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.

Seoul city looks like toys when you see them from 500 m above the ground.
I also captured Lotte World outdoor which is located just bellow the tower.
Seoul Sky got 3 records from Guiness World Records, with the tallest double elevator, the fastest double deck elevator, and the highest glass-floor observation deck in the world.
They also have their own mascots.
The journey to the sky starts from the entrance which is located in the B2 floor of Lotte World Mall (exit 1 Jamsil Station). The ticket price is 27.000 won per person.
Before taking the elevator to the sky, they offer you short history and information about Seoul Sky with high sophisticated and artistic media.
As you arrive at floor 117th (the first floor of observation deck), you will see such minimalist modern interior which is amazing.
If you go up to the 118th floor, you will find the glass-floor observation deck where you can see the ground clearly under your feet.
If you have more budget, you can also try to have meal in the sky of Seoul, the highest restaurant in Korea, which is on 123rd floor.
I also spotted a super romantic moment when the saxophonist took one of my friend to the centre and played an instrument for her. She said that she hopes that her future husband to propose her like that.
