“Recommended for night view of Seoul”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Good night scenic view of Seoul, multiple affordable and somewhat average dining options. There are many events at plaza so check their website to make more memorable.

“You should go here”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

To orient to Seoul (and N Korea) this should be one of your first stops. The tower enables you to see for miles...all the way to Russia on a clear day. Things to know: the wait to get up into the tower, and the Teddy Bear Museum in the tower, can be very long. You do not have to climb up the stairs to the tower, you can take a cab, and that is worth every cent, believe me, unless you are a hiker. And most importantly, there are bathrooms one floor down from the "observation level" of the tower, as well as a coffee shop. A good way to slip the crowd.

It really takes the the breath from you because of the walk from the parking area to the tower is really steep. The view though is great. It is similar to being in Hong Kongs Victoria Peak plus you can go up the tower.

“A smoggy/cloudy view”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Catch the cable car up Namsan mountain from near myeongdong. On the day we were there it was cloudy/smoggy so it wasn't really worth paying to go up the tower. Instead the viewing platforms provide a high view over Seoul, and the city is HUGE! Lots of places to eat and drink in and around the tower, including one cafe with a cool viewing area. Take a padlock if you want to join the padlocks love section.
