Visit this park and the Seoul Tower in the Namsan Park. You will have a mind blowing view over Seoul and the park is beautiful.

When I was stationed here, 55 years ago, the only attraction up here was the statue of Syngman Rhee. Now, that statue has been relocated and the Seoul Tower has appeared. My son-in-law and I went up in the tower and took pictures for every angle. Although the landscape has changed tremendously in 55 years, some landmarks still exist. I'd... More

The observatory provided a bird's eye view of Seoul, regardless of the time of the day. A post office was available at the observatory for travellers to write and send postcards to friends and family. Love locks bridge was beautiful. Namsan cable car was a great experience. However, staff would encourage more people to get on the cable car despite... More

A good place to go, if you just want to chill on top of it. Make sure it's not a foggy place. You can op to visit the teddy bear museum on top of the Seoul Tower.

Use this cableway to get on top of the hill (btw if you get there's no such need to get on top of the tower - view is practically the same, but at tower you will watch through the muddy glass). Nice place, good view 360 degrees.

The elevator to the cable car station was an interesting ride. With gradual views of the disappearing city, it is apt as a prelude to the trip to the top. The cable car was interesting and when you reach the top, you still get to go to the top of N Seoul Tower. The view is very good and there... More

Do visit this place at nighttime and have an awesome view of the city. You also get to visit the N Seoul Tower, which is a must see as well.
