Our Visit 

There are several ways to get to N Seoul Tower. 

In the spring, many people walk up the Namsan Dulle-gil for a mini hike up. However, you can either take the Namsan circular bus or take the cable car up the mountain. When we visited, we decided that we wanted to go up via the cable car. If you go up via the cable car, you will get dropped off at these stairs. From here, you can go up these stairs and you will see the octagonal pavilion of N Seoul Tower. 

Namsan has been known as a place where if couples go, their love will last for over 100 years. Therefore, it has become a tradition for many couples to come here and hang love locks as a way to hope for eternal love. 

Head up the stairs and you will arrive at the plaza in front of N Seoul Tower. To get to the observatory, go down the stairs to the 'observation deck entrance'. 

Now you can finally head up to the observation deck! 

There is a media art exhibition that you can enjoy before you board the elevator that is provided by N Seoul Tower. The theme of the exhibition was 'Inside Seoul' and this exhibition expresses the four seasons, past, present, and the future of Seoul! 

After looking at the exhibitions for a little, we got on the elevator. The elevator was very fast! It took around 30 seconds to get to the observatory.

When you arrive at the observatory, you will be shown the photo you took at the entrance. If you want, you can print the photos or make them into magnets or put them in frames!

The observatory during the day is fun to explore, we tried to look at all the buildings one by one from above. This is a great spot for glamorous photos if you are looking to spice up your Instagram feed. 

There are Korean phrases that are written on the windows using just the first letters! This is a great time to brush up on your Korean skills. Can you figure out what some of these are saying? We will help you out with the first one, which has ㅂ(b)ㄱ(g)ㅅ(s)ㄷ(d) which stands for "bogoshipda". Do you know what it means? If you guessed 'I miss you' you are correct! 

There is also a 'Weeny Been' shop and a gift shop inside the observatory. You can send domestic mail at the gift shop. If you purchase postcards and stamps and put them in the sky postbox, the letter will be delivered in 2-4 weeks. 

After visiting the observatory of N Seoul Tower, we went out to the main area. Although the weather was cloudy and gray, we were still able to enjoy the panoramic view of Seoul. 

We hope you can also make it on a trip to N Seoul Tower!
