Namsan park and the Seoul tower were places on our must see list. For a small fee a cable car can take you from the base to the top of the park. The cable car ride was great since you get a nice view of the city and the park. If the weather was warmer I would have liked to... More

It's really nice to come up here and see the view of Seoul city, and it's so quiet and calm!

Took the cable car ride up to Namsan Tower. Very nice scenic view. Tourists and senior citizens above 65 (if I do not recall wrongly) can purchase a cheaper cable ride. The walk to Namsan Tower is good exercise to take in the beauty that the park can offer. The legendary locks put up by visitors and loving couple is... More

If you go during the Korean holidays, there's a lot of people. The cable car will be packed and the queue waiting period is about 30 minutes to an hour. During winter, I think you should skip cos there's nothing much to view. There's a viewing area for the public as well.

I went here again 2 times last year. November and December, in 2 consecutive times. Last week of November, I went here with my friends. Since I already went here last 2012, It's not that exciting but still a perfect place to view Seoul in 360 degrees. After a week, I came here with my cousins. It was already winter,... More

We have been to Seoul for the Lunar New Year, so queues were long at major attractions. So in case you see people lining up outside the building, the waiting time will be at least 60-90 min. The tower did not look very far from the cable car station, so we decided to walk. The way up is a little... More

The cable car ride was very crowded. If you're expecting something romantic, skip that. The N Tower is a very well managed spot to view the Seoul skyline. There is an indoor viewing area with seating open to public for free.

we went at night and took the cable cars up to the top and the view is amazing, when visiting Seoul, this is definitely one of the many places that should see and take in the view which is a once in a lifetime.

Got all the way to Namsan to take the cable car up the top. No way am I hiking up that mountain! Minimum 70 min wait for a cable car and there's only two cars! One up one down! Never seen a cable car with only a couple of cars! Disappointed I left without going up.
