  • The SkyRail Cable Car saves you the time & energy of climbing up to Seoul Tower on foot, so you’ll have more time/energy to explore while you are up there. Worth the $12 per person! I suggest...  more »
  • I walked from my hotel, a nice 3 km walk through Seoul. Last bit through a forest. The tower plaza, decks and viewing deck at the top is covered in American kids Halloween music, like monster mash...  more »

  • Amazing place to visit during any part of the day and night! I highly recommend taking a lift that will take you the base of the tower. While ascending in the lift, on the clear day, you will be able to see the entire Seoul. Once at the tower you will need to locate the entrance to the tower to get the top! For those who like to hike, I highly recommend avoid taking a lift and rather park at the base of the mountain and hike up to the tower which should take about about 30-40 minutes (without stops). Wear comfortable clothes and make multiple stops because you will find amazing places for photos or just enjoy the nature and beauty around!
  • The view was spectacular. You’ll have a 360 degree view of Seoul from above. The walk up hill towards the tower was nice and comfortable. There are many artists providing caricature painting or drawing services at the top of the hill. Best time to visit is early morning or just right before sunset. Golden hour will provide mild light which is best for photography & the city will look a lot better at those times.
  • Very photogenic place to take pictures, not only for it's panorama but also the wall of locks. You can find a little shop on the top of the mountain and buy little lock and write your wishes on it and put it on the wall among the others. We were visiting this place in the last week of August where the traditional cultural performances took place. We were introduced to several musical instruments, fight weapons and dances with a sword. Quite unique experience!
  • A MUST visit while in Seoul. We hiked to the top via the stair path while my MIL took the bus up. We were hot and sweaty by the time we got to the top, but it was worth every step! The view is amazing. You really can’t beat it in Seoul. There’s a gift shop at the bottom of the tower where you can buy “love locks” to leave on the railings at the top. There’s a gold pig (in 2019) to make a wish on. There’s food and ice cream as well. You can walk through some parts without a ticket but you need a ticket to go to the top of the tower. It’s a really neat experience. Even if you don’t got to the very top, a trip up to the base is worth it!
  • I have visited this place twice. The first time with my friend, and the second time with my boyfriend. When I visited with my friend it was during the day in summer and we could easily see the view of Seoul, surrounding mountains, the river etc. The second time I went in winter during the night with my boyfriend. Even though it was so busy, time still seemed to go quickly because of the organised staff and processes. The night view was gorgeous because of the lights. Personally I prefer the view during the day time, but only because I live in Korea and could easily identify landmarks. For tourists coming to Korea the night view might be a better choice.
