Well, pretty much what you'd expect - some great views, some tacky but fun souvenirs etc. Cable car ride is fun, as is expected. Nice territory to walk around as well.

Went here because I skipped it my past 2 visits to Seoul. It was quite a hike from Myeongdong to the cable car station to bring us up the tower (I forgot how much but around 9000 won roundtrip), but it’s manageable. After getting off...More

While the tower itself is like most viewing towers, the whole experience is unique. You start from the walk up to the cable car centre. Then there is the joy of taking the cable car up to the base of the tower. Once you arrive...More

We walked up to base of the tower and back. Pleasant climb in a natural setting. The top on the hill has some shops and food and some public seats so you can spend some time.

My first trip there. Good eye opener to see how this being built and its concept. The weather was not good during our visit. Could really see the outside view. But with visiting. The ticket price cheaper will be good.

Other than the steep steep walk towards the tower where the padlocks are, there wasn't really much to see here. The food at the top were limited and pricey. Our trip here could have been replaced by another place but what the heck; a check...More

Naver app is great. Are you asking about the tower itself? You can hike to the top but it is a long steep hike. The cable car was quick and there are restaurants and shops on each level. You can get your picture taken... More
