My husband and I went here at night because during the day of our visit, it was really hazy. We figured it wouldn't be as bad at night. It was still hazy, but we did enjoy the view. We try to go to different towers at different cities. I didn't really enjoy being squished in the gondola on the way... More

Visited this landmark and on top of the view over the city we also got to appreciate some red leaves. We took bus 002 up n bus 005 down, skipping cable car as read somewhere else that there might be long queues at cable car.

After a steep climb up the slope, you take the elevator to the top of the tower. Weather is not very clear hence reduced visibility. Otherwise it's a bird'a eye view of Seoul city. But crowded with tourists.

I already walked up to the foot of the Seoul Tower in the week so this time with my wife we rode the cable car up & walked down (very easy!) Best visiting in the evening just after sunset. Amazing views of the city at night :)

This is one of the main landmarks in Seoul and a normal stop on any city tour. It is a nice and convenient way to see the city, but it is quiet busy. The surrounding park is nice for a little walk too.

This was a very quaint trip to N Seoul tower. The tower itself is located in a Park with lots of interesting monuments and views looking over the city. I would recommend to do the climb to the top rather than getting the cable car. It is well worth it just to see the views of the surrounding areas. The... More

It is best to visit at night - to look at the city night view or visit the observatory. You can visit by bus or the cable car (in Myeongdong).
