If you’re a fan of Korean dramas like me, you’ll easily recognize N Seoul Tower. It is a complex atop the Namsan Mountain and the panoramic view of Seoul and surrounding areas makes it a great filming location. But the N Seoul Tower is not just a tourist spot because it still serves as a transmission tower. In fact, about 48% of the national audio population watches broadcasting through N Seoul Tower. A visit to Seoul won’t definitely be complete without dropping by N Seoul Tower which is a proud landmark of Seoul.
Here are the photos I took in March of 2012. Enjoy!
As I said, we went to N Seoul Tower by Taxi and I don’t recommend it. There are several ways to get to N Seoul Tower and when we went there recently, we used the Cable Car. Definitely something that I highly recommend.
By Cable Car:
To reach the boarding place, walk for about 10~15 minutes following the street of the right side of the Pacific Hotel, after coming out of the exit 3 of Myeong-dong Station (line 4)

Child: one way 3,500 won/ return 5,000 won
