  • Touristy, yes, but a must see when in Seoul. Great to walk down from the top, and don't miss the love locks!  more »
  • I got the chance to climb to the top floor of this tower. There are impressive views of the city of Seoul where one distinguishes the only historic and skyscrapers. It is to do. If you are in a group, the bus takes you to the most, otherwise the coast is a bit steep but do it anyway.

  • Should you wish to burn some calories, refrain from riding a cable car going here. On the other hand, if you are with children and those in their senior years, I suggest you take that round trip cable...  more »

  • Top of the Seoul city. You can get to there by a couple of ways, by cable car, bus or on foot. The hiking trail is very nice or should be a manageable one even if you are not a frequent hiker. You can enjoy red leaves in Autumn. There is also a couple of restaurants on the top of the tower. The cafe and fast food shop are also good and offer seating so that you can take a break on the top of the hill.
  • Probably a must see in Seoul. Really can get any degree of experience for a reasonable price (but can spend a bit too, think cable car round trip, elevator to the top, any food or souvenirs). But the view is pretty terrific from the city and the experience is grand. Just make sure you consider visibility (which is not a guarantee) when planning your trip; going all the way up is probably going to disappoint if you can't see anything...
  • Awesome views! Recommend going during the day for photos. There are a lot of glares caused by the interior restaurants and cafes. For some unobstructed views, hike down from the tower a bit. Taking the cable car up will save you some breath. You can take the cable car back, but walking down does provide some nice views and is easy.
  • The tower itself has some great views but it's more commercialized than anything else. On weekends you have to wait half an hour to get tpt the lift which then takes you to the top, and another half an hour to get back down again. There are 2 decks in the tower, occupied by a few cafes, stores and a restaurant. They have small elevated seating areas for you to settle down and admire the view. I would say it's worth the money to go, but just once is enough.
  • The view was amazing, I remember going there late morning/early afternoon. Our group were the only tourists there at the time. Would definitely come back in the late afternoon though, I bet the sunset would be nice! Caution: Their bathrooms (a floor below the observatory) have glass walls. I loved it but my mother almost passed out.
