N Seoul Tower information
As iconic as kimchi, N Seoul Tower offers panoramic but hazy views of the immense metropolis created almost from scratch after the Korean War. Daytime views are great, but if you come at sunset you can watch the great city morph into a galaxy of twinkling stars. Perched atop Namsan, you can eat in the budget Food Court at ground level or in the more elegant Italian bistro, Sweetree , one floor up. The Beer Garden is another option. High up the tower is Hancook for Korean food and N Grill for expensive Western-style nouveau cuisine served in a revolving restaurant. Other than walking up Namsan to N Seoul Tower or taking the cable car, yet another option is to take yellow bus 2 outside Exit 4 of Chungmuro subway station (Line 3 or 4).
