  • There are two ways to reach this tower: on foot or by cable car. In summer the heat is unbearable, so it is best to go by cable car. To climb to the top of the tower you have to pay around $10, but the views from the vicinity of the tower are also spectacular.

  • I don’t recommend people to visit, as the sightseeing is not good enough, and I take a couple of hours to wait for the tram to get there. And I only spend 20 minutes to see the sightseeing. You won’t ...  more »
  • If you want to go to this place but on tight schedule, use their cable car. The cable car station is around 10 minutes walk from exit 3 of myeongdong station. But if you have extra time, just walk uph...  more »

  • The N Seoul Tower has great panoramic views of the city. A cable car takes you all the way up, however, the line for the cable car can get quite long. For those who dare, there’s also a trekking path. Once you reach up, apart from the views, there are several eateries and other ducks tiny places which offer great food. If your ready to wait for 60-90 minutes or more then you can go all the way up the tower. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. What added to the experience was the fact that we visited around 4pm, so we got to the see the city in the light and by the time we left is was 7pm so we got the night view too!
  • This is a big tower in the middle of the city on top of a hill. It's kind of a nice place. I would walk up the hill if I were you. There's some nice yellow buses that will take you to the top. There's also a cable car that you can pay money to wait in line for a long time before you ride. Some days the line is not so long. But mostly it's long. You can also pay money to go to the top of this Tower. Like I said it's a nice Tower.
  • You should definitely go up to the observatory. The view is spectacular! At night the city lights up and the view is incredible. We went up just before sunset to have the chance to see the city both in sunlight and in darkness. The tower itself is full of attractions, coffee, and restaurants with great view.
  • N Seoul Tower is the signature observatory tower of Seoul, sitting on top of Namsan Park. It also houses thematic museums, cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops, so you have plenty of options on what to do. At 10,000 won per entry, N Seoul Tower is one of the cheapest observatories that I have been to. You can mix and match your ticket to have museum entries, food or dining experience to go with it. For a really romantic night, you can make advanced booking (they don't accept walk-ins) for n.Grill, a high class French restaurant. Really enjoyed my experience here. We had a lovely coffee at the cafe on the observatory tower with an equally lovely view. Highly recommend in for an evening outing paired with dinner so you get to see both the day and night view.
  • It was the first time to follow an extremely picturesque hiking route up the mountain. And also the first time to visit Nam-Seoul Tower in the evening. It was breath-takingly beautiful to see it up close lit up at night. The vibe inside was awesome with the music and all the people on the observation deck. The ladies room toilet cubicle had a window with a view!!
