    Good view as a bird
    There was a long Q, but for the group tour, the guide can find quick way. Entrance is exciting with video installatin of car race. Said to be able to see Mongolia fro above, but I cannot see. Very high and can view the whole region. Suvinior shop is there.

    Worth Your Time
    Incredibly smooth ride up 117 floors to multiple observation decks, including one with a “glass” floor. Great 360 views of Seoul. Well organized and timed so the observation decks weren’t crowded and you could stay as long as you wanted. The mall was busy but so spacious it didn’t feel crowded either Plenty of places to eat and shop!

    Experience of dizzying beauty!
    Lotte World Tower is the tallest building in the nation and the fifth tallest building in the world. The observatory is located on floors 117-123 of the tower and offers a panoramic view of the entire capital, which is beautiful both day and night. SEOUL SKY consists of an exhibition area, an observation deck, a viewing terrace, a dessert bar, a lounge and more. To get to Seoul Sky, visitors must take the Sky Shuttle, a double-decker elevator that reaches speeds of 600 meters per minute!

    What a view!
    The 555m tall Seoul world tower is the best way to get a 360 degree view of Seoul. We had purchased tickets online, and we breezed through the entry by scanning the QR code. The elevator was covered in LED screens inside, and there were three levels of windows at the top so no one was fighting for window space. You must try the glass floor area too, it's a thrilling and scary experience.

    Nice shops and view from the windows
    Shops were good, view was epic, and it wasn't overly expensive for once! Its always nice coming every week to see whats new as there's always something happening. If you've been experiencing transport issues to get there as of right now its because they blocked a road.

    Skybridge walk, great fun!
    We visited the tower tondo the skybridge walk. It was great fun. We bought tickets on the day in the early afternoon. We pretty much went straight to the bridge but en route saw some art installations / light show. The biedge tour was great. You got a boiler suit, a harness, a helmet, a pouch to put your phone in - to clip to yourself. Each group has a max of 12 people. I think there was only 8 in ours. When you access the outside area, there are a few flights of stairs to walk up. You are however clipped in via your harness to a rail that goes up the stairs. In your pair/personal group , they allow you to go onto the bridge and take photos of you. The after, your whole group you all stand on the bridge and chill our enjoying the view. The bridge is metal but he cente of the bridge is clear perplex This may have been the most expensive activity we did in South Korea but it was worth it It was a great experience.

From the top of this tower, one has an amazing view over all of Seoul; it's a rewarding, although pricey, experience. After paying the admission charge, guests must walk a considerable distance before using the elevator to reach the top of the tower. They also have to wait around while staff members take mandatory pictures of them; additional fees apply if you want a copy of any of the images.

If you are in Seoul you must visit the Tower for awesome views of the city and if brave enough to walk on the glass floor. The shopping centre is also awesome with lots of Branded stores and Restaurants

It is easy to get to Lotte World Tower as there is a subway station just underneath the site. But the cluster of buildings which are all interconnected at this area can be confusing. There are two mega malls which have very similar names but they are as different as day and night.
First there is the Lotte World which is a huge indoor and outdoor amusement park and it’s own attached mall. Then there is the Lotte World Tower which itself is a huge high end mall, duty free outlet and has the Seoul Sky attraction.
Each mall is targeting very different type of tourists. The thrill seekers will likely prefer Lotte World while those wanting to take things slow and enjoy the view of the city will prefer Lotte World Tower. Similarly, those seeking a bargain and general shopping would prefer Lotte World’s mall. While those with deep pocket and a love for all things luxurious should love Lotte World Tower, its filled with floors of foreign and local luxury branded goods.
This is quite a nice place to explore if the weather is bad as there are plenty to see and do. But at the end of the day it’s still just a typical mega mall, the same in many parts of the world. With so many other attractions in Seoul, would be a waste to spend too much time here.

Great views. It costs 29,000KRW. You’ll likely spend 10-15 minutes looking at the Seoul megalopolis. You will have spent 15 mins to 1+ hr in line before riding the elevator up. To get down, you must go from floor 117 up to floor 120 (where the restaurant, bar, stores are) where you will wait in line again. Again, the views are impressive. Just make sure you allocate the time!
