If exiting at the Myeong-dong metro station, exit via exit 1 (NOT 7/8!!!) and wait on the sidewalk. The shuttle bus stop is NOT signposted.

Namsan cable car is the best way to get to tje Namsan seoul tower if you do not want to get tired. A round trip fare of 8,500kw for adult and 5,500 for kids and 6,000 for single journey. See picture for reference. If you...More

While the line for the cable car can be long & crowded, it is worth the wait for the panoramic views of Namsan. Go during the peak of fall foliage or spring cherry blossoms for the best views! Make sure to check the visibility index...More

The old cable car which represents Namsan and Seoul. It's nothing special comparing to brand new ones in the country. But, visitors would better try when Namsan is covered with snow, cherry blossoms or fall foliages. Considering the distance, people may complain it's expensive. But,...More

Took the cable car going up to N Seoul Tower. We were greeted with long lines. Rode the bus on our way back to Myeongdong which was easier. Don’t get the round trip tickets and take the bus on your way down.

We arrived soon after they opened and had no wait to get in a cable car. For 8500 you get a return ride. Which on a cold spring day seemed more appealing than walking! Worth it if there is no wait. However on a warmer...More

When you are healthy and don't have kids or older people with you: Save your time and money and walk up the hill. You will wait at the queue longer than you need to walk up. And you save some money.

A short duration ride up to Namsan Park by this cable car is possible. Climbing up by walking is also possible. I guess cable car cost is a bit expensive.

I guess this is posted in the wrong category, this is not really a question, more a strange statement?
