  • 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 »

  • Such an amazing view of Seoul. Even if you don’t get a ticket to go up the tower, it’s totally worth going up the cable car or hiking up the hill. Between the tower and cable car is an area where there are thousands of keys locked into fences and sculptures which is a very beautiful sight. Going up the tower is also nice but it’s quite small at the top. There is a cafe or two and a couple shops but other than that, just enjoy the view out of windows that have major world cities written on them in the direction they could be found.
  • Beautiful scenery at the top, going uphill is good for exercise too. There is a wall of Love Padlocks, can bring it yourself or purchase over there. Souvenir and food outlet is available. Very convenient and clean. Love it.
  • You can pay a minimal fee for the cable car or choose to jog up to the peak. Both times I've visited was winter so it was really cold and windy. Best time to visit is during sunset but the line could be long so go early and just wait for it. The night view is amazing as you can see Seoul glittering with lights. You can also choose to go up the observatory but as a budget traveler, the view on the peak is already enough. There are food kiosks and coffee shops up there so no need to worry about your tummy. There are benches around so you could take a rest while admiring the view.
  • Great place to hang out with friends and family. The view up here is spectacular. On a clear day one can see Seoul as far as your eyes can see. The tower at the top has a three hundred and sixty degree view and has photographs of the different countries one is facing at. There are lots of cafes and restaurants. You can take the cable car 🚠 or have a 20 minute hike up to the TOP.
  • You take a cable car up to the mountain top, climb some stairs and reach the bottom of the tower. From here already the view is spectacular. You can then go up to the top of the tower and get a breath-taking view of the entire Seoul landscape. The tower and its surrounding is also home to many restaurants and souvenir shops, and you can easily spend a couple of hours here. If you are so inclined, you can always go down (as well as up) via the stairs.
