Seoul Sky

Seoul Sky is the newest tourist attraction in Seoul. Just opened 3 weeks ago on April 4th, Seoul Sky is the observation deck in Lotte World Tower, the tallest building in Korea, 5th tallest in the world now. Seoul Sky offers you such amazing view of Seoul city from “sky”, from 117th-121th floor around 500 m above grounds. The observation deck itself is the third highest in the world.
