We went on Earth Hour! Something we forgot before hand, lucky we took the opportunity while walking up the stairs to take some nice photos of the Tower.

Original plan was to get the cable car, but the lines were just too long, so would recommend getting there early next time!

It was a nice walk up to the tower after dinner, great views highly recommended!

The instructions to the "lift" to the base station is not very accurate. Get out from Exit 3 at Myeongdong Station and walk towards Shingsagae. At the major interaction turn left and you should see the "lift" up the slope. This lift will take you to the base station for the cable car right to the tower. You need separate tickets for the cable car ride and the tower. There is also the newly open Teddy Bear Museum at the base of the tower.

Went there at night and the view of the city was fabulous! We decided to go on the cable car up to the base of the tower and that was an added bonus. It wasn't cheap but wasn't expensive either. All in all, good value for money.

We caught the free elevator from Myeong dong to the cable cars to get to the tower as it is on top of Mt Namsen. The elevator doesn't run on a Monday until 1pm but there are steps up to the cable cars if you're feeling energetic.
There is a viewing area inside the tower that you can visit without paying to go up and to be fair the view is probably just as good.
We spent quite a few hours up the tower. There is a cafe and small gift shop. You can also buy small tiles that you can write and and attach to a board there. There is also a wishing well that you can buy a small plastic coin to through in. Although we all missed.
At the bottom of the tower are lots of locks that people have written on and attached to the railings. They do sell locks inside the tower or you can take your own. There are a number of cafes at the bottom which are good value for money.
We also went in the teddy bear museum which is at the bottom of the tower. It was good fun.

The North Seoul Tower is accessible by a number of routes. The first time I went, we walked, and it was hot, humid, steep and tiring. The second time we were on a hop on off Seoul tour bus. Both times we did not get in because the queues were so long. If you are desperate to get in then try getting there early!
