N Seoul Tower is the most popular attraction in Korea. A lot of couples go there to put on some love locks. I haven’t been there with my boyfriend and I just realized that I’ve been to N Seoul Tower SEVEN times!!! Oh well, I’ll just make a guide for other travelers.
I first went there last March 2016, I already made a blog about N Seoul Tower but I think this will be better! I went there yesterday just to make this blog post. Kidding! I toured someone yesterday and took some pictures that can give you an idea of the activities you can do there.
Things to do in N Seoul Tower
1. Take a pic in this iconic Hallyu chair
According to a survey, N Seoul Tower was voted as the most suitable place for promoting Hallyu. Hallyu refers to the rising popularity of Korean popular culture including TV shows and music, which has secured hordes of fans in Asia, Europe and the Americas.
When I went there yesterday, I found that guy silhouette with a lot of vandalism. It’s sad that some tourists don’t know how to respect the tourist attractions.
2. Sit in this heart shaped chairs behind the love locks trees
As I’ve said in the introduction, I haven’t been here with my boyfriend. Good thing, I was able to bring a person very dear to me, my mother.
PS. Don’t try to sit here alone. You’ll look heavy!
3. Enjoy the view of the Seoul cityscape
If you’re 5 ft and below, using this telescope will be a challenge. In fact, I tiptoed in that picture! You have to insert some coins to use that telescope. It was foggy that day so I didn’t put on some coins and just posed for this picture! You can see the buildings without using it anyway.

It has a lot of drama posters and albums with a signature of the actors and artists. The admission is free!
