The best place to get a 360 bird’s eye view of Seoul is right on top of Namsan Mountain at N Seoul Tower! It’s the only observatory in Seoul, so there’s nowhere else you can go to have such a view.

For Singaporeans, you might want to get guaranteed tickets for N Seoul Tower from Changi Recommends at Singapore Changi Airport, simply because it’s cheaper and you don’t even have to queue at N Seoul Tower (because the queues there can get very long!)

To get the tickets from Changi Recommends, you can click here to purchase the attraction tickets and collect them from Changi Recommends Counter (open 24 hours at your preferred terminal) and you are set to go!

You can also get the tickets from other attractions in South Korea such as Everland and Lotte World from Changi Recommends too because they are up to 40% more affordable than getting it at the actual location!

N Seoul Tower is the highest point in Seoul, offering you picturesque view of the city’s landscape.

Before you get to enjoy the views, you have to be prepared to do a little climb up the steep slope.

Yes, it’s quite steep. Take your own time to climb up, at your own pace.

But it’s definitely worth the climb because you get awesome views thereafter.

As mentioned earlier, if you are a Singaporean, I would recommend you to get the guaranteed tickets from Changi Recommends at Singapore Changi Airport because it’s at a discounted price and I don’t even have to queue when I reach N Seoul Tower.

All I have to do is just to walk in the attraction like a boss!

Other than getting a good view of the city, it’s also a popular romantic hangout for couples and lovebirds. You can lock your love here with the padlocks.

There are several ways to get up to N Seoul Tower. For the adventurous, you can hike up. Otherwise, one of the most convenient modes is either by shuttle bus 2, 3 and 5 which passes by various subway stations. If you want something special, take the cable car although it still requires a little climb of stairs. So if you are feeling very lazy, the bus would be the best mode available.

  • Bus 2 – Chungmuro Station and Donnguk Uni Station
  • Bus 3 – Seoul Station, Itaewon Station, Hangangjin Station
  • Bus 5 – Myeongdong Station, Chungmuro Station

If it’s your first time to Seoul, this is definitely a must visit for you!
