Namsan Park has a great view of the whole cityscape. The park is clean and has good food establishments on top. Definitely a good place to go to for a couple especially if interested in adding to the love locks in the park. We came on a bus with our tour but I heard that some of my other friends... More

Very nice for first timers. Went to the Namsan Park (and N Tower) with my girlfriend late at night, which was good because most of the tourists were gone by the time we arrived at the peak by the cable car. The place offered a breathtaking view of Seoul and it is quite romantic. Being a park, the place also... More

Namsan is a hill/mountain that screams Seoul so much, it appears in many Korean dramas/movies that are set in Seoul. Go at night if you would love to experience it with a partner with all the romantic feeling of the thousands of Seoul city lights. However, prepare for the long queue for the cable car where the waiting time can... More

We were in Myeongdong on a Sunday and tried to hail a cab to the cable car station, but most cabs won't take us there. We finally had a nice cab driver who was willing to send us there, but there was a huge jam up the hill slope, and finally when we arrived at the cable car station, there... More

If you've watched enough k-dramas, then this place will be familiar to you and worth going to. Buy a lock to add to their wall of locks. You have to pay to going up inside the tower. It wasn't that impressive and bit pricey but worth doing at least once. You can look all around Seoul from up there but... More

The Seoul tower is really prominent that you can see it from every corner of the city. I think the tower is OK but to climb to the tower is really hard time for me. Quite regret coming here but I need place to kill time.

Take the city bus to the top. Skip the over priced tower. We walked down from the top to the lower park which is very beautiful. Once you get away from the very touristy area surrounding the tower which is packed with loud Chinese tourists its very quite.

So far my favourite spot in Seoul despite the long journey up. Very beautiful sunset on the chilly platform. Bring locks to lock your love there to avoid getting charged more than you need for locks on platforms. To go up to the cable car go the the main road and there is a lift to the cable car platform.... More

Lovely large park and garden area with a number of transplanted ancient Hanok houses complete with period furniture. Also a few live artisans at work. Worth spending 2 - 3 hours wandering around.

The cable car to Namsan park is a short walk up from the Myeongdong metro station, about 10 minutes. I would suggest going in the morning as afternoons can be busy, especially if it's a public holiday or weekend. If you don't mind queues then go anytime. About 8000 kW for the cable car then an entrance fee for the... More
