This is a must see if you are in Seoul. You can either take the cable car to the top or walk to the top for free. We opted to take the cable car because you'll be doing lots of walking else where...

Namsan Tower and Namsam (Nam Mountain). Went hiking up Namsan which is located within the Jung-Yu district of south central Seoul. Took about 40 minutes up with a couple of breaks to enjoy the view. Along the way there were a couple of cherry blossoms trees and tulips blossoming. There are many locals who hike or cycle here. Our highest hill in Singapore is Bukit Timah Hill at about 164m and located kinda out of the way. Namsan is centrally located with multiple entry points and plus their 4 seasons. I’m sure apart from winter, the locals would be enjoying the walk up and down in the evenings. Traveling allows me to see the difference my country has vs what other country has, the pros and the cons. I definitely appreciate the pros and while I accept the cons (because no choice), it really helps to widen one’s perspective.
Great views of the city from here and easy to get to with a hike or the bus.
