Way too crowded by local and tourist. Have to queue pretty long to get in the elevator for going both up and down the observatory tower. Somehow it's worth the walk for namsam park and the city night scene.

Situated in the center of Seoul, Namsan is Seoul’s
most well-known hill for having the iconic N Seoul
Tower perched on top of it. It’s not just the
picturesque views from Namsan Park that make it a top
draw, but N Seoul Tower’s status as a site for lovers
from around the world who come on a daily basis to
place a lock on the tower’s fence, professing their
love to the external world. Nature lovers will be
