...depending on the air quality. Quite a hike if you walk (cable-car available at a cost). Food and drink options at the top. Good for a half-day or less.

You see incredible views from so high up and it's rather bizarre yet lovely to see such a view high up when you go the the toilets as well so you can still enjoy the view when you go and do what you've got to do. The food there is incredible and there are plenty of souvenirs for you to... More

We visited N-Seoul Tower (aka Namsan tower) at noon so it was a bit hot for us though it was early April. The way led from bus stop to the tower was a bit steep but not difficult to walk. The scene around the tower was beautiful as we could see most of Seoul inner city, even the palaces. It... More

Nice views when walking to the base of N Seoul Tower from where the cable car stops. There are many photo spots with 'Love' all over the base of the N... More

We arrived and my eyes almost popped out to see the queue! We started queuing at 3pm plus and by the time we got up there, it was 8pm plus. We were hungry and i wasn't happy. We ordered a noodle dish to share. Didn't bother, because the place was packed!

This is a nice place to go to see Seoul in a different perspective. Many people choose to hike from the bottom to the top. Below the tower, there are plenty of places for lovers to take pics and even put locks in the lovers lock area (like the one in Paris)
