Nice view of you can see if though the filthy windows. We went at sunset and it was packed and stuffy. I wanted to avoid covid, so we got the heck out working 10 mins. Better off going to the Lotte World Tower.

I hiked up the stairs path and down the road path. I think next time I'd stick to the road side because the stairs are SO HARD to climb...at least for me. Still I was proud to get to the top. Once there, the view of Seoul just can't be beat. It's amazing. I went in the Fall so seeing the colorful trees just added to the beauty of the journey.

I had a great time at this place. It was kinda windy when I went there, but it was still worth it. Great views of Seoul. I especially enjoyed those locks of different colors, like those in Paris. Koreans are hopeless romantics which is endearing. 😍

We visited Seoul Tower during the summer of 2020. It was pleasantly even more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Be sure to wear walking comfortable shoes. The trolley up gives a lovely night time view. There's a love locket bridge. You and your special one can either bring a lock or purchase a lock at a little store and attache to a bridge or any of the rails in a certain area, you can also sign the benches and novelty items there. You'll know the spot when you see it. The elevator up the tower is super fast and all the little rooms you go through to get to the viewing spot at the top of the tower are delightful and offer opportunities for selfies, and pics. We enjoyed the great view of Seoul from the observation tower and the portions of the glass floor. Actually found some really great gifts to bring home to the kids who didn't travel with us. Overall, an enjoyable experience. Plenty of taxis outside, but beware they don't want to travel too far out of their radius so you might have to check with a few before finding one to get you back to your hotel, depending on where you are staying. Also know in general traffic in Seoul is horrible. It can take way too long to get from one spot to another. Plan for that as you make your plans.

Namsan Tower is a Korean landmark, and it is one of the tallest towers in Asia. It offers not only a view of all of Seoul, but also a chance to enjoy a meal inside the tower. At first, Namsan Tower was used for broadcasting, and then fully open to the public, it is worth watching the Namsan Tower lock wall, slowly a wall of locks, and the lock hanging on it must be a couple together. Now, the Nanshan Tower locked wall is a very popular tourist attraction. At Nanshan Tower, the highlight is that there are interpreters for multiple languages so that you do not have to worry about language barriers. Secondly, the entertainment near the tower is also very much available, which can satisfy no longer a single view of a tourist destination but can enjoy food and shopping at the same time as viewing the landscape.

The SkyRail Cable Car saves you the time & energy of climbing up to Seoul Tower on foot, so you’ll have more time/energy to explore while you are up there. Worth the $12 per person! I suggest bringing a lock from home w/ your initials on it; that way you’ll have a unique lock that’ll stick out from the sea of locks sold up there. Breathtaking views, too.

The views are amazing, but I also really recommend walking up and down the hill instead of the cable car if you can.

It's a long climb but so worth it, especially if you go at sunset. You'll also skip the long cable car queues this way.

I walked from my hotel, a nice 3 km walk through Seoul. Last bit through a forest. The tower plaza, decks and viewing deck at the top is covered in American kids Halloween music, like monster mash. Cute at first but after about 10 minutes I’m dying to get away.

The music and the gift shop feel of the whole place was a big minus for me. There are some restaurants were you can escape the music. It is a great view from the top of the tower though.

Namsan Seoul tower or Seoul tower or the radio tower is a popular tourist spot in the heart of Seoul, close to Myeongdong. It is located on top of a mountain and is accessible by road/cable car/a hike. Prefer going in the evening to catch a glimpse of sunset & night time of Seoul.
However, it gets crowded & boarding a cable car would be a long wait. A whole lot of love padlocks are put up in the rails & it was mind blowing to see them locked for years together.
You can see a lot of people struggling to pose and snap the whole tower in the picture. This was fun to watch.

View point for photo-op/usual convenience stores/snack bars/restrooms/souvenir shop are available at the top.
