“Best thing we did in Seoul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

As a family we all really enjoyed the tower! Although "touristy" it's puts Seoul's size and scope into perspective! A 360 view high above the city scape. We came here with our kids, ages 4 & 6, they both enjoyed the tower & it's views

“Take the shuttle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The cable car station can be a bit out of reach as the hike is pretty steep on some routes. View at night might be better than view during the day, but that's probably more of a personal opinion.

“What a sight !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

The tower in itself is a great place to go to. It has several restaurants and eateries in the tower itself. The view from the top is simply amazing.

“Best views of the city from high.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

N Seoul Tower, or Namsan Tower, offers some spectacular views of the city. My favorite time to go is in the evening just before the sun is setting to see the city as the lights turn on.

“Too packed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Came here after our visit to Namsamgol Hanok Village. There were a few direct city bus from the village to Mt Namsan. From there, a manageable steep accent to the tower.
I find the tickets way overpriced. There is nothing much on top and it was over-crowded and noisy. Apparently those who went up hang around (with the steep price, I can understand why) and it was hard to properly enjoy the view.
I went there while the sun was setting and it was nice to see the sunset hues and then quickly turning dark (it was winter time). It was a good way to appreciate the city though ... Seoul is really huge...and the roads are all glittering with cars stuck in the jam :)
