Namsan Tower (N Seoul Tower)

Offering one of the most beautiful panoramic views in the city, the 777 foot (236.7 meters) Namsam tower, or N Seoul tower, in Seoul is an opportunity for visitors to see just how much the South Korean capital has grown over the years.

Featuring a nice array of restaurants serving local food, including one that revolves, and a gift shop, you can take a cable car up the mountain the tower is located on and enjoy the views from various observation decks. Another option is to hike up to the tower through Namsan Park, which features paths and viewpoints. It's photographer's dream; try and catch the city flashing below the mountainous backdrop day or night.

Though it was first opened to the public more than 30 years ago, it was reopened as a cultural landmark in 2005 and now offers art exhibitions, movies, performances, a children's center and even a bakery, making it a cannot-miss destination.

Practical Info

The most expensive fare for the observatory, which is for teens and adults, is 7,000 won, while children get in for just 3,000 won. At the food court, prices aren't so bad either, offering local favorites such as gimbap, noodles, and bibimbap for between 3,000 and 6,500 a plate.

Getting to the tower by car or taxi is prohibited, so the only real way to get there is to either walk or get off the subway at the quite enjoyable Myeongdong Station, where then it is a 10-minute walk from the station to the cable car. A round trip ride on the cable car is 6,300 won between the hours of 10am and 10:30pm.
