First I must say that during Chuseok is not the best time to visit Namsan Seoul tower. The queus was out of this world, so many people visited Namsan tower during the holiday (we visited Namsan on the 2nd day of Chuseok). Not only the...More

Nice to take the cablecar to reach the top of the mountain and enjoy the view. We were delighted to see a martial art show at the base of the tower.

The Seoul Tower is beautiful. You have to walk a ways to get up there, but it is beautiful. The revolving resturant is there as well.

Can not argue that the views from the top are nice. The tower itself is not all that great. Low end souvenirs at the top. You can mail s post card from the tower. Love locks are cute. Not bad but not a must see.

Seoul Tower is an iconic site to see in Korea. A little known fact is the color the tower is lit, actually indicates visibility conditions. Blue is clear and best viewing, green is next best equaling a little hazy, and red means bad air quality...More
