When you search for the best views in Seoul there are a few places that I am sure you have encountered more than a few times. The Han River, Lotte Tower, and Namsan Tower (also called N Seoul Tower). Each one of these locations is famous for its view and is popular because of it. I’m sure you’ve seen countless photos from these locations, but here I am today to share some more!
While Namsan Tower is definitely one of the most well-known views in Seoul it is also one of the best. I guess that’s why it’s famous after all. But while N Seoul Tower may be a cliched location to photograph, that doesn’t mean you can’t get fantastic results. Even without going up the tower there are some fantastic views.
Myeongdong can be seen in the distance, to the north of Namsan.
If you are carrying a tripod and gear it can be hard to get the best position. Namsan Tower is often very crowded and there are a LOT of people. However, if you can fight through the crowds there are some amazing views to behold.
I would highly recommend checking the sunset times before visiting. This means that you can be prepared and get the best viewing positions for the sunset! N Seoul Tower is located right in the heart of the city. Being right next to Myeongdong means it is both easy to access and has amazing views.
As the sun goes down the view almost becomes even more beautiful.
I am working on putting together a much bigger and more comprehensive article about the best views in Seoul. This post will eventually be added to that so please keep an eye out and subscribe to my mailing list to keep updated.
If you weren’t planning to visit Namsan Tower though, I highly recommend that you do. Whether or not you like to visit tourist attractions, Namsan is an attraction that is famous for a good reason.
