Affordable tickets to view all of Seoul from the tower. The souvenirs sold inside are also affordable. Went there during the day. Will try going during the night next time.

The tower was quite high and one can see the view of Hanyang River. However I didn't enjoy it was it was foggy that evening. Perhaps it was due to post-rain. Maybe if it was sunny, it would have been a better experience

Try to avoid weekends. If you go on weekdays I don't think there'll be long queues unless it's during school holidays.
