  • Amazing place to visit during any part of the day and night! I highly recommend taking a lift that will take you the base of the tower. While ascending in the lift, on the clear day, you will be able to see the entire Seoul. Once at the tower you will need to locate the entrance to the tower to get the top! For those who like to hike, I highly recommend avoid taking a lift and rather park at the base of the mountain and hike up to the tower which should take about about 30-40 minutes (without stops). Wear comfortable clothes and make multiple stops because you will find amazing places for photos or just enjoy the nature and beauty around!
  • The view was spectacular. You’ll have a 360 degree view of Seoul from above. The walk up hill towards the tower was nice and comfortable. There are many artists providing caricature painting or drawing services at the top of the hill. Best time to visit is early morning or just right before sunset. Golden hour will provide mild light which is best for photography & the city will look a lot better at those times.
