    Seoul Tower is a must see attraction in Korea. The tower offers a breathtaking view of Seoul along with some great little snack bars.

    It has also been known as the Namsan Tower or Seoul Tower, located on Namsan Mountain. Visitors can reach it by Namsan cable car and a little walk to the tower. There are a Teddy Bear Shop, gift shop, coffee shop and restaurant around there. Don't miss the Heart Chair and the Love Padlock.

    One of Seoul's four recognizable buildings (though fortunately that number is set to rise!) N'Seoul Tower might be a pure tourist destination, but it's also the best place in the city for getting a true idea of how startlingly massive Seoul really is. On a good day, you can see for miles, taking in the spread of this megalopolis as it sprawls on and on through waves of low mountains. On a bad day, you'll be treated to views of Seoul's famous smog-haze, turning everything in the distance into ugly grey-brown shapes. As an upside, the plaza at the base of the tower features frequent martial arts demonstrations by actors in period costume -- actually much cooler than it sounds! (9000 won per adult.)

    Seoul Tower is a nice place to visit if you are traveling in Seoul. It is nice to see the city on clear days. The park around the tower is also very nice. There is often live entertainment in the afternoons on the weekends. The only downside is that the restaurants at the towers are a bit over priced. It would be better to eat in Myeongdong or Namdaemun before going up the mountain.

    Spectacular view of Seoul at night, plus an awesome night show. You also have to check out the Teddy Bear Museum... it's adorable :-)

    We went in the late afternoon and stayed to watch the sunset and see the city at night. Beautiful and totally worth it.

    Definitely go up to the observation deck, especially around sunset. The pictures will be worth it. You can buy souvenirs up there as well as send a postcard at the "tallest post office in Seoul!"

    Seoul N Tower is a must see if you are in Seoul, when you get there you can either take the cable car to the base of the tower or if you're on a budget you can walk but be warned we walked and it is a very steep hill!

    Even though the tower is a tourist attraction due to the fantastic views of the city in the evening (when we got the lift down from the observation deck) it felt more like a couples destination with love songs playing over the speaker system and LOADS of couples taking pictures or adding their padlocks to the 'love fence'!

    Без сомнения, идти сюда надо вечером. Оптимальное время - за часа два до заката, и обязательно пешком. Взбираясь по тропинкам (да чего уж там, по отличным асфальтовым дорогам) горы Намсан, вы имеете возможность полюбоваться восхитительными видами на вечерний Сеул. Не пропустите обсерваторию и площадку обозрения, откуда открывается особо красивый вид. Всего за 4 доллара вас доставят на смотровую площадку башни, где можно не только полюбоваться ночным городом, но и отправить открытку из самого высокого почтового отделения Кореи (всего 800 вон в любую страну мира). Когда будете уходить, не забудьте заглянуть в музей мишек Тедди, что в цокольном этаже - куча удовольствия за 5000 вон. Ну, и не упустите шанса прикупить его экспонаты в магазине на выходе!

    A nice attraction in Seoul and evening is the best time to visit. There are amazing views over the city! And famous "A Lock of Love" where you can see thousands of love padlocks locked to the fence!

    Great place to go up and see the whole city and more! Once up there, it's cool cause on every window it tells you what countries/cities are in that direction. Also you can buy a postcard there and mail it directly from there. You can also buy a magnatic wood block for $12,000 won (Korean currency) and write on it and stick it on a wall of wood blocks. If you do do that then your blocks are only up for one year. After the one year, you can come and get it. Just an awesome place to visit!

Description

Get a unique perspective on South Korea in the Seoul N Tower. Opened to the public in 1980, this communications tower has a circular observation platform allows a complete view of the city and its environs. Go in the early evening and watch the city transform into a glittering jewelry box of coruscating light, and imagine the 10 million lives going on at your feet. Stop at the gift shop for a ... read more
souvenir, have a bite to eat at one of the restaurants and make your way to the chairlift to descend back into the streets of Seoul, where you look up at the tower and wonder who is looking down.
