“Take the shuttle”
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 !!”
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.”
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!”
Reviewed December 8, 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 :)

“Iconic place of Seoul”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is the first place when we visited Seoul on April 2013. It's already spring at that time, but the weather still freezing around 4 degrees celcius. After put our luggage at Irene Hotel Namdaemun, we went to N Seoul Tower by bus. There are many ways to get there. You can take either bus or just walk to the tower. We start the trip at 7 PM, we took a bus (Blue bus no. 406) from Namdaemun market and alight at Namsan tower tunnel 3 (2 stops). We walk accross the street throuh tunnel heading to Namsan Oreumi (The elevator). It located right beside the street, and bring us to Namsan Cable car. We buy ticket for round trip, and it costs 8000 won. It's a bit pricey. When we arrived at N Seoul Tower we still have to walk through the stairs. But it' worth it. The view of Seoul was great. At the corner there is padlock tree. We bought one at the souvenir store and lock it there. It's memorable time since my wife really love K-drama. We also went to Teddy bear Museum which i think very interesting place. My kids really like to see a lot of cute diorama. We really love this place.
