“A must walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This is a must! - mingle with the 100's of locals walking in Namsan park enjoying the views - the incredible tree planting scheme to maintain the forest and the various amenities along the tracks.

“A garden in the clouds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Namsan is a hill on the southern edge of old Seoul. It is reached by cable car or scenic walk. On its peak, which itself offers panoramic views of the city on a clear day, is the North Seoul Tower. There is a revolving restaurant at the top of the tower. The gardens are nicely laid out and Namsan is close to the semi-pedestrianised shopping district of Myeungdong.

“Great place for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

If you want to walk up a hill and experience some relative quiet and surround yourself by greenery, this is the place. You can also observe Koreans relaxing and having fun.
