Roundtrip ticket costs 8500 Won. I walked from my hotel in Myeongdong to the Namsan Cable Car station. It was a bit of a walk uphill since the Namsan Outdoor Escalator wasn’t working. There was no air conditioning in the cable car. It was crowded...More

This is definitely not to be missed if you are in Seoul! The views are spectacular and there are lots of things to see and do - we even tried VR for the first time!

We took a taxi from Itaewon straight to the Cable Car station as we heard it's a very long walk uphill. It was a weekday and there was no queue. The waiting area was air-conditioned so that wasnt too bad. Strollers have to be folded...More

I have walked up the hill to the Namsan tower before. In fact, I walked it several times before trying the cable cars. The cable cars are the way to go! There are still many steps to go up after getting off the cable car....More

If exiting at the Myeong-dong metro station, exit via exit 1 (NOT 7/8!!!) and wait on the sidewalk. The shuttle bus stop is NOT signposted.

While the line for the cable car can be long & crowded, it is worth the wait for the panoramic views of Namsan. Go during the peak of fall foliage or spring cherry blossoms for the best views! Make sure to check the visibility index...More

The old cable car which represents Namsan and Seoul. It's nothing special comparing to brand new ones in the country. But, visitors would better try when Namsan is covered with snow, cherry blossoms or fall foliages. Considering the distance, people may complain it's expensive. But,...More
