|The tower at night||The tower in the day|
To get to N Seoul Tower, there are a few ways. So far, I've gone the cable car route. I took the Namsan Cable Car bus, which was free to get to the station eventhough where I stayed was like a short hike up the road. Then we bought the return tickets for KRW8,000 for the cable car. The car itself is big and can fit a whole group so you don't really feel like you're dangling or swinging back and forth on this thing. The last time I went last June, they've in fact renovated the boarding area. Looks newer now. I also read you could take a bus to the entrance and then you would have to hike a bit. Not sure how much.

During my 2nd trip to Korea in November 2012, my travel partner expressed desire of visiting one of the Teddy Bear Museums in Korea. So I figured let's save time and go to both the Teddy Museum at N Seoul Tower and visit the tower itself. They even have a package entry fee at a discounted price. At that time the sky was already turning dark. I thought of experiencing both day and night view but we were told we have to visit the museum first. I've already been to one in Jeju on my first trip so I would say this is kind of a smaller version of it but still enjoyable.
After the museum visit, we head to the lift to go to the observation deck of the tower. On the way to the top, we were treated to a video presentation on the lift's ceiling so as to make us feel like we're flying off to space. This reminded me of the time when I visited Top of the Rock at Rockefeller New York. Luckily the ceiling (or even floor) wasn't see-through or else I would have freaked out.
