To get more of an experience we recommend taking the cable car up to the tower. First you ride a smaller elevator cart up to the cable car terminal. A round trip adult ticket for the cable car is approximately 8,500 KRW.

A gift shop inside the cable car terminal.

 

 

Unlike taking the shuttle, you can enjoy a good city view of Seoul on the cable car.

Outside of N Seoul Tower are many good spots to sight-see and get a good view of Seoul. Many couples visit N Seoul Tower and to symbolize their unbreakable love, leave a lock on the fences. Therefore, you will see tons of locks overflowing on the fences nearby!
