Seoul’s Namsan Mountain is 860 feet tall, and at the top sits the N Seoul Tower rising an additional 777 feet. This aerial perch is the highest point in Seoul, making for some amazing views.
Far below, Seoul sprawls in a toy-like wonderland, while North Korea lurks at the horizon on a clear day. After you see the sights, don’t forget to buy a postcard: N Seoul Tower touts itself as the “highest mailbox,” so be sure to take advantage of this lofty title.
As you stand at 1,637 feet with the sun setting in the distance, you’re bound to wax lyrical as you write your note. Don’t let the poetry of your words go to waste—send your postcard to someone special. Mom?

The Heart of Seoul
End a day in Seoul with a sunset ride up a cable car to the highest point in the city and the base of the N Seoul Tower. You'll get some stunning views, and even better, a look at thousands of "love locks" affixed to fences and huge metal trees by countless lovebirds.
The couples who arrived without a lock used their plastic phone cases instead, with love letters written on them. Love locks can be found all over the world—Paris, Serbia, Verona—and are meant to express a love that cannot be broken.
At the apex of N Seoul Tower is the N Grill, a romantic date spot if ever there was one.
Views of the city from 1,574 feet above sea level make for a memorable occasion, but add to this the nouvelle French menu, impressive wine list, and decadent desserts—and this is one indulgent night out.
If meat is your penchant, know that N Grill is known for its juicy steaks.
