cache is hidden from the following equation:
N37 32.(365+ABC) E126 59.(681+XYZ)

The cachebox is hidden close to a beautiful park. You can park at the wedding hall at N37 32.663 E127 00.038 . The cache however is located a little bit outside the park. Exit into the woods at the staircase near the gym station (see the hint and spoilers). There are many muggles around here, watch out!

Have fun caching!

A note to all the tourist cachers: What about designing a similar cache for your home town? Just copy the mystery and exchange the pics (I won't sue you for the copyright ). And don't forget to copy this note. Finally name it "Top 10 POI -your town name-" and everybody can easily search for this type of sightseeing cache (there are already a few).
