  • Seoul Tower is the first place in Seoul, you can take the cable car or bus to go to the evening tower to see the night scene, not to see the tower of the crowd, the suggestion row and the viewer's time is wrong, you can save a lot of waiting time

  • Who doen’t like cable car rides and observatories? It is a good contrast of beacon hill during the Josepn period and the technology now not to mention the romantic lovelocks, instagrammable scenic spo...  more »
  • One of the most visible landmarks, Seoul tower is worth a visit at least once. I've been twice now, both during my first visit to Seoul and my most recent. Getting here can be a bit tricky if you don'...  more »

  • Astonishing view of the City from the Observatory deck. We went at night time and would like to come back during the day. It was more convenient because we went up and down by the cable car. But there one thing we regret, we didn’t wear thicker or warmer coats. It was freezing when we visited. But we enjoyed and took some photos. Saw the famous love locks that I only saw in some Korean dramas.
  • The wait time for the cable car up to the tower can take about 1-hour but the ride is worth the wait. I suggest getting on line about 30 minutes before sunset. The lighting for photos will be perfect once you get to the top. When returning to the bottom don't catch one of the taxis parked next to the cable car waiting line. They charge much more. Walk down the hill and flag down a taxi dropping off other visitors.
  • The view from the 5th floor observation area was nice. You can see far away. Getting up to the tower was an adventure in itself. The cable car ride was fun although it can be a little too crowded. You can probably walk up the mountain but when it gets hot it's way better to pay for the cable car. Adter the cable car you can walk along and see all the heart locks people leave there. The mountain top is a good place to spend a day especially for tourists but it is more geared towards couples. Families and groups will have a good time too.
  • The views are amazing on a clear day. If it's foggy, don't bother going. As the climb up the mountain is quite long and many, many stairs, take the cable car up. Walking down isn't so bad and the views at night are absolutely gorgeous. I visited this place as a single twenty something and always thought it was rather romantic. This time around I had the privledged to place my own love lock on the love lock bridge. It's so fun to look at some of the cute locks and their promises. This is an absolute must if you're in Seoul in my opinion!
  • Nice view. Many tourist. If you are first time in Seoul, can take a look. Got to climb a slope up to take cable car up to the hill top. Need to pay for the cable car ticket.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
