What is so amazing is that this beautiful park is in the middle of a concrete and steel city. Walking in the park (like walking in Central park in NYC) you do not realize you are in a large, busy, international city. It's a lovely experience.

Traveled there in the autumn and enjoyed the beautiful colors. Not much else to do. Skip the car that goes up and simply enjoy the view walking around if your hotel is near; otherwise skip altogether.

The park has a northern circuit and a southern circuit. I did the northern circuit. The park was popular with families, couples and tourists. Fall foliage was beautiful. The outdoor gym was an interesting idea. I went to the waryongmyo( a shrine dedicated to Zhuge Liang). A beautiful place up a flight of steep stairs. The park is huge. I... More

Just before we left for the airport, we took a cab to the base of the cable car and boy we were glad that we made it up to catch a glimpse of the city view, the autumn foliage of coloured leafs and of course the ever famous love-locks and lovey-dovey scenes from the top of Namsan Park. Definitely a... More

On our way to the high tower we decided to take the cable car. Parking near the cable car is almost impossible. They que to get on the cable car was perhaps 15 minutes. The ride up the mountain is very nice. The ride up takes 10 minutes. From the cable car it's a short walk to the tower which... More

Go there on a clear day and the view is much better. Took the cable car and the cable car was literally packed like sardines. The cable car was also extremely stuffy.
