  • One of my favourite attractions in Seoul. You will not regret a trip to the tower. Four storeys of dining and arcade games will help keep you entertained. Access to the tower itself is 10,000krw and can take up to 30min in line during peak times (queue down is very long so please allow time). The tower has two observation decks and a cafe. There are great photo opportunities but note that the insurmountable Skyline is impossible to capture in one photo! You will need to catch the bus up here so allow time for this on weekends when it is busy (up to 20min wait).
  • Seoul Tower is just like any other Tower experience there isn't really anything special here. If you enjoy scenic pictures of the city then it's worth a visit. My friend and I decided to hike to the Tower from the nearest station! It's roughly a 5km hike if you enjoy walking up steep inclines and through parks I highly recommend this as you can start to see Seoul as you climb up. My only grievance are the shops on the top floor of Seoul Tower. They are so bright that at times the glare of the lights in the shop reflect on the window and it's difficult to take pictures of the view you are looking at.
  • North Seoul Tower is one of the must visit places in Seoul South Korea. Put a pin on your travel map and head over there, you will have amazing memories, and also not to mention, amazing photos with a 360 view of Seoul. There are several ways you can reach the top: Walk, bus, or cable car. There is a parking lot at the base of the hill next to the cable car start point, but it can get crowded and empty spots are a luxury. I suggest taking the cable car up and walking back down. That way you have the both of worlds. There are coffee shops up top of the hill and also gift shops. Usually there are several performances of martial arts and dancing in the plaza next to the base of the tower, a must see as well. There is a fee to get on the tower top floor, check the tower website for an accurate rate. Once on the top floor you have a 360 view of Seoul! Don’t forget to buy a postcard and mail it home right there. There are also international stamps available to buy next to the postcard stands. Enjoy the views and selfies! You can see North Korea on a clear day.
  • You will never get too old visit the place. Its been so many times which I barely remembered because I was living in Korea once. Its changed quite a lot...cos its once full of locks much more than the current one. Not allow visitors to throw away locks into the wood, which is a great idea. Weather here is truly nice compared to town. Visit N tower observation point will cost you some bucks. Within the tower also offers foods, snacks and drinks. Its still one umbelivable landmark in Seoul.
  • A great place to get a view of the city. Do take the cable car to get here especially if you have kids you need to carry or elderly as no car or tour bus can go up to the base of the tower. A challenging short hike a steep hill from where the car/bus stop. To avoid the crowd, go during weekdays. We went in the morning as soon as the cable car starts to operate so there was hardly any queue to get on the cable car.
