Since opening in 1980, Seoul Tower has become one of South Korea's most popular tourist attractions. Standing at 237 meters and sitting atop the 243-meter high Namsan Mountain, the observatory gives visitors a great view of Seoul and its surrounding area. Now called N Seoul Tower, the 'N' stands for the tower's 'new' look after its 15 billion won remodeling in 2005. There is now a lighting system that gives the tower a changing color scheme, and it can be decorated and customized for different seasons and events. The tower was built in 1971 as a general radio wave tower, where it broadcasted TV and radio signals throughout Seoul. Today, the tower is used by a number of Korean media stations like KBS, MBC, and SBS. The spectacular view at night is a reason why many people love heading to the top of N Seoul Tower.
