N Tower Seoul at Night

N Tower Seoul also know as Naman Tower or Seoul Tower is located on Namsam Mountain in downtown Seoul.  The Tower was built in 1969 as a Television Communications Tower and then opened to the public in 1980.  The tower is 236.7m high and the total height above sea level is 479.7m. In 2005 N Tower re-opened after some renovation.

Outside the tower there are usually some art exhibitions and a laser show.

There are two laser shows. One runs on the hour, every hour for 10 minutes while the second show runs half past the hour, every hour for 10 minutes.
Here is a video of the laser show I took in 2009
