    If you don't feel up to the hike to Seoul Tower (it's about 20-30 minutes of steps), or just want an easy panorama of the buildings and mountains of the city center, the Namsan Cable Car is the perfect solution. Zipping to the top in just a couple of minutes, it affords a lovely panorama, and if it isn't about to change your life, it's also easy on the wallet. (7,500 won roundtrip, a five-minute walk uphill from Myeongdong Station exit 3)

    Красивый вид на гору, правда, придётся постоять в очереди. Лучше в гору пойти пешком, а спуститься уже на канатной дорожке. Если не жалко 4000 вон и 25 минут ожидания в очереди:)

    I went up the cable car with my boyfriend's parents. There's a nice view from it. If I was going to go up Namsan again I would save myself the line and take a bus, probably. But still, a decent thing to do once.

    Do it once (take it up to the tower or take it down). Its not too exciting anf there are cheaper public buses that can get you up and down the mountain.
