Quite often when travelling abroad, one finds themselves lost amongst a plethora of activities available to them, right at their disposal. You never know which attraction to visit, you’ve checked a thousand different reviews, and TripAdvisor has become both your best friend and your worst enemy. You sit helplessly in front of your computer, staring at your screen, with 100 different tabs staring straight back, and you wonder if you’ll ever create the perfect itinerary.
Well, we can’t help you complete your perfect itinerary, but we can definitely give you a perfect must-go suggestion to put on there, just to help out a little bit. Because, you know, we love to help out our Fever Fam!
The Seoul Sky Observatory sits at the top of the Lotte World Tower, a whole 123 floors up; reaching a height of 555m to make it the tallest building in Korea. If you’re looking to get a view of Seoul, this is definitely the place to go. Standing on that top floor looking down, there are literally no other buildings at the same height as you. You get to feel as though you truly are on top of the world. The views are astounding!
While you're there you can experience a number of things, such as the Sky Deck, which is the highest floor inside that allows you to marvel at the breathtaking views the bustling city of Seoul has to offer. Or maybe seeing it through a pane of glass inside isn’t enough for you? Then hop out onto the Sky Terrace, sitting 486m high, where you can stand outside and breathe in the refreshing air as it wraps itself around you while the sounds of the city pass by.
To reach these spectacular floors, take a ride on the Sky Shuttle, an elevator that moves fast while screens on the walls and ceiling put on a little show as you wait to arrive on your selected floor. These are just a few of the things you can do while you’re there!
At the end of this magnificent experience, you’re going to want to never leave and remember it forever. Well, sadly you will have to leave, as they close at 10:00 p.m. Sun.-Thurs. and 11:00 p.m. Fri.-Sat.; but you can make sure you capture the memory by taking a picture with your friends or family in the Photo Zone, capturing you all together above the busy city of Seoul. That really completes the experience! Of course, there are gift shops available for you to purchase some souvenirs to make the moment that bit more special.
Hopefully, you’ve added a definite must-visit to your itinerary, and now you can close off one of those tabs on your computer. You’re welcome!
Let us know if you’ve ever visited SEOUL SKY before, and what you thought of the experience!
