There is construction along the city wall, so we didn't go up the way we had planned, but we had a nice walk up to the top of the hill with a great view. At the top there were lots of cultural demonstrations of dancing and fighting which really intrigued the kids. We were able to walk down the way... More

This is a fun place to visit. We walked from the subway to the cable car (bit of an uphill hike). Then took the cable car to the top. There is also a bus from the subway to the top. The top has great views over Seoul and some places to get a coffee, a drink and something to eat.... More

Namsan park, which is (according to the signs on the ground) the geographic centre of Seoul, is a great place to walk and get away from the traffic and noise, while also being able to enjoy great views down to the city. There are lots of trails and routes leading through the forest, as well as more direct roads that... More

This is a lovely park, perfect for a stroll on a weekend with family and friends. The paths is well-maintained and signalized properly. We recommend two access points: from the Grand Hyatt - easier, or from Myeongdong, where the cable car can be found. As an alternative there are two buses going to the top. Toilettes available along the way.... More

A long haul to visit the mountains in the city, why not visit just here at Namsan Park. I found it quite amusing as seeing the cable car rides up from the base to the peak is a totally new experience for me and my friends. The atmosphere in this region brought an intensive feeling where I felt much at... More

Namsan park and tower is definitely worth a visit. There is no better place to get a nice view of the city. It's also close to Myeongdong so you have plenty of things to do afterwards. Go there early to avoid the crowd. I only waited about 15 minutes to get onto the tram. Bring your own lock or buy... More
