Visit Seoul: Seoul Sky

Since we were at Lotte World, we couldn't pass up the chance to visit Seoul Sky.  

Standing 123 stories (555 meters) high, it's the tallest building in South Korea, and the 5th tallest in the world.

We visited on a day when we saw lots of school groups go in, so we thought we should purchase a Fast Pass, but the employee said they were not selling Fast Passes because it was not very busy.  We instead bought premium passes to get a drink (or ice cream!) in the lounge.

On the way up to the observatory is a Holnik exhibit - an "Earth Traveler" character, and it is embedded in movie scenes and displays leading up to the elevator entrance.

The entrance to Seoul Sky was super neat.  You get escorted into a room on the 117th floor to watch a short film about Seoul Sky, and the screen rises to reveal the view (you can watch an IG reel here).

The views were incredible!  Even though it was an overcast day, to see all the buildings, homes, the Han River, and even Lotte World Adventure from above was just spectacular!
I was so intrigued with just how packed the city was with buildings after buildings after buildings.  

We went to the 123rd floor to redeem our drink coupons, which also allowed for ice cream.

Ginseng Tea

I had a Ginseng Tea (ginseng is super popular throughout Korea), and the kids got ice cream.  I was expecting a single scoop of ice cream, but each child got 4 scoops in a fancy dish plus a cookie!

With multiple levels of viewing, we didn't encounter any mass crowds, and the windows are all large and clear for optimal viewing and photos.  

Seoul Sky is definitely a must visit for amazing views of South Korea!
