As well as the tower itself, the N Seoul Plaza which surrounds the tower entrance is a lovely place to
spend some time. A relaxing and vibrant outdoor space where visitors can eat, shop, picnic, people-watch or

The Korea Tourism

Being one of Seoul’s top attractions, this can also become very busy during peak season, at weekends, and
around sunset. Get there early to avoid watching the sunset in the queue for the cable car!!!
