Vacation Travel Guide

This Seoul landmark can be seen from miles around and offers the finest panoramas of the city.

N Seoul Tower’s first usewas as a TV and radio broadcast tower in 1969. It instantly became a landmarkthanks to its height and location on the peak of Namsan Mountain. Today, the 777-foot(237 meter) tower offers unparalleled views of Seoul and beyond from itsobservation deck, as well as restaurants, cinemas and performance spaces.

The tower first opened asa tourist attraction in 1980, and its famous light displays were added in 2005,and the letter “N” was added to its name. The N stands for “new” look.
